News: THE TUBES – October tour dates

In June 2016, David Randall chatted at length to Fee Waybill about The Tubes with tracks from many of their albums.  Part 2 is also available via Mixcloud.

THE TUBES - Club Academy, Manchester, 8 October 2016

The Tubes celebrate their return to the UK with their “Mondo Pulp Tour” 7-22 October 2016.

After their successful dates in August 2015 the San Francisco legends return with an all-new show.  Says frontman Fee Waybill: “We’re thrilled to be coming back to the country that started it all for us.  I embrace my British heritage; the beer and the fish and chips and the best rock and roll fans in the world.”

The Tubes - Mondo Pulp Tour

In 1977 The Tubes toured the UK, but many of their shows were banned due to British censorship as the authorities reacted to their quasi-pornography and satiricism.

Lead singer Fee Waybill’s deranged on-stage characters included the larger-than-life fictitious platform-booted, drugged out British glam rock star Quay Lewd. In May 1978 – in his persona as punk rocker Johnny Bugger – Waybill fell off the stage at London’s Hammersmith Odeon and broke his leg resulting in cancellation of the rest of the tour.
