Tim Rogers to join Alejandro Escovedo’s Band for Australian Tour

Texan guitar legend Alejandro Escovedo will have the musical expertise of You Am I’s Tim Rogers on his upcoming Australian tour.

Tim will be the second guitar player for Alejanrdo on all headline shows (except the Caravan Club) but including at the Port Fairy Festival.

Grabbing the second guitar gig in the Alejandro band means Tim has some big shoes to fill. In the U.S., Alejandro Escovedo fan Bruce Springsteen makes a habit of joining him on stage whenever he is in town.

“He has been very nice to me and very kind and generous. He is sweet enough to get up on with him,” Alejandro Escovedo tells Noise11.com. “Management would tell me “you can call him but he’s probably going to stay in”. As soon as I called him he said ‘Yeah, man I’ll come right over” and he came right over. He couldn’t wait to play. He is one of those kind of guys”.

Alejandro Escovedo has also announced two extra shows for Sydney and Brisbane.

Alejandro Escovedo will tour Australia for David Roy Williams.
