THE TUBES Announce UK Shows

The San Francisco-based punk-rock band THE TUBES whose whose eponymous 1975 debut album included the unforgettable rock anthem “White Punks On Dope” will be returning to the UK with their “MONDO PULP TOUR” for 12 nights in October 2016 [dates below video.]

We’re thrilled to be coming back to the country that started it all for us,” the Tubes frontman Fee Waybill told us, “I embrace my British heritage; the beer and the fish and chips and the best rock and roll fans in the world.  The all-new Mondo Pulp Tour will be big fun.”

The band’s over-the-top theatrical live performances visual of the band are known to rock fans around the world for their quasi-pornographic and satirical take on the media, consumerism, and politics, celebrated by deranged characters on stage like lead singer Fee Waybill. And including the larger-than-life fictitious platform-booted, drugged out British glam rock star Quay Lewd. 

In 1977 The Tubes toured the UK, many of their shows were banned due to British censorship. In February 1978 they released the innovative live album: What Do You Want From Live – recorded at London’s Hammersmith Apollo in November 1977, followed by their television debut in the UK on The Old Grey Whistle Test.

This is a great chance for UK audiences to catch-up with their antics…
