That's right, you get the main forces from both Mirrors and electric eels filling out the lineup on this tour to make this a must see
show. The rest of the lineup will be long time members, guitarist U.K. Rattay, bassist Al Margolis and drummer John Dylan Keith.

Expect "a show that spans all the bands and their history, from the early '70s to our most recent", a choice cover or two and a few overlooked gems.

The band will also have limited represses of the first Mirrors, electric eels and The Stryrenes 7" singles and other merch to be sold only at these shows. Not sure if the singles will be quite ready for the start of tour but we're hoping. West coasters and overseas will have to wait until after tour ends to buy any remaining copies.

Stay tuned right here for details on when they are available for the masses. Additionally, John Morton has been posting video reports of the tour here.
