‘An Evening With Greg Dulli’ will feature Dulli leading his stripped down band through a wide selection of songs encompassing his entire career along with debuting several new ones as well. The tour will be a limited run coming to smaller theatres, churches and a synagogue. Only eighteen North American shows are scheduled along with 14 shows in Europe (Ireland, United Kingdom, Belgium, Sweden, Poland, Czech Republic, Serbia, Italy and Spain).
Special guest literary stylist Derrick Brown (http://www.brownpoetry.com/about/) will support on all North American shows; while Manuel Agnelli, the lead singer for legendary Italian rock band Afterhours http://www.afterhours.it will support in Europe beginning on Feb 13th in Leuven, Belgium.
Tickets for all shows will go on sale this Friday.
Also, beginning today at the newly launched www.gregdulli.com fans can download a free brand new track of Dulli’s version of the Sharon Van Etten song “A Crime” featuring special guest Ani DiFranco.
Dulli’s band, The Afghan Whigs are currently in the studio working on a new album for Sub Pop Records, which will be released later in 2016. More details on that will be announced at a later date.
Greg Dulli began his musical career as the front man and guitarist for the pioneering band The Afghan Whigs in 1987. Praised by critics and fans alike, the band originally released six studio albums, before originally disbanding in the late 90’s. Dulli went on to form The Twilight Singers, who have released five albums including the critically lauded Blackberry Belle, Powder Burns and Dynamite Steps in 2003, 2006 & 2011 respectively. In 2008, Dulli collaborated with close friend Mark Lanegan to form The Gutter Twins.
In 2012, The Afghan Whigs reunited for a massively successful tour that found them performing at major festivals like Lollapalooza, sharing the stage with Usher at SXSW, and selling out prestigious venues throughout the U.S., Europe, and Southern Hemisphere. The tour was then followed in 2014 by the release of the band’s first new album in 16 years; the critically acclaimed Do to the Beast.
