Tom Waits plays the 'Glitter and Doom' tour through Europe this summer

Following 'Glitter and Doom's 13 U.S. shows that open in Phoenix, Arizona, on Tuesday 17th June, America's legendary songwriter and performer Tom Waits brings his 'Glitter and Doom' tour to Europe this summer, playing shows that include the Grammy-award winning artist's first-ever concerts in Spain and the Czech Republic. The European schedule opens in Spain's San Sebastian on Saturday 12th July and finishes in Dublin on Saturday 1st August.

"I have a stellar band: Larry Taylor (upright bass), Patrick Warren (keyboards), Omar Torrez (guitars), Vincent Henry (woodwinds) and Casey Waits (drums and percussion)", says Waits. "They play with racecar precision and they are all true conjurers. I'm doing songs with them I've never attempted outside the studio. They are all multi-instrumentalists and they polka like real men."

The European tour will also be subject to new anti-scalper plans, thus attempting to ensure that every fan will pay only face value (plus normal service and handling fees) for the tickets. They will be limited to two per person with the purchaser's name - and name of their plus one - printed on the ticket. Ticket-holders will need photo ID corresponding to the names on the tickets to gain access to the venues.
