Wolf is touring in support of his latest solo album – Midnight Souvenirs – which features performances from Merle Haggard, Shelby Lynne, and Neko Case. Earlier this month, Wolf and Lynne performed a track from the song – “Tragedy” – on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.”
Midnight Souvenirs has been getting good reviews since its release, with Wolf’s hometown paper, the Boston Globe, calling it “one of [Wolf’s] most poignant albums” while Rolling Stone described it as “delightful,” saying “Nothing can kill Wolf’s charm.”
Of course, there’s nothing like hearing the music on the concert stage performed by one of rock’s master showmen. For more information, click here for Peter Wolf’s website, here for his Facebook page and here for his MySpace hangout.
