Wednesday 13 has announced a fall 2023 U.S. headline tour to celebrate 21 years of his former band, Murderdolls.
On the “Wednesday 13 Performs Murderdolls” tour, Wednesday and his current band, which features Murderdolls alumni Roman Surman and Jack Tankersley, will perform a full set of Murderdolls songs, taken from the band’s 2002 debut album, “Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls” and its 2010 sophomore album, “Women and Children Last,” which won the Revolver Golden Gods “Comeback of the Year” award.
Wednesday 13 was the Murderdolls’ frontman and songwriter, alongside guitarist and creative partner-in-crime Joey Jordison, who died in 2021.
“After 21 years since its release, and the recent sad and premature passing of Joey, it only feels right to go out and celebrate these songs,” Wednesday said. “We made two amazing albums that I was very proud of, and unfortunately much of the world didn’t get a chance to hear the songs live. In 2018, we all got together at Joey’s house and discussed plans and possibilities for the future, but we both had other immediate plans. We will be performing tracks from both Murderdolls albums on this upcoming tour and celebrating the legacy of the band.”
“We’re really excited to do a tour that Joey would be genuinely happy to see us do,” Surman said.
The tour will begin on Oct. 20 in Los Angeles, California, and will visit a slew of major cities before ending in Colorado Springs, Colorado on Dec. 9. Support will come from Gemini Syndrome, Napalm Records labelmate Infected Rain and Black Satellite. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. EDT Friday, April 21. For more information, visit the band’s official website. VIP packages also are available.
