The groundbreaking alternative music trio Love And Rockets, consisting of Daniel Ash, David J, and Kevin Haskins, have announced ten more dates to their highly anticipated Spring US Tour, with upcoming shows in cities such as Chicago, New York, and Atlanta and a trio of Texas gigs. Additionally, Love and Rockets are celebrating their return with a series of vinyl reissues.
After Bauhaus disbanded in 1985, Love and Rockets emerged, allowing the trio to explore their creativity and imagination further. Influencing numerous bands such as The Flaming Lips, The Dandy Warhols, A Place To Bury Strangers, Jane’s Addiction, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Beck, Maynard Keenan, Dubfire, and Pixies, Love and Rockets have left a lasting impact on the alternative music scene. Their last full tour occurred in 1999, with some select concerts and festival dates in 2007 and 2008. After a long wait, Love and Rockets are finally returning to the stage and to vinyl.
In 2023, a limited edition box set containing their six Beggars Banquet albums on colored vinyl was released and quickly sold out. Love and Rockets have also announced their first show in 15 years at Cruel World Festival in Pasadena. The reissuing of their six Beggars albums continues, with vinyl reissues of Seventh Dream Of Teenage Heaven and Express released on January 13th.
On April 28th, two more reissues from their catalog will be released, with more in the series to be announced soon. You can find the previously released reissues HERE.
