Just Announced: SQUIRREL NUT ZIPPERS 25th Anniversary Tour in Phoenix & Tucson – March 2020

Just announced!


The inimitable SQUIRREL NUT ZIPPERS head out on their “Inevitable 25th Anniversary Tour” in early 2020! They’re performing live in Phoenix on March 24th at Crescent Ballroom, and in Tucson on March 25th at Rialto Theatre.



 

We all saw it coming, didn’t we? I guess it was truly “inevitable” in every sense of the word. The Squirrel Nut Zippers will kick off 2020 with a run of dates for their contractually obligated “The Inevitable 25th Anniversary Shows.”
 
Band leader Jimbo Mathus had this to say about the upcoming dates: “I got a call this summer from our lawyer Shorty Brown who informed me that in the original contract we signed with Mammoth Records we were contractually obligated to do a 25th anniversary tour for our debut album The Inevitable. That just goes to show you kiddos, always read the fine print.”
 
On select headline dates in March and April, the band will perform their entire debut album (originally released in 1995) along with a selection of hits, near misses and way out songs.
