The Afghan Whigs and The Church announce co-headlining tour


The Afghan Whigs and The Church have announced a co-headlining U.S. tour.

The joint run begins June 18 in Glenside, Pennsylvania, and concludes July 13 in Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 9.

In a statement, The Church vocalist Steve Kilbey calls the tour an “idea whose time has surely come.”

“I was an 18-year-old college freshman laying in bed listening to [the radio] late one night when I heard a song that I described later as sounding like David Bowie fronting The Byrds,” says Whigs frontman Greg Dulli. “Thankfully they back announced ‘The Unguarded Moment’ by The Church and I was on my way to buying my first import.”

“Soon after I bought two more after learning of The Blurred Crusade and Seance,” Dulli continues. “It was official. I loved The Church. Three years later, the four kids who were about to become The Afghan Whigs played ‘One Day’ by The Church in [bassist] John Curley‘s living room and we were off and running.”
