"This is a very special occasion for all of us in garbage. We are particularly excited about the upcoming tour - the intent of which is pretty much the celebration of a 20 year long affair between us and those who have loved us." - SHIRLEY MANSON
Garbage released their genre defying, groundbreaking debut on August 15, 1995 at a time when grunge music dominated the airwaves and mainstream culture. Their distinctive approach to songwriting and production - blending elements of rock, pop and electronic music - captured the attention of critics and fans all over the world. The album spawned multiple hits including: "Vow," "Queer," "Stupid Girl" and "Only Happy When It Rains." It spent more than a year on both the U.S. and U.K. charts, received multi-platinum certifications around the world and was nominated for GRAMMY
® Awards including Best New Artist and Best Rock Song ("Stupid Girl"). The album went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide.
To celebrate 20 years as a band, this October Garbage will embark on a special U.S. and European Anniversary Tour. Christened the 20 Years Queer Tour, the band will play their debut album in its entirety for the first time. A full list of dates can be found below.
