With the writer strike going on, it seems that actor Keanu Reeves is keeping busy by getting the band back together. In support of their new album underway, Reeves’ band Dogstar is going on tour this summer with a tour date scheduled in Houston on September 25.
In the higher echelons of celebrity, there are but a few actors and musicians that have remained universally beloved. Up there with Dolly Parton and Dave Grohl, Keanu Reeves has continued to win over the masses with his generosity, humility, and brooding action roles.
Perhaps lesser known, is that Reeves is the bassist of the longstanding band, Dogstar – a trio formed in 1991, with Reeves on bass, Bret Domrose as the guitarist and vocalist Bret Domrose, and Robert Mailhouse on drums.
As part of the Somewhere Between the Power Lines and Palm Trees Tour, in celebration of their eponymous album set to be released on their label Dillon Street Records on October 6, the band have tracked out 14 dates, scheduling a performance in Houston at the House of Blues on September 25.
This will be the third album released by the group. Two of the album’s tracks – Everything Turns Around and Breach – are now available to listen on Spotify and Youtube. The band’s concert in Houston will be the first time that Dogstar has played in the city since their performance at Numbers in Montrose back in 1997.
“When creating this record, we were so excited about the idea of playing it live,” the group said. “So we are thrilled to finally announce the Somewhere Between the Power Lines and Palm Trees Tour and to soon play for our fans all over North America and Japan.”
Tickets will be available this Friday, August 25, at 10 am via Live Nation. Ticket prices have yet to be revealed.
