Tom Waits - Glitter and Doom Tour
As the Glitter and Doom Tour draws to a close in Dublin this weekend, those kind people over at NPRhave managed to finally harness the power of the interweb for good, and recorded the 2 and a half hour show at Atlanta’s historic Fox Theater on July 5 and made it available for all.
The set contains tracks that Waits hasn’t tried out of the studio, including “Hoist that Rag”, “Anywhere I Lay My Head” and triplejaysus favourite “All the World Is Green”. Backing Waits is a five-piece group featuring Seth Ford-Young (upright bass), Patrick Warren (keyboards), Omar Torrez (guitars), Vincent Henry (woodwinds) and Casey Waits (drums and percussion).
“They play with racecar precision and they are all true conjurers,” says Waits. “They are all multi-instrumentalists and they polka like real men.”
