Waits Stuns The Summer With Us Tour Dates

Eccentric rocker TOM WAITS is set for a rare US tour, performing a string of shows in some cities where he hasn't performed for almost three decades. The reclusive DOWNTOWN TRAIN singer's most recent live date in London in 2004 sold out in 30 minutes, with over 150,000 ticket requests received within the first hour. The upcoming eight August (06) dates, which begin in Atlanta, Georgia, are sure to be among the hottest tickets of the summer because the two-time Grammy winner rarely performs live and hasn't officially toured since 1999. Quirky Waits insists there's an ulterior reason for the dates: "We need to go to Tennessee to pick up some fireworks, and someone owes me money in Kentucky." The tour includes stop-offs in Nashville, Tennessee; Detroit, Michigan; and Chicago, Illinois.
