X will be celebrating 40 years together when they launch their 2017 tour this year.
The original lineup, including John Doe, Exene Cervenka, Billy Zoom, and D.J. Bonebrake, will hit the road this spring for a series of dates commemorating their time together. They kick things off on May 1st in Albuquerque, New Mexico and wrap them up on May 25th in Dallas, Texas. More dates are promised soon.
“For a long time interviewers and X people we’ve met have asked us did you think when X started you’d still be playing together now?” Cervenka said in a prepared statement. “And our answer is surprisingly – No! Of course not! In 1976 I was 20; now I’m 60. How’s that for weird?!”
