Exciting New X News
Before joining Pearl Jam on the road, X will celebrate the 31st anniversary of its debut album, Los Angeles, with a U.S. tour featuring the 1980 album performed in its entirety. Select shows will feature a screening of the band’s 1986 rockumentary, “X: The Unheard Music.” Fans can count on seeing the original X lineup on stage including John Doe, Exene, Billy Zoom and D.J.

The U.S. tour begins with an appearance at Riot Fest Sept. 24 in Philadelphia at Festival Pier with dates scheduled through X’s Oct. 29 spot at Voodoo Experience at New Orleans City Park.
