Bob Mould announces Distortion and Blue Hearts! tour

Legendary musician Bob Mould announces his “Distortion and Blue Hearts!” two-part tour starting September 16, 2021, in Boston at The Paradise. For the first three weeks, Bob will be joined by Jason Narducy on bass and drummer Jon Wurster. Beginning October 15 in Bloomington, IL, Mould will perform “Solo Distortion” electric shows (full run of dates and locations below).

Mould’s live shows will span his entire career of 40+ years to include songs from his recent Distortion career retrospective collection, his landmark band Hüsker Dü, and last year’s explosive and critically acclaimed album Blue Hearts—about which Rolling Stone’s 4 out of 5 star review raved, “Feels like a lost Hüsker Dü album with Mould howling invective over his buzzsawing guitar.”

Mould says:

It’s been a year and a half away from the stage. I’ve missed the noise, the sweat, and seeing your smiling faces. I’m fully vaccinated, and I hope you are too, because this fall will be a punk rock party with the band—and the solo shows will be loud and proud as well. It’s time to make up lost time, reconnect, and celebrate together with live music!
