San Francisco-based rock band THE TUBES whose eponymous 1975 debut album included the rock anthem “White Punks on Dope” will celebrate their return to the UK in November 2017 for six club dates and five arena concerts where they’ll support Alice Cooper.
As usual, prepare for non-stop theatrical mayhem and outstanding rock music…
News of the UK tour tallys with the August release of their “A&M Years” Box Set which includes the band’s first five studio albums.
“We’re thrilled to return to the country that started it all for us,” says the Tubes frontman Fee Waybill. “I embrace my British heritage; the beer and the fish and chips and the best rock and roll fans in the world. The tour will be incredible fun.”

The band’s unrestrained showy live performances are known to rock fans worldwide for their quasi-pornographic and satirical take on media, consumerism, and politics. Fee Waybill’s deranged on-stage characters include the larger-than-life platform-booted, drugged-out British glam star Quay Lewd.
