Don’t You Evah EP Debuts #1 on Billboard Singles Sales Chart

Following on a standing-room-only U.S. tour that culminated in the Don’t You Evah EP entering Billboard’s singles sales chart at #1, Britt Daniel, Jim Eno, Eric Harvey and Rob Pope-collectively known as Spoon-have confirmed their final live engagements of 2008.

This last run of Spoon shows will be preceded by a May 3 Britt Daniel solo performance at the Belly Up in Solana Beach CA. From there, the full band will be headlining the KNRK Pet Aid Benefit in Troutdale OR, playing their biggest ever New York show July 15 at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, appearing at the Mile High and Pitchfork festivals, making their debut at the Hollywood Bowl September 20 supporting Beck, and concluding with a three-night residency at the Fillmore Theater in San Francisco-the last dates of the tour and first Spoon SF headline engagement since the July 2007 release of Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. Tickets for the Fillmore shows go on sale to the general public May 11.

These dates will mark the close of more than a year’s worth of touring in support of Spoon’s sixth full-length studio album, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, which was Spoon’s first Top 10 album and most acclaimed release of their career. Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga’s U.S. sales are now approaching 300,000, the band’s biggest ever coverage has run in the likes of TIME and THE NEW YORKER, Best of 2007 placements have included NPR, GQ, NEW YORK, ROLLING STONE, PITCHFORK, BLENDER, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, SPIN THE ONION, PASTE and the WASHINGTON POST, and Oct. 6 marked the band’s debut appearance on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.
