2021 marks the 40-year anniversary of the inception of 10,000 Maniacs. Founded in 1981 in Jamestown, NY, 10,000 Maniacs, has become recognized as one of the most enduring bands from the early "alternative rock" movement having released close to 20 albums. Their critically acclaimed, break-out album, In My Tribe, was included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s "100 Best Albums Of The Eighties.” In 1993, 10,000 Maniacs made their iconic performance on MTV's "Unplugged" and the released recording of that show would go on to sell millions of copies. All told the band has sold over 10 million albums, with 8 Billboard Hot 100 singles, and has made countless appearances on national TV, including Saturday Night Live, The Late Show With David Letterman, and more.
Now after 15 months off the road due to the pandemic, it is time for 10,000 Maniacs to get back to doing what they love the most, which is sharing the stage together bringing their music to their fans, both old and new. For the live experience, the band pulls from their entire catalogue and continues to earn rave reviews for their performances.
