It is with a heavy heart that The Afghan Whigs are announcing two special performances of their classic album Black Love in its entirety in New Orleans and Los Angeles along with performances from Mark Lanegan, Ani DiFranco, Morning 40 Federation, King James & The Special Men C.C. Adcock & The Lafayette Marquis, Moby and Carina Round.
Long-time The Afghan Whigs, The Gutter Twins and The Twilight Singers guitarist Dave Rosser was recently diagnosed with inoperable colon cancer.
“Dave Rosser has been my close friend and bandmate for over a decade now,” Greg Dulli commented. “By doing these shows for him we hope to ease any financial stress he may face as he pursues treatment to combat his illness. 100% of the proceeds from these shows will go to his medical care. I’m hopeful that folks will come out and show their support for Dave who will be performing with us.”
The New Orleans show will take place at The Civic Theatre on Saturday December 10th and feature performances from: The Afghan Whigs, Mark Lanegan, Ani DiFranco, Morning 40 Federation, King James & The Special Men, and C.C. Adcock & The Lafayette Marquis along with special guests.
The Los Angeles show will take place on December 14th at The Teragram Ballroom featuring sets from: The Afghan Whigs, Mark Lanegan, Moby and Carina Round.
Tickets for both shows will go on sale this Friday November 4th.
