Sugar's 1992 record Copper Blue/Beaster was reissued a few weeks ago and Bob Mould is currently on the road performing the classic album in its entirety. The tour will visit a handful of cities in North America next month, so be sure to grab tickets if you're lucky enough to have a date in your town. If not, well, there's always You Tube...
Watch about 30 minutes of Mould's Copper Blue set captured at the August 6th stop in Helsinki, Finland below:
On August 15th Dave Grohl invited Bob Mould onstage to play with the Foo Fighters at their show in Italy. Mould ended up joining the Foos for two songs: Wasting Light's "Dear Rosemary," and a cover of Tom Petty's "Breakdown." Watch video of the performance below (the first video captured Grohl's full introduction of Mould and "Dear Rosemary." The second video cuts off part of Grohl's introduction, but includes both songs and has clearer audio).
