Punk legends X are hitting the road this fall for a series of dates across the U.S. on a special Los Angeles Tour.
Starting off in Philadelphia on September 24th the band will wind their way back to the West Coast before finishing off with their annual December Holiday Shows.
This year X celebrates the 31st Anniversary of the album that not only defined their career, but an entire musical genre as well; Los Angeles. The band will also be celebrating the 26th Anniversary of the rock-umentary, X The Unheard Music. The film will run, in its entirety, on screen before the band hits the stage to perform, track by track, the Los Angeles album. The band encourages the audience to interact with the movie as it plays, it's meant to be heard loud! The film was recently included in the prestigious Sundance Film Institute Independent film archives through The Sundance Institute Collection at UCLA.
Currently X is on the West Coast from June 3rd through June 18th in a brand new series of shows. Billed as the "Boardwalk Beach Party" tour, X will make seven very special appearances, with shows in Anaheim, San Diego, Ventura and the Bay Area.
The L.A. punk scene in the late 70s saw its share of greatness, but few acts as talented as the now world-class, live, rock & roll band X. Their 2008 "13-31" Tour across the U.S. was something really special, celebrating the band's 31st anniversary. 2009 shaped up to be just as amazing for the veteran rockers, with appearances at SXSW and Coachella Festivals, along with their own "X – TRL" Tour, where fans were able to help select each night's set list. 2010 saw Ray Manzarek of Doors fame and producer of the bands first four records join them on stage in San Francisco for two very special performances of the Album Los Angeles.
The original line-up of X is John Doe, Exene, Billy Zoom, and D.J. Bonebrake.
