Galactic on tour

Exciting news for Galactic fans. The band's kicking off a headlining tour starting this week in Georgia continuing on into November and ending at the House of Blues in Hollywood. Accompanying them on the tour will be the Crown City Rockers., two unnamed special guests (perhaps collaborators from the last album?), and a horn section (Shamarr Allen and Corey Henry)!

It will be interesting to see/hear what they do with their last album's material (From the Corner to the Block), an album that marks a departure from their previous sound and has divided some fans over their new direction. Dates are listed below.

Galactic - Space Headz March (live) : Live From Bonnaroo 2003

Galactic - Second And Dryades (Featuring Big Chief Monk Boudreaux) : From The Corner To The Block

Galactic & Z-Trip - Custard Pie (Live Led Zeppelin cover) : ZED TRIPPLEN : Live in New Orleans

Crown City Rockers - B-Boy Remix (feat. Chali 2na (Jurassic 5), Planet Asia, Zion I, The Grouch, & Mystic) : B-Boy Remix 12"
