Tom Waits Atlanta show on NPR.org
Tom Waits brought his 'Glitter and Doom' Tour to Atlanta on July 5, and now we all have a second chance to hear the show. It's being hosted online at NPR.org. What NPR has to say about the show:
For his Atlanta stop, recorded at the city's historic Fox Theater on July 5, Waits delivered a stunning and epic two-and-a-half-hour performance, including songs he says he's never attempted outside of the studio before. 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," Waits says. "They are all multi-instrumentalists and they polka like real men."
