DOROTHY ANNOUNCES 2018 FREEDOM TOUR DATES
LAUNCHES GRASSROOTS INITIATIVE TO SELECT LOCAL ARTISTS AS OPENING ACTS FOR EACH SHOW
RULES & BAND SUBMISSION FORM AVAILABLE HERE:
Los Angeles-based alternative rock band Dorothy has announced tour dates for the 2018 Freedom Tour. Dorothy is taking the high voltage show to major cities across the United States including Chicago, New York, Boston, Nashville, Los Angeles, Austin, and more.
Dorothy will perform new music from their forthcoming album along with other fan-favorites from their ROCKISDEAD debut album, the fresh single “Down To The Bottom,” and “Naked Eye” from the Served Like A Girl soundtrack. Rolling Stone recently featured “Down To The Bottom” in their column ‘The Playlist’ as the “perfect mix of blues thunder and alt-rock guitar crunch.” Watch the live video of “Down To The Bottom” here.
Taking on an unprecedented interest in local culture, for the 2018 Freedom Tour, Dorothy are looking for a hometown favorite band from each city to be the opening act for every show along the way. All genres are welcome. This will be an opportunity to bring the focus of touring back to developing the local music scene.
“Touring sweeps you from city to city. Sometimes you don’t even get a chance to venture past a couple blocks of the venue you’re performing in. On this tour, we are doing something different. Instead of letting a band with marketing dollars and guaranteed ticket sales open for me, I thought it would be cool to let the local favorite band in each city have a shot,” shares Martin.
“This tour is about taking the time to truly connect with the different communities to get a taste of what the local music scene is like. We want to be inspired. This could be a disaster or it could be complete magic. Who knows? WHO CARES?! It’s rock n’ roll.”

Dorothy was built around Dorothy Martin, a singer who was born in Budapest but raised in San Diego. As a child, she started singing early and eventually made her way to Los Angeles. Her latest EP earned attention from L.A. Weekly and Rolling Stone – the latter named Dorothy one of the best 50 Best New Artists of 2014. All the chatter was enough to earn the attention of Jay-Z’s Roc nation who signed Dorothy in 2015. She recently put together a new, high level, and powerful band including guitarist Nick Maybury, guitarist Leroy Wulfmeier, bassist Eliot Lorango, and drummer Jason Ganberg. Dorothy is managed by We Are Hear and represented by Roc Nation.
