Wayne Kramer To Kick Out The Jams For The 50th Anniversary

Today Wayne Kramer of MC5 announced that he and some guests are going on tour in support of the 50th Anniversary of Kick Out The Jams. Pitchfork reports the “Kick Out the Jams: The 50th Anniversary Tour” will feature festival dates in Europe and some headlining dates across North America. Kramer will be joined by Kim Thayil of Soundgarden, Brendan Canty of Fugazi, Dug Pinnick of King’s X, and Marcus Durant of Zen Guerrilla.

Kramer said in a statement, ““The message of the MC5 has always been the sense of possibilities: a new music, a new politics, a new lifestyle,” Kramer said in a statement. “Today, there is a corrupt regime in power, an endless war thousands of miles away, and uncontrollable violence wracking our country. It’s becoming less and less clear if we’re talking about 1968 or 2018. I’m now compelled to share this music I created with my brothers 50 years ago. My goal is that the audience leaves these concerts fueled by the positive and unifying power of rock music.”

The only actual date we know for sure is the Fillmore Detroit show that will wrap the tour on October 27th. Tickets for the show are $25, $35, $59.50 and $75 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. Pre-sale tickets (password: ENCORE) go on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday.
