To mark the 30th anniversary of the milestone recording, Horses, Patti Smith and her long-time collaborator, guitarist Lenny Kaye, have embarked on a short tour. During a stop on Monday (11/14) at San Francisco's gorgeous Great American Music Hall, the duo firmly reminded a capacity crowd (which, really, didn't need reminding) why "Horses" is rightfully considered one of the greatest debuts of all time.
In other related news, Arista/Columbia/Legacy Recordings released a two-disc special edition of Smith's debut earlier this month. The set, entitled "Horses/Horses," features a remastered version of the original album, as well as a live performance of the complete work that was recorded earlier this year at the Royal Festival Hall in London.
Smith and Kaye will next perform tonight (11/15) in Los Angeles, before joining the rest of the Patti Smith Group to open two nights (11/21-22) for U2 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
15 – West Hollywood, CA – The Troubadour
21-22 – New York, NY – Madison Square Garden (opening for U2)
30 – New York, NY – BAM
1 – New York, NY – BAM
So why isn't Patti coming to Boston? I saw here about 3 times back in the day :)
