Original X Announce Anniversary Tour

(PR) The punk scene of Los Angeles in the late 70's saw its share of great acts rise up out of the streets, but few were as talented and durable as X. They were the quintessential L.A. punk rockers that have become a world-class, live, rock & roll band. Now, X is back out on tour in 2008 with something really special; the original line-up of John Doe, Exene, Billy Zoom, and D.J. Bonebrake are set to rock again in the 13 - 31 Tour across the U.S.A.

Formed in 1977 when Billy Zoom and John Doe placed virtually identically worded ads in the same paper on the same day looking to start a band. Exene soon followed and once DJ was found the band complete. Discovered by ex-Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek, the band went on to record such landmark albums as Los Angelesin 1980, the similarly punked-up Wild Gift in '81, while their '82 album, Under The Big Black Sun began what would be a long career in merging hard rock, country, Americana, and folk into their fiery mix.

Building on the success of their last national outing, the As the World Burns Tour in 2006, X is starting off the first leg of their 13 - 31 Tour in March 2008 at the famed SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas. A specially selected show will be taped for a 1-hour special on DirecTV.
