After taking some time off from the band to pursue solo work, frontman Jakob Dylan hits the road again with The Wallflowers this summer. The band unveiled the first dates of a three-month tour, which is presently set to run from June 16 at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA, through August 16 at the Ridgefield Playhouse in Ridgefield, CT.
The coast-to-coast outing will hit more than 30 cities in the U.S. Of those dates currently confirmed, highlights are a June 21 performance at Showbox at The Market in Seattle, WA, a July 3 session at the Music Box at the Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ, a July 20 concert at Belly Up in Aspen, CO, and an August 14 show at Boarding House Park in Lowell, MA.
Pre-sale and public on-sale dates and times varying from show to show. Complete ticketing information and updates can be found on the Wallflowers’ official Web site.
The Wallflowers released their most recent album “Rebel, Sweetheart” in 2005. In recent years, the group has performed only scattered shows, set back in part by the departure of longtime keyboardist Rami Jaffee in 2007. Despite several musicians playing in concert with the Wallflowers, the band officially stands as a trio.
During the Wallflowers’ downtime, Dylan, the son of the legendary Bob Dylan, released his solo debut “Seeing Things” in 2008. He has performed solo and also with a touring band named The Gold Mountain Rebels to support that release.
The Wallflowers made their self-titled debut in 1992, followed four years later by their greatest commercial success, “Bringing Down the Horse.” In all, the band has released five studio albums. It is unknown whether the upcoming summer tour will be followed by a sixth release from a new Wallflowers line-up.
