This show is SOLD OUT! The legendary and highly influential rock group, who’s debut album, Marquee Moon, has been cited by many as one of the greatest albums of rock music, will make their first and only South Eastern US appearance this year at the Georgia Theatre in Athens on November 7th. The band is playing only 3 US shows including Fun, Fun, Fun Fest and a handful of shows outside of the US including the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in the UK and the ATP Release The Bats festival in Australia. The band is often associated with the New York rock scene that included the Ramones, Talking Heads, the Patti Smith Group and Blondie. The band’s break up in 1978 and subsequent reformation in 1992 has left fans with only a few occasions to catch them live. This will be the first time that the line up of Tom Verlaine, Billy Ficca, Fred Smith and Jimmy Rip has played a show in the US since a Central Park show in NYC in 2007.
