Dope has announced the dates for their U.S. reunion tour including Saturday, October 29 at City National Grove of Anaheim, which will feature the classic Dope lineup of Edsel Dope, Acey Slade, Virus, & Racci Shay. This U.S. leg of the tour was successfully crowdfunded by the pre-order of the band's first ever live album on www.dopereunion.com.
Dope has put together some awesome, exclusive merch packages for the campaign, and everyone who participates will be recognized by having their name featured in the liner notes.
"We are all really excited about this tour!" says Edsel Dope. "It's been a long time since Dope has done a full USA tour….The fact that we are able to do this with the lineup makes it that much sweeter and more fun for all involved. We are gonna play the longest sets of the band's career…20 plus song sets every night. Several songs from each of our 6 albums, including brand new tracks from the upcoming studio album Blood Money. Which is due out later this year via E1 Entertainment…"
In addition to the live album, the band plans to film the entire tour, with the intention of creating Dope's first ever "Live DVD." The DVD will also include tons of classic backstage footage, unreleased music videos, as well as various, never before seen clips spanning the bands entire career.
"If you are a fan of the band Dope, this is one that you don't way to miss… Who knows when the 4 of us will all be able to do this together again…"
"In addition, we have selected a sick band for our direct support slot." Due to contractual reasons, support for the Reunion tour will be announced at a later date...” Edsel Dope assures fans that they will be very happy with the tour package; it's a pairing that Edsel says is "long overdue.”
"These will be the only USA DOPE shows of 2016...”
