The Toadies are currently on tour in support of the
25th 27th anniversary of their album Rubberneck. A tour that has been two years in the making after being postponed in 2020 and 2021, features tour support from Reverend Horton Heat. The Toadies are playing the above album front to back, includes the hit “Possum Kingdom” as well as other fan favorites “Tyler” and “Backslider”. The album has been a personal favorite of mine for years and I had the pleasure hearing it in full on the 20th Anniversary tour. I was excited to be able to cover the September 29th show in Spokane, Washington.
Drakulas and Reverend Horton Heat opened the show, with the latter playing their 1994 album “Liquor in the Front” in full, in celebration of the albums 25+ year anniversary.
The Toadies came out first playing a few songs from their catalog including a new song “The Charmer”. Then as promised the entire Rubberneck album was played in full, with a very fun finish bringing on stage members of Drakulas and Reverend Horton Heat to join in on drums for “I Burn” with the crowd chanting along. The packed crowd in Spokane was hot all night, with fans of all ages enjoying the show. The Toadies finished by playing several more songs, a couple more new songs and a cover of “I Put a Spell On You”.
The Toadies will continue on tour through October in the United States playing Rubberneck in full, tickets and details are available on their website.
