    It's been awhile since we've seen or heard from Greg Dulli and his Afghan Whigs. At least in the live sense.

    On tour in support of their album 1965, The Afghan Whigs rolled into New York City on Sept. 29, 1999 for a private show at the club Hush. No one knew it at the time, but it turned out to be the band’s last show ever, until now…

    The Afghan Whigs will come full circle and make their return to the stage back here in New York on May 23 at the Bowery Ballroom. Very special guest Joseph Arthur will open the show. Tickets will go on sale tomorrow, May 11, at noon. The Afghan Whigs have now announced 27 worldwide shows to date for 2012 including performances at Lollapalooza, ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror (London & NJ), Primavera Sound (Barcelona & Portugal) among numerous others.
