Extreme announce South American tour

Extreme have announced dates for a tour of South America next month.

The Boston rockers will perform 7 shows on the continent as part of their Pornograffitti Live 25th Anniversary tour.

The run will see Extreme playing the album in its entirety alongside with a greatest hits set.

The band’s second album, “Extreme II: Pornograffitti (A Funked Up Fairy Tale)”, put Extreme on the map; it featured two hit singles, “More Than Words” and “Hole Hearted”, both acoustic-based numbers…while most of the album was a mix of hard rock and funk.

Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black recently produced a shot-by-shot remake of “More Than Words” for The Tonight Show.

Black sang lead vocals in place of Gary Cherone while Fallon handled guitar duties originally performed by Nuno Bettencourt.
