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.
This would be a top 5 Coachella all-time wish list performance for me.
It clearly says May will be the first show
Ahhhhhh. Oh yeah :(
sorry handnanner. didn't mean to http://www.bocasmarinetours.com/imag...in_Parade2.jpg
Killed at Primavera. Apparently Dulli has been spending some time in the gym...
Other parts up on YT too
They also performed on Jimmy Fallon last week. Support for 2013.
West Coast dates are a must! In SF Bay ideally, but I would fly to LA or Seattle.
Has anyone seen them on this tour? I would love to hear a board member's thoughts on this reunion
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...
Signed for 2013.
Their set at Lolla was one of my favorites of the weekend. I would love to see them again.
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.
