Romero Kicks Off U.S. Tour Dates

The genre-bending heavy stoner rockers from Romero are returning to the road this weekend. Romero’s first tour of 2017 stretches across 9 U.S. heartland states in just under 2 weeks.

Singer / guitarist, Jeffrey Mundt comments: “We do this, essentially, because we love to…not because anyone is paying us a ton of money or as an obligation to sell a product.”

“This band is 100% self-financed,” Mundt continues, “so we can only do what we can afford to do… or what we can afford to eventually pay off. We work very hard and time is definitely an issue. By no means is Romero a group of careless, invincible 20 somethings living under the same roof. Those days are long gone. All four of us have separate lives, families, responsibilities & interests. It’s really tough for any of us to leave home, so we try to find a balance.”

5/12 FR – Milwaukee, WI – Frank’s Power Plant
5/13 SA – Chicago, IL – Underground Lounge
5/14 SU – Indianapolis, IN – Taps Live
5/15 MO – Louisville, KY – Magnolia Bar
5/17 WE – Nashville – Springwater
5/19 FR – St Louis, MO – Fubar
5/20 SA – Wichita, KS – Elbow Room
5/22 MO – Omaha, NE – Dr. Jack’s Drinkery
5/24 WE – Des Moines, IA – Lefty’s
