Black Flag to Erie; Stones tour to be announced Wednesday

Iconic punk band Black Flag, which broke up in 1986, has reformed with founder Greg Ginn on guitar and vocalist Ron Reyes.
Even better: The group will play Erie during its comeback tour.
Look for Black Flag, and special guest Good for You — formed by Ginn and Mike Vallely (the frontman of Revolution Mother, Mike V and the Rats, and a former skateboarder – on June 11 at the Crooked I.
Tickets are $25 advance. They will go on sale Friday at noon at blackflagerie.eventbrite.com.
Black Flag will also release a new album later in 2013.
Other former members of Black Flag, including Keith Morris (later of Circle Jerks), bassist Chuck Dukowksi, guitarist-singer Dez Cadena (a member of the Misfits the past 12 years) and drummer Bill Stevenson, are also touring in 2013. They are calling themselves Flag.
For the record, Henry Rollins isn’t part of either group.

The Rolling Stones will announce their 18-date North American tour on Wednesday according to numerous reports, including Rolling Stone. Stonesnews.com claims it has a “first draft” of tour dates. If it’s accurate, the Stones will include Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center on the tour. But that’s certainly nothing official; we won’t know for sure until tomorrow.

Space was tight for Thursday’s Showcase, so see below for on-sale dates for just-announced shows, including three area dates for the Maroon 5/Kelly Clarkson tour.
