Good Riddance reunion shows this summer?
According to some sources around Fat Wreck Chords Good Riddance will be reuniting this summer for a European tour from August 1 -26. The band played their final shows in 2007
“They’re doing an European reunion tour.
Mostly festivals, fingers crossed for clubshows.
No dates yet, but probably Reading / Leeds / Resurection Fest”
This site says the band is scheduled to appear at Pukkelpop in Belgium as well.
When I interviewed GR-frontman Russ Rankin in 2008 he had this to say about a possible reunion:
I don’t think we should do it. Our music belongs to a certain period of time. It would be naïve and stupid to think otherwise. Of course there will always be people willing to see Good Riddance play, but I don’t see it happening.
Back to news overview
Great studio band, live a bit of a bummer.
Still funny that bands keep saying they won’t do reunions, if they would just leave the options open, it wouldn’t be so bad if they DO reunite eventually!
A source as close as possible to the band without being a band member told me that a reunion still was a no-go for Russ last month. So I guess this rumor ain’t true.
