Fu Manchu Announce Rescheduled 30th Anniversary Tour Dates

I take it as an encouraging sign that I saw these tour dates maybe five minutes before I started putting this post together and it’s only now, some 20 minutes after that, that the possibility that they wouldn’t for some reason happen occurs to me. So yes, barring some pandemic resurgence, some mutation of COVID-19 or once-in-a-century viral infections becoming like once-in-a-century wildfires or once-in-a-century hurricanes — that’s right I fucking said it; it’s all tied together! the end is nigh assholes and we did it! — these shows will go forward. Obviously, my hope is that they do precisely that. I’m not the hugest fan of the New York venue — no photo pit, no parking, all crowd push — but a Fu gig is an awfully pleasant thought.

As discussed in my recent interview with guitarist Bob Balch (posted here), Fu Manchu are looking to get back to recording material for their 30th anniversary EP series in the next couple months. Presumably releases will happen staggered somewhere around these tour dates, as the band hits various spots in Europe and major markets along East, West and Southern US coasts. Note Freak Valley Festival in Germany. It is my sincere hope to be there.

As Balch also said in the interview, Thursday is Fu Manchu day, since they’ve practiced on Thursdays apparently forever, the last year notwithstanding. Sounds good to me. Make sure to kick out some Fu Manchu tomorrow in their honor.
