The Afghan Whigs and The Church Announce Co-Headlining Tour

The Afghan Whigs and The Church are joining forces for a North American co-headlining tour this summer.

The veteran rock bands will hit the road together for an 18-date jaunt beginning on June 18th in Glenside, PA. The tour’s itinerary also includes shows in Brooklyn, Boston, Washington, DC, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, Denver, Portland, San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, and beyond. Kristin Hersh of Throwing Muses will appear as a special guest at the Brooklyn show, while Ed Harcourt will appear at all dates except Brooklyn and Milwaukee.

An artist ticket pre-sale begins Tuesday, February 6th at 1:00 p.m. local time (use access code CHURCHWINGS). A public on-sale follows on Friday, February 9th via Ticketmaster.

In a statement, The Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli shared a personal anecdote about his longtime fandom of The Church. “I was an 18-year-old college freshman laying in bed listening to WVXU late one night when I heard a song that I described later as sounding like David Bowie fronting The Byrds. Thankfully they back announced ‘The Unguarded Moment’ by The Church and I was on my way to buying my first import. Soon after I bought two more after learning of The Blurred Crusade and Seance. It was official. I loved The Church. Three years later, the four kids who were about to become The Afghan Whigs played ‘One Day’ by The Church in John Curley’s living room and we were off and running…”

The Afghan Whigs released their most recent album, How Do You Burn?, in 2022. The Church dropped their first full-length in six years, The Hypnogogue, in 2023.
