The Lemonheads frontman Evan Dando has locked in two New Zealand shows as part of a world tour celebrating the reissue of his aching album Baby I'm Bored. Released in 2003, the 12-track record was Dando's first solo studio LP and his first offering of new songs since The Lemonheads' 1996 album Car Button Cloth, which was followed by a lengthy hiatus by the group. The June reissue will see Baby I'm Bored being released in a two LP package complete with previously unheard tunes, b-sides and rarities. Here are the tour details...

Emerging after The Lemonheads disbanded Evan Dando returned to music first with a solo tour and ‘Live At The Brattle Theatre’ then came his debut solo album ‘Baby I’m Bored’.

Mature and autobiographical, ‘Baby I’m Bored’ is a stellar record that stripped Dando of his grunge label. 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.

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

“A beautiful album of tender reflections on life, love and drug-induced folly set in soulful, country-tinged guitar pop.” - The Independent

In support of the upcoming deluxe reissue of ‘Baby I’m Bored’ on Fire Records for Record Store Day 2017, Evan Dando will stop by New Zealand as part of his World Tour playing two shows - Saturday 3rd June, 2017 at Christchurch's Blue Smoke and to take us into Queens Birthday weekend, he plays Sunday 4th June, 2017 at the Tuning Fork in Auckland.
