Detroit hard rockers MC5 are celebrating the 50th anniversary of their legendary 1968 debut album Kick Out the Jams with a special 30+ concert "MC50" tour.

Guitarist Wayne Kramer is the only original member of the band that will be on this 2018 tour. (Sadly, three of the five members of the original/classic lineup have passed away.)  However, fans should not be disheartened because Kramer has recruited a formidable group to join him: Kim Thayil from Soundgarden on guitar, Dug Pinnick from King's X on bass, Brendan Canty from Fugazi on drums, and rounding out the band will be vocalist Marcus Durant from Zen Guerrilla.

The shows are scheduled to begin on September 5 in Florida and extend into late October. The MC50 will play small to mid-size venues across the country, which should make for intimate and exciting performances of some of the most revolutionary rock songs ever created.

When do MC50 2018 tour tickets go on sale and what is the presale code?

The general public on-sale begins as early as April 6, 2018.
