Band Announce United States Leg of


20 Years Queer Tour 



LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 8, 2015 - Twenty years after the release of their self-titled debut album, GARBAGE will celebrate their lauded career with a US Anniversary tour. Christened the 20 Years Queer Tour, the band will play their debut album in its entirety for the first time. A full list of dates can be found below.

Garbage was born out of such unusual elements and unusual circumstances, and we were shocked when the first record became such a success. We're just as surprised to be here now, intact, so many years later, enthusiastically preparing to get back on the road with that album and all its attendant b-sides and lord knows what else. A big piece of our lives remains caught up in the making of that record, and we know it holds a special place for the fans that have kept us going for so long. We can't wait. This tour is going to be a blast. -STEVE MARKER

Garbage released their genre defying, groundbreaking debut on August 15, 1995 at a time when grunge music dominated the airwaves and mainstream culture. Their distinctive approach to songwriting and production, blending elements of rock, pop and electronic music, captured the attention of critics and fans all over the world. The album spawned multiple hits including: Vow, Queer, Stupid Girl and Only Happy When It Rains. It spent more than a year on both the US and UK charts, received multi-platinum certifications around the world and was nominated for three Grammy awards including Best New Artist and Best Rock Song (Stupid Girl). The album went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide.

Later this summer, Garbage will release a special 20th Anniversary edition of the album that will be re-mastered and feature all of the remixes and previously unreleased versions of songs from their debut.

Garbage will offer VIP experience packages for the US tour through Adventures in Wonderland. Offers will include premium seating, sound check access, meet and greets, soundboard viewing, and exclusive merch.

Tickets will go on-sale Friday, June 12. Check Garbage.com for additional ticketing information. Torres will support on their US dates and Dutch Uncles will support in Europe.
