ALO is excited to announce their (lucky!) 13th annual Tour d’Amour. Held each year in February/March to surround Valentine’s Day, the tour is a celebration of LOVE - musically, communally, and in all of its many forms. The band is thrilled to announce some amazing openers (old friends and new), as well as a fundraising component for the victims of California’s recent wildfires. More info on the charitable component to come.
As with last year’s edition of Tour D’Amour, Dave Brogan, the band’s drummer and one of four lead vocalists, will be subbing out due to continued family obligations. Continuing to hold down the drum chair will be longtime friend and collaborator Ezra Lipp (Phil Lesh, Sean Hayes, Magic in the Other). Ezra has been behind the kit most of 2018, including shows in NYC, Denver, Boston, Philly, DC and more. ALO is excited to keep building the collaborative energy with Ezra into the new year.
Openers for this year include Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, Scott Pemberton Band and special guests Tea Leaf Green for a special Saturday Fillmore "Hometown Throwdown". As usual, The Fillmore weekend will include two evenings of music plus a Saturday "Family Matinee" show. A limited # of discounted 2 night Fillmore passes will be available. Tickets to all shows go on sale this Friday (11/30) at 10am PST. Ticket links available at www.alomusic.com/shows.
