After celebrating their 40th Anniversary in style last year, X are setting their sights on the next decade with a slew of new tour dates, quickly filling their 41st year. More stops have been announced, today, including many with The Psychedelic Furs. Full itinerary is below with more dates to be announced in the coming weeks.
X’s four original members – Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom, and DJ Bonebrake – quickly established the band as one of the best in the first wave of L.A.’s flourishing punk scene. Last year the quartet celebrated its 40th year in music when X: 40 Years of Punk in LosAngeles was unveiled at the Grammy Museum last October and held court on the second floor of the museum until just this last weekend. The exhibit will now travel to Tulsa where it will be on display at the Grammy Museum there, this summer. In a very special moment for the band last fall, they had the chance to celebrate with the red-hot L.A. Dodgers, where Exene threw out the first pitch and John Doe sang the National Anthem at one of Dodgers’ record-breaking season game winners.
