The Glitter and Doom Tour was a concert tour by American rock musician Tom Waits.

Background[edit]

The tour was announced at a performance art press conference on May 5, 2008.

Tickets[edit]

Tickets for Waits' summer shows were limited to two per person but, in an effort to beat ticket touts, a valid I.D. (passport or driving licence) matching the name on the ticket was required to gain entry. Any concert-goer who did not have a valid I.D. or was found to be in possession of a ticket that had been resold – electronic scanners were employed – was not allowed in and did not get a refund.[1]

Band[edit]

As of July 22 Tom Waits band consisted of the following:[citation needed]
