Ted Leo and the Pharmacists Announce Tour for Shake the Sheets’ 20th Anniversary

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists will embark on a 20th anniversary tour for Shake the Sheets this year, with support at select dates from Ekko Astral and Diners. The tour is bookended by stops in New Jersey and Los Angeles, with shows in Brooklyn and Chicago among the middle stretch. The shows will be “full band, playing Shake the Sheets in its entirety (plus more, obviously),” Leo said in press materials. Check out the dates below.

In full, Leo stated:

FOLKS, 2024 is somehow the 20th anniversary of our SHAKE THE SHEETS album, and I’m happy to announce some tour dates: full band, playing Shake the Sheets in its entirety (plus more, obviously), east coast, west coast, a little bit in between, spread out over pretty much the entire year. VERY EXCITED. We’re very VERY excited to be doing the east coast with DC’s Ekko Astral, who I don’t mind telling you, is one of the greatest bands I’ve heard in YEARS. I think they’re a beautiful, heavy, punk, and dare I say, important band, and I’m honored that they’re joining us for that leg. You also may have heard me wax on about Diners recently, because they put out a record LAST year that I absolutely loved, and that features two of the greatest power pop songs that I’ve heard, yes, I’m gonna say it… IN YEARS. Thrilled to have them join us, as well.
