Evan Dando Brings Baby I'm Bored Tour to NZ this June

Former Lemonheads frontman, Evan Dando, steps back to the limelight to bring his 'Baby I'm Bored' tour to Christchurch and Auckland next month.

‘Baby I’m Bored’ is a stellar record that stripped Dando of his grunge label even claiming it to be mature and autobiographical. At the time of recording, he was without the band which saw him lean more towards an achingly melodic alt-country rock sound. Self-deprecating, these are songs of decline and coming back from that.

The upcoming deluxe reissue of ‘Baby I’m Bored’ on Fire Records via Southbound in NZ) for Record Store Day 2017, will be released as a deluxe two-platter vinyl set - the second disc being unheard unreleased tracks, singles, b-sides and rarities. You can listen to two tracks from the bonus disc, an alternate version of “Shots is Fire” featuring Liv Tyler and an alternate version of Rancho Santa Fe and check out the full reissue tracklist, below.

"The songs on Baby I’m Bored show an artist venturing deeper into himself than ever before to produce some of his most magnetic, vulnerable work. Once the needle hits the record, it’s hard to imagine any committed listener turning away." - Paste Magazine

“Dando has a flair for bruised melancholy that stands comparison with Gram Parsons and Alex Chilton” - Q Magazine
