POPTONE Announces More West Coast Dates

With their recent formation creating quite a stir online, POPTONE band members Daniel Ash, Kevin Haskins and Diva Dompe are preparing to fulfill their fans’ expectations with the announcement of more West Coast shows for those not lucky enough to have landed tickets to the two Los Angeles shows which were near-immediate sellouts. Tour dates are below, with more national shows to be added in the coming weeks. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 17th at 10:00am local time (ticket links below).

Embracing all aspects of their careers – from the legendary Bauhaus, timeless band Tones on Tailand chart-topping alt-rockers Love and Rockets,Ash and Haskins are joined by Haskins’ daughter Diva and have sorted out a majority of the set list they are planning to unfurl for show attendees:

TONES ON TAIL
Go!
OK This Is The Pops
Movement of Fear
Christian Says
Happiness

LOVE AND ROCKETS
An American Dream
Mirror People
No Big Deal

BAUHAUS
Slice of Life

Originally emerging from the British punk and rock underground in the late 70s, Daniel and Kevin, along with vocalist Peter Murphy and bassist David J, Bauhaus spawned four iconoclastic and ultra-seminal albums as well as keystone singles “She’s In Parties”, “Ziggy Stardust”, and, of course, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” before disbanding in 1983. Rising from the rubble, Daniel andGlenn Campling collaborated soon after as the short-lived but no less impactful Tones on Tail (with Kevin joining the fray soon after), and pumped out midnight dancefloor classics such as “Ok This Is the Pops”, “Christian Says” and the smash “Go!” (which has recently appeared in theWe’re the Millers trailer and was most recently re-recorded for the upcoming Power Rangers film). Next, the duo reunited with Bauhaus bassist David J. and hit the mainstream with the formation of Love and Rockets through the 1989 hit single “So Alive” which reached Number 3 on the BillboardHot 100.

Now as Poptone, Daniel and Kevin are revisiting their storied catalogue and presenting in a fresh, new direction, to combine their histories with a reinvigorated outlook for new tours and potentially new music.

Poptone is Daniel Ash (vocals, guitar), Kevin Haskins (drums), and Diva Dompe (bass, backing vocals).
