Adrian Belew Announces Quartet Tour with Julie Slick

Julie Slick with Adrian Belew

After touring with his power trio for years, guitarist Adrian Belew has announced a tour for 2019 with a new quartet. The outing will be in support of a new album, Pop-sided, which will come in March.

The tour kicks off February 28th in Buffalo, New York before covering most of the Eastern half of the United States. Belew has tapped drummer Jordan Perlson, multi-instrumentalist Saul Zonana, and bassist Julie Slick for the band. Slick has been a steady member of the Adrian Belew Power Trio for the past decade in addition to her solo work and band, EchoTest.

“I don’t think the trio is over, it could conceivably return at a future point,” Belew wrote on Facebook, “but musically the new band is more about presenting my songs from throughout my career. I want to finally do some FLUX material. I want to do King Crimson material the exact way it was done on record (and do Crimson stuff the trio could not do). I want to FLUX through my catalog of solo works. I want to do new songs from my new record. I want to touch on material I have done with other artists, and I want to play the best of the power trio.”

    Allright! I’ll head down from Ontario to see them in Minneapolis. Belew and Slick are consistently amazing. Love their music.
