The Wallflowers Announce A Few Tour Dates, New Record

The Wallflowers Announce A Few Tour Dates, New Record

Bob’s favorite son, Jakob Dylan is back with his band The Wallflowers, and they’re set to release a new album in the Fall. They’ve also announced a few tour dates over the summer.

If I remember correctly, back when I was first writing up a post on the Firefly Music Festival that’s going to be held in Delaware, I noted next to The Wallflowers name “who’s absence from Summerland 2012 is Baffling “. Well I don’t want to get my hopes to high here, but their New York City date at the Bowery Ballroom July 24th, is surprising close to the 90’s throwback  Summerland tour stop (7/21) at PNC Bank Arts Center in Homdel, NJ. A guy can dream right? Besides what would be the personal gain from me making up a rumor? Like I would ever do something like that to add length to a post about four new tour dates. Not the kind of guy I am. All the ticketing info can be found at TheWallflowers.Com

Wallflowers Tour Dates

June 2nd – San Francisco, CA (The Black And White Ball)

July 20th – Dover, DE (Firefly Music Festival)

July 24th – New York, NY (Bowery Ballroom)

July 25th – Asbury Park, NJ (The Stone Pony)

July 27th – Chicago, IL ( Schubas)

September 23rd – Pensacola Beach, FL ( DeLuna Fest)

Firefly Music Festival To Be Held In Delaware

Firefly Music Festival To Be Held In Delaware 

Delaware, welcome to the world of States that have sweet Music Festivals.

The news broke last night, that the three day  ’Firefly Music Festival’, will be headlined by The KillersThe Black Keys and Jack White .  Solid, right? I mean, sure The Killers aren’t in the stratosphere of musical relevance circa 2012 as the The Black Keys and Jack White are; but hey, they could have went with the Beach Boys, so we’ll chalk up those headliners as a win.

The ’2nd tier’ if you will, of headliners consists of The Flaming Lips (what AREN’T the Flaming Lips doing these days?), Death Cab For CutieJohn LegendGirl Talk and Passion Pit (cancelled as a result of mental health issues). Modest Mouse, a late edition to the festivities, announced on June 25th they’d be in Dover as well that weekend.

Dubbed the “East Coast’s Premier Music Experience”, will  kick off July 20th  at Woodlands of Dover International Speedway in Delaware and end July 22nd with 3 day passes going for a modest $178 (as of 6/28, 3-Day passes have been sold out), at the Festival’s official website. The rest of the listed acts are below.
