Maryland rockers CLUTCH will perform very special sets on their annual run of dates between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. The upcoming dates in D.C., Sayreville and Philadelphia will feature three completely different sets — 54 songs total. In addition, the band will play “Blast Tyrant” in its entirety for the first time ever on New Year’s Eve at Union Transfer in Philadelphia. Tickets are on sale now.
“We’ve been having a blast over here in Europe playing a ton of songs spanning our 28-year career” states CLUTCH drummer Jean-Paul Gaster. “Nuremberg marks the fourth night of the tour, and so far we’ve played 62 different songs. It is for this reason we’ve decided to play three completely different sets for the final three CLUTCH shows of 2019″
