Manson Family: Garbage announce North American ’20 Years Queer’ tour to celebrate debut album


August 15 of this summer brings the 20th anniversary of Garbage’s 1995 self-titled debut record, an album that sold four million copies and spawned still-scorching singles like “Stupid Girl,” “Only Happy When It Rains,” “Queer,” and our personal favorite, “Vow.” After first announcing two anniversary shows slated for London and France later this year, the celebration has now expanded into a full-on North American and European tour.

And it comes to Boston’s Orpheum Theatre on October 21.

“We’ll be playing the entire record front to back for the first time ever,” says the band in a statement. “We hope all our fans will come join with us to celebrate.”

Watch a tour teaser video below, as well as the full list of tour dates, which kicks off October 6 in San Diego and concludes November 14 in Scotland.

Closer to the album’s anniversary, Garbage will also release a special 20-year edition of the record, which will be re-mastered and feature remixes and previously unreleased versions of songs from the debut. Tickets to the shows listed below will go on sale Friday, June 12; check for additional ticketing information. Torres will support on the U.S. dates and Dutch Uncles will support in Europe.
