Tickets On Sale For Hole Summer U.S. Dates

Courtney Love has big plans for this summer.  The edgy rock maven announced the first leg of a U.S. tour under the Hole moniker, marking the alternative rock band’s first full-fledged American tour in 11 years.

Hole officially broke up in 2002 after 13 years and three albums.  The band’s final show took place at Thunderbird Stadium in Vancouver, British Columbia, in July 1999.

Love then revived Hole in late 2009 as the band’s only original member despite objections from former lead guitarist and founding member Eric Erlandson.

After performing June 6 at Live 105 BFD at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif., Hole’s U.S. summer tour begins June 22 with a gig at Electric Factory in Philadelphia. Dates are booked through June 30’s show at The Tabernacle in Atlanta.

Additional shows include House of Blues Boston Presented By Foxwoods Resort Casino (June 23), Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, N.J. (June 25) and 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. (June 27).

More dates will be announced soon.
