The Radiators to Reunite at Tipitina’s 35th Anniversary
New Orleans heroes The Radiators will reunite for a pair of shows at Tipitina’s on January 18 and 19. The show is part of the New Orleans club’s 35th anniversary celebration.
The Radiators announced their impending break-up in 2010 and played their final shows—dubbed the The Last Watusi—at Tip’s from June 9-11, 2011. The members of the group have continued to collaborate in different settings over the past year and the entire band reunited for a brief performance at New Orleans’ The Howlin’ Wolf on May 1. The May reunion show was a benefit for bassist Reggie Scanlan, who was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. According to Nola.com, his cancer is now in remission.
