Iconic singer-songwriter Tom Waits is adding an extra stop to his sold-out “Glitter & Doom” summer tour: NPR Music’s “Live in Concert” series. NPR Music is the only place to hear a full concert from Waits’ tour, which will be available for both free streaming and podcast at www.NPR.org/music beginning today, Tuesday, July 29.
During the show, recorded at Atlanta’s historic Fox Theater on July 5, Waits gives a stunning, two-and-a-half hour performance, featuring songs he’s never played outside a studio. The 25-track set includes “Hold On,” “All the World is Green” and “Hoist That Rag,” followed by an encore of “Anywhere I Lay My Head.”
Waits is the latest musician to have an entire performance streamed by NPR Music, which frequently webcasts rock, pop and indie concerts as part of its expanding “Live in Concert” series. Check it out!
