Liz Phair’s Girly Sound to Guyville North American spring tour is set to begin later this month on May 31. The summer run is coordinated with the 25th anniversary of Phair’s 1993 debut album, Exile in Guyville, and comes with the release of a box-set reissue titled Girly-Sound To Guyville. On Tuesday, Phair extended her 2018 touring plans with a lengthy batch of 25 shows now set to keep the alt-rock singer and guitarist on the road well into the fall months.
Titled, Amps on the Lawn Tour, the fall concert run begins on Sept. 6 in Atlanta and runs for about a month and a half before coming to a close on Oct. 12 in Milwaukee. The indie-rock pioneer will take her mix of guitar-friendly jams across the U.S. and Canada with highlight shows at Detroit’s Majestic Theater, Seattle’s The Showbox, Los Angeles’ Theatre at Ace Hotel and New York City’s Brooklyn Steel, just to name a few.
Phair’s career milestone’s don’t just end with the 25th birthday of Exile in Guyville on June 22. 10 years after the release of her debut studio effort, her career was launched to new heights when her self-titled LP arrived on June 24, 2003. The album would feature the hit rock single, “Why Can’t I?” which reached Gold-sales status in the U.S. and his still the highest-charting Billboard single of Phair’s career to date. The original music video for the single can be watched in all of its nostalgic glory above.
Tickets to select shows on the newly announced fall tour will be going on sale starting this Friday (May 18) at 10 a.m. local time, and can be found by clicking here.
