Seattle, WA – For the first time in his career, Greg Dulli will embark on a solo tour which will see him make stops in five different countries for a total of 29 shows. Beginning in New Orleans on October 8th, ‘An Evening With Greg Dulli’ will feature Greg along with long-time Twilight Singers guitarist Dave Rosser and multi-instrumentalist Rick Nelson (Polyphonic Spree) performing a stripped down set.  Dulli will lead his band through a wide selection of songs encompassing his entire career.  ‘An Evening With Greg Dulli’ will be a limited run tour with only fourteen US shows along with stops in Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Belgium.  Dates and on sale information provided below.

These shows will also mark the debut of several brand new songs from the forthcoming Twilight Singers album scheduled for release on Sub Pop Records in early 2011. The new Twilight Singers album will be the first release from the group in five years. More details on the new album will be announced later this year.

Greg Dulli began his musical career as the frontman and guitarist for the pioneering band The Afghan Whigs in 1987. The band was praised by critics and fans alike, releasing six studio albums before disbanding in the late 90’s. Dulli went on to form The Twilight Singers, known for their indie, soul and electronic sound.  The Twilight Singers have released four albums including the critically lauded Blackberry Belle & Powder Burns (One Little Indian) in 2003 & 2006 respectively.  In 2008, Dulli collaborated with close friend Mark Lanegan to form The Gutter Twins. Their debut release, Saturnalia (Sub Pop), was chosen by SPIN as one of the top albums of 2008.

Tickets for all shows will go on sale later this week.  Check for the most up to date information on where to purchase tickets.
