For the last 30 years, Greg Dulli, frontman of The Afghan Whigs and The Twilight Singers, has been the poet laureate of the bizarre whims and cruel tangents of desire. A foremost authority on the sell-your-soul rewards of carnal lust, the high voltage epiphanies of chemical enhancement, and the serotonin lows left in their wake.
Dulli released Random Desire, the first solo album under his own name, earlier this year and was due to tour in the autumn. However the COVID-19 pandemic means that these live shows will now be rescheduled to 2021. In view of this, Dulli has announced plans to stream two pre-recorded shows on the night of Saturday 1 August 2020: one timed for fans in Europe, and the other for those tuning in from North America.
“I wanted to keep everyone on the crew safe and to ensure that this special moment could happen.”
Dulli taped the two sets of material taken from his recent solo record Random Desire along with other songs from his career. The live recordings were made at Gold-Diggers in Los Angeles, and are likely to be his only live performances for 2020.
