This Saturday, August 1st, Greg Dulli will debut two very different shows he recently performed live from Gold-Diggers in Los Angeles. Dulli taped the two sets of material taken from his recent solo record Random Desire along with other songs from his career. Tickets are on sale now for both shows (one at 8PM GMT for fans in the UK and Europe, and one at 9PM EST for those tuning in from North America). Tickets are $12 and are available here. Ticket bundles with brand new t-shirts are also available.
Originally planned to stream live Dulli decided to pre-tape both shows due to the Covid-19 situation worsening in the Los Angeles area.
“I wanted to keep everyone on the crew safe and to ensure that this special moment could happen.” Dulli remarked.
These streamed shows look to be his only live performances for 2020. Dulli was scheduled to tour the album in North America the fall, but those shows will now be rescheduled to 2021. More details to be announced on that shortly.
For the last 30 years, Greg Dulli, frontman of The Afghan Whigs and The Twilight Singers, has been the poet laureate of the bizarre whims and cruel tangents of desire. A foremost authority on the sell-your-soul rewards of carnal lust, the high voltage epiphanies of chemical enhancement, and the serotonin lows left in their wake. Therein lies Random Desire, the first solo album under Dulli’s own name which was released earlier this year, on February 21st via Royal Cream/BMG.
