Influential American Rock band Flipper will be touring the UK and Europe this Summer as a trio with Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE, The Stooges) joining the founding members, Stephen DePace(drums) and Ted Falconi(guitar) as the bass-player and vocalist.
“Flipper will be out making new friends and rekindling old friendships with guest vocalists and musicians along the way,” says Stephen DePace, drummer and co-founder of the band for Brooklyn Vegan.
For this summer tour, the founding members, Ted Falconi and Stephen DePace reached out to Mike Watt to invite him to join them marking the band’s 43rd anniversary. The band’s interactions with Mike Watt goes back to the 80’s, when Flipper and Minutemen played their first show together in San Francisco.
The trio will hit the UK first with a run of shows, then head across to the European mainland to round out the 3-week tour period. In total, there will be 21 shows as planned at this time with Mike Watt. Along the way, Flipper will be announcing future shows with guest singers and musicians, as a part of ‘Till The Wheels Fall Off’ World Tour.
