Royal Oak Music Theatre, Royal Oak, Mich.

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of its Version 2.0 album, Garbage has locked in one-month tour of the U.S. beginning in late September.

The Pacific Northwest will be the starting grounds with Garbage launching the trek at Seattle’s Showbox SoDo Sept. 29.  Last stop on the adventure is Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, Oct. 27.
Garbage will play the Version 2.0 album from start to finish with each night’s setlist also containing b-sides from the L.P.’s reissue landing in stores June 22 via Stunvolume/PIAS.  
With songs like “Push It,” “I Think I’m Paranoid” and “Special,” the album proved to be a top-seller and was certified Platinum by the RIAA.
”Version 2.0 is the sound of a band growing up, evolving, and more than anything, gaining confidence,” said Garbage co-founder / drummer Butch Vig. “When we started recording, we made a conscious decision to not re-invent ourselves, but rather take everything we learned from our debut album and filter it through the new digital technology we were grappling with. Sonically, the album has moments of razor sharp clarity and soft beauty. Indeed, it’s possibly our best album.”
The band is still a box-office dynamo.  Data submitted to Pollstar for Garbage’s 2017 tour includes several sold-out shows as well as near-capacity crowds.  Appearing July 21 at the Mystic Showroom, Garbage sold all 1,835 tickets and grossed $154,023.
Tickets go on sale April 27 at 10 a.m. local time.  Keep checking Pollstar’s Garbage page for updates.
