Them Crooked Vultures Announce Tour

America got the first taste of Dave Grohl / Josh Homme / John Paul Jones supergroup Them Crooked Vultures with their live debut in Chicago, but ever since the boys have been hanging in Europe, treating fans at surprise shows to songs like “Dead End Friends” and “Elephants”. But don’t fret, dear stateside fans: Them Crooked Vultures will return to the U.S. on tour this fall!

The band’s just-announced nine-date U.S. jaunt kicks October 1 with a pair of gigs in Austin, TX, including a set for Austin City Limits. The rockers will hit major Midwest and East Coast cities like Detroit and Boston before touring the UK in December, but, sadly, will skip New York and the entire West Coast. Let’s hope this brief run is just the beginning!
