Tom Morello Announces U.S. Tour Dates
We were more than stoked when Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello brought his The Atlas Underground live show to London. Now, it looks like American audiences will get a chance to see Tom play his new record live, as he’s just announced a list of U.S. tour dates in support of the album.
The tour is being hailed as The Atlas Underground: The Last Big Event Before We All Go To Jail. Whether or not the insane list of guest musicians who appeared on Tom’s album will appear along the tour remains to be seen, but we can only hope (fingers crossed that Tom invites out Denzel Curry to perform his killer cover of Bulls On Parade).
Marvel at how one dude can make those sounds with a guitar at the dates below:
03 Jacksonville, FL – Welcome To Rockville
04 Chattanooga, TN – The Signal
05 Asheville, NC – The Orange Peel
07 Asbury Park, NJ – Stone Pony
08 Pittsburgh, PA – Rex Theater
10 Indianapolis, IN – Deluxe at Old National Centre
11 Louisville, KY – Mercury Ballroom
12 Rockingham, NC – Epicenter Festival
14 New York, NY – Irving Plaza
15 Norfolk, VA – The NorVa
17 Columbus, OH – Sonic Temple Festival
18 Buffalo, NY – Town Ballroom
19 Columbia, MD – DC101 Kerfuffle
24 George, WA – End Of The Rainbow Festival
Tom spoke at great length about The Atlas Underground during his recent In Conversation talk with us. Of the song Sleight Of Hand, he said, “It was going to be the first single for [the 2006 album] but Timmy really hated it because he thought it sounded like a Danzig song, which is weird. He yelled ‘Fuck you’ a lot to the head of the label. We said, ‘Let’s not put it on the record because we’re about to get dropped.’ That one will see the light of day.”
