MONSTER MAGNET has revealed details of a special live trip down memory lane. The New Jersey space rockers will perform their seminal “Dopes To Infinity” album in its entirety, as well as select “hits” from their back catalogue at two exclusive performances in Glasgow and London in November. As well as all the classic songs, fans can expect a visual treat, specially tailored towards the “Dopes…”album.
Commented mainman Dave Wyndorf: “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank [the fans] for all [their] support over the last twenty years. Speaking for myself and all the members of MONSTER MAGNET, I’d like [the fans] to know how much we enjoy performing our music live and I’m sure you would agree with me when I say that live shows are the ultimate bond between artists and fans.
“It’s in that spirit that I’m excited to tell you of our next live project: performing the album ‘Dopes To Infinity’ live in its entirety.
“When I wrote ‘Dopes’ in 1995, I envisioned a hard-rock, tripped-out journey exploring the many sounds and styles of the ‘great psychedelic era of 1968-1974.’ I carefully sequenced the album to take the listener on a ‘roller coaster ride’ of engaging words and music. I sang songs of love, hate, lust, joy and desperation
in a style I hoped would fire the listener’s imagination, bringing the everyday emotions that we all share to mythical heights. Thankfully, the fans and critics told me I succeeded. Now I’d like to bring that experience to the stage.
“‘Dopes To Infinity’: Live! In its entirety. A complete trip from beginning to end.
“I can’t wait!”
