X’s landmark album, Los Angeles turns 40 this year and the band plans to celebrate it in style.
The band announced a special one-off show in Los Angeles at the Wiltern on April 25 to mark the occasion. There, they’ll be performing the album in its entirety. Cracker will open that show.
X announced additional tour dates with Violent Femmes as well. That jaunt starts on May 28 in Toronto before concluding in New York City a few weeks later.
The group re-released four of their classic albums last year on vinyl and singer John Doe celebrated his 67th birthday last week.
