Ladies and gentlemen

It is our great pleasure to announce for the first time in 7 years the first two confirmed performances by Garbage will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia on May 11th and in Moscow, Russia on May 12th 2012. We are beyond thrilled to revisit Russia where we have played to incredible and memorable crowds over the years, where we have seen so many wonderous things and met so many lovely fans. These are the first dates to be confirmed on our world tour of 2012 but we rush to assure Garbage fans all over the world that there are many more dates yet to be announced. Stay tuned. We will announce them here as soon as they are confirmed. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support. It is the outpouring of such incredible enthusiasm that propelled us to make this new record and to get back out on the road to play for you all again. We can never fully express our gratitude to you for supporting us so we can continue to do the things in life we love to do the most.

Love and thanks from all of us.


THIS IS VERY EXCITING NEWS!!!! (sorry for the caps). I have no doubt that Garbage will play shows near me, so I’m really looking forward to seeing the band live in concert again. I’ve seen them live a few times … including their first concert ever at St. Andrew’s Hall in Detroit, MI back in 1995 and let me tell you … they are AMAZING! Altho we’ve yet to hear any of the new music, I can hardly contain my excitement. Wee!! Hopefully we’ll be hearing about new concert dates soon.

    Oh sure…the May 12th show just has to be in Moscow, huh? It couldn’t be Los Angeles so I could celebrate the big 2-5 (I’m lying, it’s the big 3-0) with Shirley (who is destined to share Darion and myself as her gay bffs, she just doesn’t know it yet) and the boys.

    Still, so excited!! Can’t wait for the U.S. dates to be revealed!

    EEPP I’m moving to England the first part of May! There may very well be a trip to Russia being planned (if they don’t announce any UK dates)! So excited!!
