per the official press release:
Los Angeles-based alternative rock band Dorothy has announced tour dates for the 2018 Freedom Tour. Dorothy is taking the high voltage show to major cities across the United States including Chicago, New York, Boston, Nashville, Los Angeles, Austin, and more.
Dorothy will perform new music from their forthcoming album along with other fan-favourites from their ROCKISDEAD debut album, the fresh single “Down To The Bottom,” and “Naked Eye” from the Served Like A Girl soundtrack. Rolling Stone recently featured “Down To The Bottom” in their column ‘The Playlist’ as the “perfect mix of blues thunder and alt-rock guitar crunch.”
Taking on an unprecedented interest in local culture, for the 2018 Freedom Tour, Dorothy are looking for a hometown favourite band from each city to be the opening act for every show along the way. All genres are welcome. This will be an opportunity to bring the focus of touring back to developing the local music scene.
“Touring sweeps you from city to city. Sometimes you don’t even get a chance to venture past a couple blocks of the venue you’re performing in. On this tour, we are doing something different. Instead of letting a band with marketing dollars and guaranteed ticket sales open for me, I thought it would be cool to let the local favourite band in each city have a shot,” shares Martin.
“This tour is about taking the time to truly connect with the different communities to get a taste of what the local music scene is like. We want to be inspired. This could be a disaster or it could be complete magic. Who knows? WHO CARES?! It’s rock n’ roll.”
