The Afghan Whigs to Celebrate 21 Years Since ‘Gentlemen’ with Re-Release & Tour
Nineties alt-rockers The Afghan Whigs are gearing up to honor the 21st anniversary of their most well-known album, 1993’s Gentleman. On October 28, the guys will release a two-disc set featuring remastered versions of the album’s original tracks, as well as rarer tunes like demos, B-sides and live performances.
They’ll also be hitting the road to promote the rerelease, starting on September 9 at the House of Blues in Cleveland and then on to a series of shows through the Midwest, eventually playing Riot Fest in Chicago on September 13 and then moving on to a run through the South, hitting (among other places) Atlanta and New Orleans. The guys will then trek into the Northeast, making their way up and down the East Coast, before dipping into North Carolina on their way back through Midwest to the West Coast. They’ll play the Fillmore in San Francisco on October 23 and then head down the coast. After playing Los Angeles on October 25, the band will head out to play Salt Lake City and Denver. They’ll finish with a show at the Mohawk in Austin on October 31.
