The "Wallflower World Tour" will feature Krall performing pop classics such as The Mamas and the Papas' "California Dreaming" and the Eagles' "Desperado," and Bob Dylan's "Wallflower," which inspired the upcoming album's title track, among others. Krall will be accompanied onstage by Anthony Wilson (guitar), Dennis Crouch (bass), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Karriem Riggins (drums) and Patrick Warren (Keyboards).
