Garbage will embark on a fall tour that celebrates the 20th anniversary of their Version 2.0. The band will perform the 1998 album in its entirety, as well as some of the Version 2.0-era B-sides, during the trek.
“Version 2:0 is, in my opinion, the quintessential Garbage record,” Shirley Manson said in a statement. “We are all very grateful to the millions of people who took it to their hearts at the time it was released and to those who continue to love on it still”.
The 17-date trek kicks off September 29th in Seattle and works its way eastward before concluding October 27th at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre. Tickets for the trek go on sale April 27th.
“Version 2.0 is the sound of a band growing up, evolving, and more than anything, gaining confidence,” drummer Butch Vig added. “When we started recording, we made a conscious decision to not re-invent ourselves, but rather take everything we learned from our debut album and filter it through the new digital technology we were grappling with. Sonically, the album has moments of razor sharp clarity and soft beauty. Indeed, it’s possibly our best album.”
Garbage will reissue their Version 2.0 on June 22nd, pairing the album with 10 B-sides from the era.
