X tickets - X Tour

X 2014 Tour Schedule

American punk rock flourished in the 1970s, and Los Angeles punk group X took advantage of this punk rock obsession and became one of the biggest groups on the music scene. From the late 1970s to the early 1990s, X was one of the most influential punk rock bands in music, despite the fact that they only achieved limited commercial success. X may not have made it big in mainstream music, but this fact actually makes their music that much more authentic and gritty, true to the punk rock way of refusing to conform to the industry's standards. This acclaimed group has been lauded by Rolling Stone Magazine and Pitchfork, and their international fan base has adored these punk rock legends for years.

X Background

John Doe and Billy Zoom originally founded X in 1977 in Los Angeles, Caliofnira. Additional members were soon added, and they included Exene Cervenka and DJ Bonebrake, and this quartet completed the original lineup of X. The band signed its first record deal with an independent label called Dangerhouse, under which they released just one single, "Adult Books"/"We're Desperate". X started to gain some serious momentum, however, and outgrew Dangerhouse. In 1980, X signed with the larger and more prominent label, Slash Records, and issued their debut album Los Angeles that same year. Although this album didn't achieve great mainstream success, it was well received among underground music scenes and by critics.

Their second album truly launched the band into the indie music spotlight, as their album Wild Gift was named "Record of the Year" by four main publications: Rolling Stone Magazine, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and Village Voice. From then on, X was one of the most acclaimed punk rock groups in music, and even achieved great commercial success in the late 1980s. With their poetic lyrics and hard rock sound, X became one of the most influential bands in the punk rock scene. While the band took a few hiatuses throughout their career, they are back in action and ready to put on a show that you will never forget.
