Can you let me know when The Tubes will be playing in [City/State/Country]? [top]
Yes! We'd be happy to send you emails when new shows are confirmed, and when there's Tubes News to report. Our email distribution list is worldwide, so you'll get information about all Tubes happenings. To subscribe, submit your email address here.
I've heard about or seen a show advertised, but you don't have it listed on your web site. Why not? [top]
We only post confirmed shows on the Upcoming Shows page, and we get our information from The Tubes Management. If you hear of a show that we don't have listed, it's because The Tubes Management does not consider the show confirmed.
It is quite possible that the gig will eventually be confirmed, but it is also possible that the show will not be confirmed and the band will not perform at that advertised event.
Where can I buy tickets to an upcoming Tubes show? [top]
When a show is posted on the web site, we include the information that's available at that time, i.e. web site URL, venue address, phone number, ticket purchase info, etc.. In many cases, more event information becomes available after a show has been posted, and then the Upcoming Shows page is updated. So, if a show has been announced and you don't see the information that you need, check back for updates or contact the venue directly.
Information about the release "Now" can be found on the Discography.
Is the song "Gonna Get It Next Time" available on CD? [top]
We've heard that it's on the "Premium Gold" compilation CD, but we haven't been able to get a copy of the CD to verify.
Is the song "Rock and Roll Hospital" available on CD? [top]
"Rock and Roll Hospital" is not available on CD. That song is on a double-LP bootleg/promo called "The Tubes in Rock & Roll Hospital". We've seen 2 versions, one pressed on black vinyl and the other on bloodwax vinyl. Where can you find the booleg? Sorry, we can't help you with that one.
