New Escovedo Tour Dates Announced


Returning to the road
after a month’s respite due to exhaustion.

By Fred Mills


Alejandro Escovedo just announced the next leg of his Real Animal tour, which will include
playing Harley-Davidson’s 105th Anniversary Celebration in Milwaukee on August 30 at the Roadhouse. Also
on the bill: some guy called Bruce Springsteen, with whom Al previously teamed
up onstage this past April for a version of Real
’s “Always A Friend.”


Escovedo had to cancel a number of earlier dates when
exhaustion forced him temporarily off the road (he had to drop a high-profile Letterman
appearance as a result), but he’ll be back in the saddle starting  Aug. 28 when he does a benefit for the Austin
Child Guidance Center at Antone’s in Austin. Also on that bill: The Reivers
(who reunited in February), and Ian McLagan & the Bump Band.


You can check out our exclusive Escovedo feature in which
Al, his pal Chuck Prophet and legendary producer Tony Visconti hold forth on Real Animal. We’ve also got a live
review of Escovedo
from his July 15 concert in Asheville.
