Evan Dando, everyone's favorite unreliable drifter drug buddy, is set to play his first UK shows for four years next month. The former Lemonhead last appeared at Reading in 1997 before he decided to take a two-year break from music to doÖwellÖnothing. The dates will showcase new material, which Dando has been working on since 1999 with Ben Lee, long-term cohort Tom Morgan and Royston Langdon of Spacehog. Dando is expected to be joined onstage by Ben Lee and former Radish singer Ben Kweller. Look for him stateside later this year, or maybe not, who the hell knows?
The UK dates are:
14 February Dublin, Whelans
15 February Dublin, Whelans
17 February Edinburgh, Wilkie House
18 February Glasgow, King Tutís
19 February Manchester University
20 February London, Dingwalls
