“Efforts to confine our beloved enigma to the Southwestern United States have been thwarted," said Keenan. "We are compelled beyond all reason to bring the noise Eastward and share our special sauce. Although authorities suggest you be prepared for any and all possibilities, we simply suggest you arrive happy and hungry.”
For the most part, the tour includes two nights in each city but Keenan has promised that cities with two gigs will each be two entirely different shows featuring music, comedy and performances.
The tour kicks off with two shows March 2-3 at CW Center Stage in Atlanta and wraps up April 2-3 with two shows at Pantages Theater in Minneapolis.
Additional dates include Lincoln Center in Washington, D.C. (March 5-6), Apollo Theater in New York (March 13), Queen Elizabeth Theater in Toronto (March 19-20), Vic Theater in Chicago (March 26-27) and Roberts Orpheum Theater in St. Louis (March 30).
Tickets will go on sale in early 2010. Visit Puscifer.com for details.
