The Afghan Whigs

Greg Dulli’s revered band Afghan Whigs reformed last year to appease the masses of fans that they gradually accrued over the ‘90s and since, despite never breaking the mainstream.

The cult band were announced for Splendour In The Grass to the joy of a small but vocal crowd, and now Melburnians and Sydney-siders can get a taste of the brooding, sexy soul n’ roll live.

Tickets for the sideshows go on sale 9am this Friday 4 May.

The Afghan Whigs Sideshows 2012
