The ever-energetic classic punksters, X, have been blazing the tour trail over the past three months on their X-35: 35th Anniversary Tour. Now, the year is coming to a close and they’ve been up the West Coast, over to Europe, played with Ray Manzarek and made it to Philadelphia for the first ever “Made in America Festival”. Holiday shows for the X-35 Tour will hit sixteen dates in fourteen cities, including Dallas, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and L.A.
Before the holiday run commences, X will be appearing in Austin for the “Fun, Fun, Fun Fest” on November 2 as well as hitting Dallas for a one off show. The Holiday run begins on November 30th and runs thru December 7th hitting the East Coast for the first annual “Guitar Slingers Ball”, where the band will be sharing the bill with the Reverend Horton Heat, and a special guest, Austin rock duo Not in the Face. The remainder of the tour matches up the iconic sounds of X with The Father Figures and Scorpion vs. Tarantula, beginning on December 15th in Phoenix before closing out the year on December 28 & 29 with two shows at Slims in San Francisco.
After a West Coast tour this past May, the band headed across the pond for a sold-out European Summer run, where X once again joined Pearl Jam as their special guests. The bands hit Manchester, the Isle of Wight, Amsterdam, Belgium, France, the Czech Republic, Germany, Sweden and Norway, before wrapping up in Copenhagen, Denmark. 13 shows in 9 countries!
The L.A. punk scene in the late 70s saw its share of greatness, but few acts as talented as the now world-class, live, rock & roll band X. Their 2008 “13-31” Tour across the U.S. was really something special, celebrating the band’s 31st anniversary. 2009 shaped up to be just as amazing for the veteran rockers, with appearances at SXSW and Coachella Festivals, along with their own “X – TRL” Tour, where fans to helped select each night’s set list. Last year, X celebrated the 31st anniversary of the legendary album, Los Angeles, one that not only defined their career, but an entire musical genre as well. The band also celebrated the re-release of their landmark award winning rock-umentary, X: The Unheard Music.
The original line-up of X is John Doe, Exene Cervenka, Billy Zoom, and D.J. Bonebrake.
