A lot went down in 1999. Star Wars returned to the big screen, MySpace was officially introduced to the internet, and the human population surpassed 6 billion. It was also the year Ben Folds Five last played a show together on British soil. December 14th, 1999 at the Royal Albert Hall, to be exact. Thirteen long years later, the guys from Knoxville are back. Nine shows across the UK and Ireland have been announced, finishing off at the O2 Brixton Academy, London on December 4th. If you’re anything like us, you’ll owe it to your 90′s self not to miss out. Tickets go on sale this morning, and are guaranteed to fly out!
Princess of folk Laura Marling has extended her tour of the US to include some magnificent West Coast venues, including San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral and LA’s John Anson Ford Theater. What’s more, she’ll be joined by Willy Mason (a folk veteran at 27 years old) for the majority of her US dates. Tickets for the new shows in Salt Lake City, Portland, Seattle, Van Couver and the afore mentioned CA shows go on sale today! Check out Laura’s ‘Live From York Minster’ record on Spotify if you want a taste of things to come.
Anthony Gonzalez’s tour schedule is as justifiably epic as the music he creates. As it stands, M83 are set to play over 120 shows in 2012! There’s no stopping the French-Spanish virtuoso, as this week his summer tour extended way into the fall. New shows in San Diego, Calgary, Miami, New Orleans, Houston, Dallas and more are lined up for September and October, with tickets available from this morning.
