Tom Waits announces tour

    No, your eyes didnt deceive you, Tom Waits has just announced plans for a blink-and-youll-miss-it tour of the South and Midwest. Before you start complaining about the lack of dates, or their geographic bias, just remember that this is Tom Waits. He doesnt have to tour. He doesnt have to do anything, much less come to your hometown and entertain you.


    Waits gave the following reasons for embarking on the tour: “We need to go to Tennessee to pick up some fireworks, and someone owes me money in Kentucky.” Sounds good to me.
