The Residents will embark on their long-awaited “Faceless Forever” 50th anniversary tour this spring.
The North American trek kicks off in Portland, Oregon on March 16th and hits 22 cities including Chicago, New York, and New Orleans. The “Faceless Forever” tour wraps with a three-night stint at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall from April 17th to 19th. Check out the full live itinerary below.
Tickets are available via Stubhub — where orders are 100% guaranteed through Stubhub’s FanProtect program.
The groundbreaking Bay Area group’s latest trek arrives after three years of pandemic-related delays, with an anniversary celebration originally scheduled for 2020, then subsequently rescheduled to 2021, and later moved to late 2022. As previously planned, the “Faceless Forever” tour will showcase songs from The Residents’ 1978 album Duck Stab as well as their 2020 LP, METAL, MEAT & BONE.
Additionally, each night will feature a screening of the eyeball-laden experimental rockers’ debut feature film, Triple Trouble, which compiles footage from their scrapped avant-garde movie project from the ’70s, Vileness Fats, along with new material directed by longtime collaborator Homer Flynn. After making the rounds in the 2022 festival circuit, fans will be get to feast their eyes on Triple Trouble at every tour stop before The Residents take the stage. It will also be available for viewing via MoMA’s “Virtual Cinema” platform between March 9th and 23rd.
