Having completed the first leg of their North American tour during March and April, the Texas trio is set to hit the road to continue with the second leg of the tour.
The tour will begin on July 14 in Woodlands, Texas, and then move across the country, stretching the tour into September. Most of the performances will be a triple bill with Stray Cats and The Pretenders sharing the spotlight.
The band’s original plans for a European tour this summer were scrapped due to Dusty Hill’s medical problems that stem from a benign growth in his middle ear. Hell of a thing for a musician, of all people!
Having separated themselves from RCA records a while back, the band is currently looking for a new label to partner with and get started on a new album. The group’s last album of new material, Mescalero, hit the stores back in 2003.
