Y&T Announces Special Acoustic Shows

Jason Bullinger For Alternative Revolt

Bay Area rockers Y&T will play two special acoustic shows later this month. Be among the first to experience the newest Meniketti Wines (being released in July), enjoy an intimate Y&T acoustic set (performing some songs from the new acoustic CD), then hang out with frontman Dave Meniketti and his wife and Y&T manager Jill and the rest of the band afterward — all included in the price of your ticket.

July 13 – Downtown & Vine, Sacramento, CA
July 15 – Nonno’s, Los Gatos, CA

Tickets are available at this location.

Asked in a recent interview with the “Mark & Mitch Show” if Y&T would ever consider doing a stripped-down acoustic tour, Dave Meniketti said: “Probably not. [Laughs] Only because, you know, I think it’d be fun to maybe break it down in the middle of the set and have us do an acoustic thing, maybe a couple of songs. That could be a thing. But, going out and doing a whole tour acoustically, I would feel unfulfilled, let’s put it that way, simply because the power and majesty of Y&T is really us plugged in and taking our heads off when we’re playing. Not that I can’t get into what I’m doing acoustically, but there’s no other feeling like that to me.”
