X, giants of the L.A. punk-rock scene, have announced plans for their first-ever South American tour. The band will visit Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Costa Rica and Mexico City this November as they tour with Pearl Jam.
As previously reported, X will take to the road in September for a series of dates across the U.S. on a Los Angeles Tour, in honore of the 31st anniversary of their seminal Los Angeles album.
Starting in Philadelphia at Riot Fest East on September 24, the band will wind their way to New Orleans for VooDoo Fest on October 29 before heading to South America. On their return, the band will performs out West before finishing off with their annual December Holiday Shows. Dates TBA shortly.
In other X news, John Doe’s new album, Keeper, his first solo album since 2007's A Year in the Wilderness, will be released August 30 on Yep Roc Records. Exene released her latest solo album, The Excitement of Maybe, this past spring and has guested on a number of albums.
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 were able to help select each night’s set list. 2010 saw Ray Manzarek of Doors fame and producer of the band’s first four records join them on stage in San Francisco for two very special performances of the Album Los Angeles.
The original line-up of X is John Doe, Exene, Billy Zoom and D.J. Bonebrake.
