2016 marks the 30th anniversary of the release of the Smithereens’ debut album “Especially For You” and they’ll be celebrating the landmark by performing the entire album from beginning to end accompanied by special film about the band.
The film reflects the personal history of the band, the making of the album as well as the ’80’s and will be shown onstage during the performance of “Especially For You”. The set will be followed by deep album tracks as well as greatest hits, and maybe even a new track from the new studio album (scheduled for a 2016 release). Keyboardist Andy Burton, will be joining for a portion of the set. Look for the Smithereens 2016 tour coming to a town near you!
