Dale Crover of Melvins Share Memories From 2019 Tour + 2020 Plans

Ahead of Melvins' great big Escape From LA Tour with Redd Kross, we had Buzz Osbourne and Steven McDonald (also of Red Kross) stop by Setlist.Fm for a Tour Update, which you can watch below.
Tour Update: The Melvins Do As Many Odd Tunings As Possible
Now that Melvins have touched down from the massive 10-week tour and trek around Japan, we were curious to know which one of those dozens of shows this year hit home for the band.
Dale Crover (now both of the Melvins and Redd Kross) shares with us his top gigs from the year, reflects on the best show he saw as a fan in 2019, and tells us what's in store for the band(s) in 2020!
Check it out.
What was your favorite show that YOU played this year?
"I got to play a lot of great shows this year! It’s impossible to pick a favorite. Playing the Chris Cornell Tribute at the Forum was definitely a highlight.
As was opening for the Raconteurs at the Fox in Oakland, Melvins playing an acoustic set on a trolley in San Diego, Dale Crover Band at Zebulon, Los Angeles and Redd Kross capping the year off at the SMooCH benefit in Seattle."
What was your favorite show that you SAW this year?
"Elton John, Goodbye Yellow Brick road tour was an amazing show to see, but finally seeing The Rolling Stones at Levi Stadium was absolutely the best! The majority of their set was from the Mick Taylor era, which is my favorite. I got to watch sound check and they played 'Rocks Off' from Exile On Main Street."
What do you have planned for 2020?
"I plan on doing a lot of recording this winter. Melvins have a big tour of California in February. Redd Kross tours Europe in the Spring and are working on setting up US dates for Summer. Buzz has a new solo record coming in 2020. I’ll also have new solo releases and hope to do more live shows with my band as well."
