Y&T Adds Minneapolis to Extensive North American Tour

Long-running metal/hard rock band Y&T will undertake its most ambitious U.S. tour in years in early 2014, and Minneapolis is among a handful of dates that have been recently added. The band will play The Belmore/New Skyway Lounge in downtown Minneapolis on Tuesday, April 22. Y&T Guitarist Dave Meniketti is widely regarded as a guitar god, and their lengthy live shows are the stuff of legend. Y&T last played the region at Moondance Jam in Walker, Minnesota in 2006.

No ticket information is available at this time, but I spoke with the booking agent at The Belmore yesterday and confirmed the show (“I just got the contract yesterday!”). He described the venue as intimate, holding about 400 people – “Like seeing a band in your living room.”). Advance tickets will be sold through Ticketfly, and may go on sale as early at next week (the week of December 23).
