Spin Doctors announce London Garage concert with special guests Dodgy

Following this week’s UK release of their critically acclaimed new studio album If the River Was Whiskey, the legendary Spin Doctors return to London on Wednesday 25th September  to perform a rare concert at The Garage in Islington. Special guest is Dodgy.

A 24 hour ticket presale will start at 9am on Thursday 9th May from Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday 10th May.

Spin Doctors, best known for their multi-million-selling album Pocket Full Of Kryptonite, and hit singles Two Princes and Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong, have come full circle by releasing a seminal blues rock album which harks back to the late eighties when they used to play the blues circuit in New York City. The original line-up features Chris Barron (vocals), Aaron Comess (drums), Eric Schenkman (guitar) and Mark White (bass).

"When we first started we were four guys in our twenties," remembers Aaron Comess. "The blues was such a big part of our roots. One of the reasons we came up with such a big catalogue of blues songs back then is that we’d play these downtown blues bars in New York. We were supposed to perform blues covers, but we actually wrote and performed our own blues songs.

If The River Was Whiskey hits rewind. It’s the deep-blues album the Spin Doctors almost made before mega stardom came knocking. It finally bottles those near-mythical songs from that sweatbox circuit. It’s a homage to the band’s lost past and the freshest record you’ll hear all year. "Every note feels dangerous," says Chris Barron.
