Living Colour have announced the dates for the second U.S. leg of their
comeback tour, which will find the hard rockers playing the East
Coast and a couple of Midwest dates in early August.
Following their unannounced first gig together in nearly six years in
December (see "Living Colour Reunite Onstage At CBGB's"), Living Colour
played several sold-out club dates along the West Coast in May.
So far this summer, the "Cult of Personality" crew has also hit South
America and the European festival circuit.
The members of Living Colour, vocalist Corey Glover, guitarist Vernon Reid,
bassist Doug Wimbish and drummer Will Calhoun, have taken on various other
projects since the original demise of the group in 1995.
Currently, Glover is acting in the independent film "Reunion 81," Reid is
planning a mini-tour with jazz bassist Jack Bruce, and Calhoun and Wimbish
are performing with Mos Def in Japan, according to Living Colour's
The band is discussing recording a new album, but no specific plans have been made,
the publicist said.
Before disbanding, Living Colour released three studio albums, though none
were as popular as their 1988 debut, Vivid. "Cult of Personality,"
the album's first single, was a smash hit and garnered the group a Grammy
award for Best Hard Rock Performance.
