The truth: Black Box Revelation toured Europe with their own headlining shows and toured extensively in the United States sharing stages with Iggy Pop, Jane’s Addiction, Meat Puppets, Beady Eye, The Eagle of Death Metal, The Raveonettes, dEUS… But above all they are known for their live performances: the unbelievable sound they create on stage is hailed by press and public.
