Living Colour

Living Colour's genre-breaking debut album Vivid, which spawned hits "Cult of Personality" and "Glamour Boys," is 25 years old this year and the band will be playing the album in full on tour this spring, including the previously-mentioned NYC show at Irving Plaza on April 6. Tickets are still available.

You can see them sooner than that when Living Colour joins 24-7 Spyz at Highline Ballroom on January 21 for a charity event called "Million Man Mosh." Proceeds go to benefit the legal defense of Spyz guitarist Rony Drayton's son Donovan who was recently released on bail after serving five years in Riker's Island without a conviction." Tickets are still available. Flyer for the show is below and you can read more about the case here.

A stream of Living Colour's Vivid, show flyer and a list of all tour dates are below.

This band was great back in the day. it's a shame their legacy will forever be tarnished from the stupid singer breaking up the band and forming Hootie & the Blowfish.

People used to try really hard to like Living Colour after 'Cult of Personality.' Seriously, I remember people trying to justify 'Glamour Boys' as a good song. Times were strange back then. A lot of Body Glove clothing and fake dreads on a lot of corny white people.

Bad in 88 and worse today.

Glover was good in the Platoon movie.

Like a fine wine, they have turned into an even shittier pile of doo doo.

This band was totally forgettable and was only popular due to some television station that played music videos way back in the 80's.

I'm sure it had something to do with this.

I remember seeing them when this album first came out (Ritz or Roseland, cant remember) and De La Soul was the opener. How time flies.

OMG, like Radiohead was sooooooooo 1993!

These guys were awesome, actually. Vernon Reid is a motherfucker on guitar and Corey Glover (Danny Glover's son) is an excellent vocalist.

I saw Bad Brains open for them at Roseland back in the day and it was a sick show. Not sure what they sound like today, but these dudes deserve some respect, body glove wetsuit, dreads and all.

In 50 years, people will likely look back at 'Cult of Personality' as one of the most representative songs of the American psyche moving out of the '80's heading towards collapse.

I know your anger, I know your dreams
I've been everything you want to be
I'm the cult of personality
Like Mussolini and Kennedy
I'm the cult of personality

In 1 minute, people will likely call you a vapid cunt for your vapid cuntiness.

1:58 - you are a vapid cunt.

Is Corey Glover really Danny Glover's son? Because I don't see anywhere else that says that.

not launching 'Body Glover' wetsuit brand was a mistake

Posted by Anonymous | January 17, 2013 9:50 PM

I remember once a few years ago on Bowery near CBGB's, chilly rainy late afternoon, seeing Vernon Reid driving a beat up filthy grey cargo minivan with some shitty cymbal stands sticking out of the passenger window. It was fucking depressing as shit.

25 years goes by quick.

Truly talented artists expressing themselves with a purposeful message, not wash-rinse-repeat garbage for a paycheck. That's all I miss.
