John Doe Summer Tour Dates


John Doe has confirmed a string of tour dates for early summer. An all-star cast has been assembled for this run of dates that includesJohn’s right-hand woman Cindy Wasserman on vocals, Jesse Dayton on guitar, Chris Rhoades on bass, and Brady Blade on drums. These dates come on the heels of the release of The Best of John Doe: This Far, in May via Yep Roc Records.

The Best of John Doe: This Far is a compilation curated by Doe himself that guides listeners through the acclaimed songwriter’s solo catalog, encompassing nearly a quarter century. Doe says of the album, “I wanted to convey the idea of the best: this far. This is not ‘I’m done, I’m over, this is the best I’m ever gonna do.’ This is more like a celebration of the not-so-distant past.”

John Doe is a founding member of the seminal L.A. punk rock outfit X and the country spin-off band The Knitters. Doe’s solo career began with 1990’s Meet John Doe, followed by Kissingsohard (1995), For the Rest of Us (1998), Freedom Is… (2000),Dim Stars Bright Sky (2002), Forever Hasn’t Happened Yet (2005), For the Best of Us(extended version in 2006), A Year in the Wilderness (2007), Country Club (a collaboration with The Sadies in 2009), A Day at the Pass (a collaboration with Jill Sobule in 2011) and, most recently, Keeper (2011). Throughout his career he has garnered worldwide acclaim. The Los Angeles Times says of his work “Doe beautifully balances a rocker’s heart and a poet’s soul,” while American Songwriter praises, “…a winning platter of ‘60s inspired rock with a singer-songwriter twist.”
