Alt country band Old 97's will launch a tour celebrating the 15th Anniversary of Too Far to Care on Aug. 24 in the band's hometown of Dallas, Texas. Has it really been 15 years?
Legendary for their blistering live performances, the band will play the album in its entirety with an additional set of fan favorites.
Released in 1997 via Elektra Records, their major label debut catapulted the band onto the national scene. The album was followed by six applauded studio efforts, most recently the critically acclaimed The Grand Theatre, Vol. 1 and The Grand Theatre, Vol. 2 in 2010 and 2011 (New West Records). An additional solo set will be performed by Old 97's frontman, Rhett Miller, who recently released his acclaimed fifth solo album, The Dreamer, on each date.
Rhett Miller stated, "Too Far to Care was a magical moment for the 97's. Starry-eyed and flush with confidence thanks to our brand-new deal with Elektra, we felt no fear, just giddy excitement. An adventurous producer and a world champion A&R guy shepherded us through the recording process. And when it was all over, we had captured our little bit of lightning in a bottle. I love Too Far to Care and can't wait to play it in its entirety across the USA."
More good news to fans who love Too Far to Care like Miller does. Omnivore Recordings will release special, 15th Anniversary Editions of Too Far to Care across various configurations (LP/CD/Digital) this fall. It will be the first time the album is available on vinyl. Details about these special anniversary editions will be announced soon.
