Tom Waits Preps Glitter & Doom Live LP
The baker’s dozen of dates on Tom Waits’ Glitter & Doom tour didn’t include much love for the left and right coasts, but thankfully we’re all getting a taste of what went down — that is, aside from the usual shaky YouTube bootlegs. Photographer Michael T. Regan has leaked the news that Waits is preparing to release Tom Waits: Glitter & Doom Live on 12” vinyl and likely other formats.
Regan got the scoop on the upcoming Waits live album because five of his photos have been tapped by Waits’ label, Anti, to be included in the project. This isn’t Waits’ first live release (not to mention his VH1 Storytellers, of which I just found a bootleg at Captains Dead), but it is the first live album with Waits’ son Casey playing the drums.
No release date or other deets have surfaced, but we’ll pass them along as soon as we hear. In the meantime, check out Waits’ spoof press conference announcement for the Glitter & Doom tour below.
