Circle Jerks Extend First Tour in 15 Years Through Spring 2022
SoCal punk icons Circle Jerks are strapping on the instruments for their first North American tour in 15 years. The punk legends already have a leg of dates lined up for the fall, with more dates in early 2022 and now an additional leg of shows will carry them through spring of next year.
Hitting both coasts, the band will take out Negative Approach and 7Seconds on this run, with the latter band playing their first dates in over five years. The new leg kicks off March 17 in Salt Lake City, crossing the Midwest, dipping into Canada, hitting the East Coast and crossing back across the country before a May 13 finale in Los Angeles. See all of the stops listed below.
The tour comes as the band is promoting the 40th anniversary reissue of their landmark album Group Sex, which is available digitally and in vinyl formats.
The Circle Jerks current lineup includes singer Keith Morris, guitarist Greg Hetson, bassist Zander Schloss and drummer Joey Castillo. Tickets for the new batch of dates will go on sale this Friday (Oct. 8) at 10AM local time. Check the band's website for ticketing info.
