Y&T Puts New Album On Hold While Band Hits The Road


April 7, 2009

The Y&T boys have been busy this year writing for a new album, but the writing has been placed on hold as the band gears up to head out on tour. They plan to continue writing, as time allows, in-between their busy touring schedule. To keep updated on this new Y&T project and its progress, please visit the web site forum at www.meniketti.com/vforum.

Thanks to everyone who came out to support Y&T for the first four shows of this landmark 35th anniversary year. An extra special thanks to those who attended the Fillmore in San Francisco for a 2nd SOLD OUT performance there; it was another magical night for the band and the fans.

Y&T IS 35!

If you haven’t seen them yet, check out the 2009 Y&T shirts on the merchandise page and see what we’ve got in store to celebrate Y&T’s 35th anniversary this year. These special items are available exclusively at Y&T shows and through our online store at store.meniketti.com


Details for each of the shows below are on the TOUR DATES page of the web site at www.meniketti.com/tourdates.html

Stay tuned! More 2009 shows to come!

NOTE: If you don’t see your city listed on the tour dates page, we’re either working on it or it’s just not in the plans at this time. Rather than emailing us to ask when Y&T is coming to your town, your biggest help to the band and your best shot at getting the guys to your area is for you to contact your local venues and promoters and tell them you want Y&T. Thank you.
