Dumpstaphunk to Open For Lionel Richie

Beginning tomorrow, September 24th, New Orleans legends Dumpstaphunk will open for Lionel Richie on select dates of his "All the Hits All Night Long" tour. What a combo!

Ivan Neville and his band of merry funksters will join Lionel at Barclay's Center tomorrow, then proceed to Atlanta, Houston, San Jose, and finally Hollywood. Full list of tour dates can be found below.

When he heard the news of who they were set to tour with, Ivan gushed, "The Commodores are one of the pioneers of funk — we definitely listened to Lionel's music around the house growing up. It's an honor for us to join him on tour."

If you have yet to experience Dumpstaphunk, they're the dirtiest, gnarliest, funkiest dudes (and chick, who happens to be the most badass of them all) in the game. They recently stepped it up even further with the release of their new album, Dirty Word, which features such legends as Ani DiFranco and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I can't wait for them to spread the NOLA love coast-to-coast with this incredible and well-deserved exposure.

Check out Dumpstaphunk's full tour dates below and catch them when they phunk up your town. Get your tickets here.
