Self-editing is overrated. Or is it?

Pull yourself together, people! Tom Waits is going on tour!

According to Billboard Magazine, Tom Waits is going on tour which is huge as it happens like once in a blue moon. As a person who saw his last tour seven years ago, I can tell you it's one of the most entertaining nights you're ever gonna spend.

For some strange reason, he is going to some cities that you would not necessarily expect him to show up in. When asked about this, Waits said ""We need to go to Tennessee to pick up some fireworks, and someone owes me money in Kentucky."

And while there's no word of a new album from Waits, Anti- Records is at work on a long-awaited boxed set. No release date has been nailed down, according to the artist's rep.

Waits will also be seen in two dramas set for theatrical release next year: "The Good Heart" alongside Ryan Gosling and "Texas Lullaby" with John Malkovich and Josh Hartnett, which is loosely based on William Shakespeare's "Hamlet."

Here are Tom Waits' tour dates:

Aug. 1: Atlanta (Tabernacle)
Aug. 2: Asheville, N.C. (Thomas Wolfe Auditorium)
Aug. 4: Memphis (Orpheum Theatre)
Aug. 5: Nashville (Ryman Auditorium)
Aug. 7: Louisville (Palace Theatre)
Aug. 9: Chicago (Auditorium Theatre)
Aug. 11: Detroit (Opera House)
Aug. 13: Akron, Ohio (Civic Theatre)

I wish I could make one of these shows but I can't. But if you're out there, you know you need to be there.
