Posies Add Dates to 30th Anniversary Tour in US

From Ken:

Jon & I will do a run of duo shows in the US in Jan./Feb. to start the celebrations of our 30th year as a band. This will be followed by DELUXE REISSUES of our classic 90s albums via OMNIVORE … and then we are planning to hit the road later in the year with Mike Musburger & Dave Fox to play as the ‘Frosting’ era Posies. I’m sure you’ll see other Posies alumni here and there as well, no one is going to be left out of the party.

SO, tix on all these shows are limited. We will be doing material from *four* different decades in these shows. Good grief! Special guests…. mayhem… harmonies…
