via press release:
On the weekend of the 25th-27th May 2012 at Alexandra Palace, London, All Tomorrow’s Parties present the second UKÂ I’ll Be Your MirrorÂ event. Tickets are on sale now viaÂ ATPFestival.com. This morningÂ ATP announced a very special new headliner as well as more line-up additions…
On Sunday 27th May 2012 Alexandra Palace will host the first show in 13 years from Cincinnati’s rock legendsÂ THEÂ AFGHANÂ WHIGS. Formed in 1986, the bands career from then until 2001 saw them release six acclaimed albums highlighted by the classicÂ GentlemenÂ LP in 1993. Fusing classic rock with grunge-era distortion and a heavy soul influence,Â AfghanÂ Whigs were one of the most renowned live bands of their time and this long awaited reformation will no doubt be a very special event.
ATP are also pleased to confirm their return to Asbury Park, New Jersey USA where they will follow last year’s debut in that city with a 2012 I’ll Be Your Mirror event, the Saturday night of which will be headlined by TheÂ AfghanÂ Whigs and curated by the Whigs’ frontman Greg Dulli. Tickets & accommodation for the three day event running September 21st-23rd will go on sale in early January 2012 when the start of the fantastic line-up will also be announced – fans can sign up now to receive info about a pre-sale here.
