Here’s some good news and here’s some bad news.
This March, Buffalo Tom will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Let Me Come Over, and will be doing so by playing the 1992 album live in its entirety. That’s the good news. The bad is that, as of this publication date, there are only three gigs scheduled, and you’ll have to hop over the Atlantic Ocean to catch them: June 6 at Brussels’ Ancienne Belgique, June 8 at Amsterdam Paradiso, and June 9 Islington Assembly Hall in London.
“Three shows to announce,” the Boston band writes on Facebook. “We will be playing two sets. No supporting bands. One set will be Let Me Come Over for the 25th anniversary. The other set will be all kinds of stuff. There might be another show or two announced during this same run. Thanks for asking, but there will not be much more touring, unfortunately. We will always announce shows as they are booked. We try not to keep them secret, ha.”
Maybe, just maybe, they’ll shake out Let Me Come Over — which spawned classics like “Taillights Fade” and “Darl” — for local audiences sometime next summer. Or maybe they’ll (finally) get some hometown love at Boston Calling. We’ll see.
In other Buffalo Tom news, the trio launched a Pledge campaign for their next album, the follow-up to 2011’s very excellent Skins. Get the info via the link, and get reacquainted with Let Me Come Over via some YouTube clips below.
