FINALLY. Anti Records has announced that Tom Waits will hold a press conference Monday, May 5th, at 9am where he will reportedly announce a 2008 tour titled "Glitter and Doom". The press conference will be viewable at tomwaits.com, his long-dormant site that’s set to launch Monday.
If you’re a Waits fanatic like myself, you’ve been scouring, digging, cursing and throwing fits trying to find details on the tour rumor ever since that evil magazine Rolling Stone three months ago printed a blurb that a tour was being planned. David Fricke is a jerk.
I’m already packing my survival kit for ticket camping out. Maybe I should buy a pistol. At the very least I’ll need to sharpen a stick at both ends. . .
[This is James’ post, btw — although I, too, dig Tom. Oh, and P-Dork says the show is on. -ED]
