With Thanksgiving weekend in the rearview, ALO is excited to announce the acts who will be joining them on the road for their 12th annual Tour d’Amour. Held each year in February and March, to surround Valentine’s Day, the tour is a celebration of love in all of its forms. John Craigie will open most shows, including the Friday at the Fillmore. Monophonics will join ALO for Seattle and Portland, and TAUK will help close out the tour, and Fillmore weekend on the Saturday night in San Francisco.
"I’m very excited to have John Cragie out for most of our TDA run. I love his writing and storytelling and we’ve been texting regularly about some fun ideas for the tour. Likewise, TAUK and Monophonics are two of my favorite bands out on the road these days, and I’m looking forward to the possibility of collaborating." - Zach
"I recently guested with TAUK at Cervantes in Denver, CO and we had such a ball together! These guys are fantastic players, and they definitely bring the party with them! We couldn't be more thrilled to have them join us for our tour closer at The Fillmore in San Francisco! And Monophonics is a band we've known and loved for a while! We both hail from the Bay Area, so our orbits have crossed many a time, but we've never gotten to do any touring together. We're fired up that we finally get to pair up for a run of shows as we bring the Cali vibe up to the Pac NW!" - Lebo
The celebration in 2018 will be as epic as ever, with one modification. As previously announced, Dave Brogan, the band’s drummer, and one of four lead vocalists, is unable to join the band on this year’s Tour d’Amour due to family obligations. Instead, holding down the drum chair, will be longtime ALO friend and collaborator Ezra Lipp (Phil Lesh, Sean Hayes, Magic in the Other).
The Fillmore weekend will include two evenings of music, plus a Saturday family Matinee show.
Tickets to all shows are now on sale, except Chico which will go on sale in January.
