This year marks the 25th anniversary of Social Distortion's 1990 self-titled album, and to celebrate, the band is launching a summer headlining tour on which they will perform Social Distortion live in its entirety. The tour begins July 28 in Tempe, Arizona and wraps up September 11 in Pasa Robles, California. Tickets will go on sale April 24 at 10 a.m. local time. Visit SocialDistortion.com for all ticket info.
"We are very excited about this tour," says frontman Mike Ness in a statement. "It's not often we get to celebrate anniversaries of records, or play them in their entirety, but this record was a milestone for us and after rehearsing it we realized it was a hell of a set...high energy and good flow."
"It was a great feeling to play songs that I hadn't played in twenty years, or more," Ness continues. "It's inspirational to 'revisit' this album; especially during the writing of a new record. All I can say is 'it's gonna be a kick ass show!'"
Social Distortion was the band's first album to enter the Billboard 200 and became their best selling record. It also produced hit singles in "Ball and Chain" and Social Distortion's cover of the Johnny Cash classic, "Ring of Fire."
