Ed Kowalczyk, the legendary songwriter and former lead-singer of Live is hitting the road in support of the album’s 20th Anniversary.  The Throwing Copper Unplugged – 20th Anniversary Tour is already mapped through the East Coast and Midwest (no Florida dates yet)  and will be a can’t miss event this Winter.

Throwing Copper is one of the defining albums of the 1990’s and is absolutely packed with rock music masterpieces. “Stripped back, intimate and disarming, Ed Kowalczyk will appear onstage with a new unplugged production, some of rock’s most profound anthems and the voice that has attracted legions of fans for more than two decades.”

Live are one of the pre-eminent Alternative rock bands in history, and the driving force behind the band was clearly Kowalczyk.  They sold more than 20 million albums and have toured the world numerous times.  And, since leaving the band, Kowalczyk has continued to make music and tour, always putting on an engaging, entertaining show.  On this tour, you can expect to hear some of alternative rock’s most iconic hits, including “Lightning Crashes”, “I Alone”, “Selling the Drama”, “The Dolphin’s Cry”, “Overcome” and “Heaven.” 

“For his newest creative offering, the Throwing Copper Unplugged – 20th Anniversary Tour, Kowalczyk will perform a breathtaking acoustic set that celebrates the 20th anniversary of this seminal Live album, along with a few surprises. “I’m so excited to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Throwing Copper in this new unplugged production”, Ed says. “Fans can expect to see and hear me like never before!”

We caught Kowalczyk last year, and he puts on a fantastic show, as you can see here” Velvet Sessions Concert Review.  Having a chance to witness him playing these legendary tracks in an acoustic setting should just ratchet that experience up a notch.
