Well, I guess you can say the local boys have definitely made it..They got superstar rock photographer Danny Clinch (see below...that's effin' big time folks) doing their promo shots and now they're headlining their first full arena tour in the U.S.
Their debut arena tour includes a March 20 date at Quicken Loans Arena, the second to last date on the opening leg of the tour and Pat Carney told me a few days ago that they've rehearsed six songs from the new record and by the time they get to Cleveland they should be firing on all cylinders, so expect some groovy live-only variations on all the El Camino songs you'll have internalized by then.
Oh yeah, Dan and Pat were also nominated for a Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for the song "Dearest" from Rave On Buddy Holly.
Tickets go onsale on Friday December 9 at 10 a.m. and are $59.50, $44.50, and $34.50 and includes a $3.00 facility fee (I think that means you get to use the bathrooms).
EL Camino is a damn good record, by the way.
