Robert Pollard Confirms Guided by Voices Tour

    Last week, Matador Records announced that the “classic 93-96 lineup” of Guided by Voices would be playing their spectacular-looking 21st birthday blowout in Vegas. Soon after, we learned just who comprised that classic lineup, and now, perhaps feeding off the buzz this thing has generated, Robert Pollard has confirmed that this incarnation of the band will be hitting the road after their Matador gig. The rationale behind bringing Guided by Voices’ notoriously raucous live show back to the stage? “We’re old, but we’re not completely feeble yet,” Pollard told the Dayton Daily News. “We can still do it a little bit, so we better do this before that happens.” Hopefully old age won’t slow down Pollard’s storied prolificacy–it’d be a shame to see only one solo album a year.
