2013


On Sunday 27th May 2012 Alexandra Palace will host the first show in 13 years from Cincinnati’s rock legends THE AFGHAN WHIGS. Formed in 1986, the bands career from then until 2001 saw them release six acclaimed albums highlighted by the classic Gentlemen LP in 1993. Fusing classic rock with grunge-era distortion and a heavy soul influence, Afghan Whigs were one of the most renowned live bands of their time and this long awaited reformation will no doubt be a very special event.

ATP are also pleased to confirm their return to Asbury Park, New Jersey USA where they will follow last year’s debut in that city with a 2012 I’ll Be Your Mirror event, the Saturday night of which will be headlined by The Afghan Whigs and curated by the Whigs’ frontman Greg Dulli. Tickets & accommodation for the three day event running September 21st-23rd will go on sale in early January 2012 when the start of the fantastic line-up will also be announced – fans can sign up now to receive info about a pre-sale.

Too late. The new car smell would be completely gone by then.

This set was amazing. So glad it was streamed. When We Two Parted was especially memorable.

Now we need to get some West Coast dates.

West Coast dates are a must! In SF Bay ideally, but I would fly to LA or Seattle.

Greg Dulli is my boss. He always said he'd be willing to do Coachella if approached. No word on whether 2013 is in the cards tho. Coolest boss ever btw...

Their set at Lolla was one of my favorites of the weekend. I would love to see them again.

Twice (Primavera and Koko in London). Primavera was good, but the Koko show would be in my top 5 of the year easily (and I'm into triple figures). Dulli has been on fire. Stopped eating all the pies too.

One guy at the Koko show was quite drunk. He was going on about how he'd waited 18 years for this. By the 2nd song he'd been thrown out of the venue for elbowing two different girls in the face in the moshpit.
