AFI bringing 'The Blood Tour' to South Side Music Hall in Dallas in 2017

AFI have a huge year coming up in 2017. The band is releasing their 10th album, The Blood Album, on Jan. 20, 2017, and then they are heading out on tour the day that album is released. Loudwire reported that AFI will be hitting Dallas on that tour, with a stop at the South Side Music Hall on Feb. 15. Tickets go on sale on Friday, Dec. 9 at 9 a.m. PT.

There is also a chance to get a free digital download of The Blood Album in select markets with the price of an AFI concert ticket. In an interview with the Alt Press, guitarist Jade Puget called the 10th album a milestone for the band, saying it was a long time in the making.

“It’s big for us because we don’t put out a record every year,” Puget said, “so it’s taken a long time to get to this point.”

The AFI Dallas concert comes late in the tour, which kicks off in Los Angeles at the Troubadour on Jan. 20. There will be three Texas stops on the tour, with AFI hitting Houston first on Feb. 13, before moving on to Austin on Valentine’s Day and then Dallas on Dec. 15. After that, there are only four more shows, with the last two both in San Diego. The Souvenirs open for all the concerts. Chain Gang of 1974 will open the first 10 shows and then Nothing will take over after that, including the Dallas show.

Tickets for the AFI Dallas concert go on sale on Dec. 9 through AXS. The concert will take place on Feb. 15, 2017, at the South Side Music Hall in Dallas with Nothing and Souvenirs as the opening acts. Prices for the AFI concert start out at just $25.
