GENERAL ON SALE SATURDAY, MAY 16
DEBUT APPEARANCE ON THE NEW TONIGHT SHOW WITH CONAN O’BRIEN CONFIRMED FOR JULY 7
Currently entrancing capacity crowds throughout the UK and Europe, Andrew Bird returns next month to follow up his standing room only spring U.S. tour with an expanding series of headline, support and festival dates taking him through the bulk of the summer.
Bird’s July 10 debut headline engagement at Los Angeles’ prestigious Greek Theater is the latest of the high profile headline dates to go on sale, with tickets available to the general public beginning Saturday May 16 at 10 a.m. Ra Ra Riot and Heartless Bastards will serve as very special guests for this landmark evening.
A few days prior to the Greek show, Bird will follow up his successful Letterman and Leno plays with a July 7 debut appearance on the new Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien.
Other upcoming dates, previously announced and otherwise, include headlining stands at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion and Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Center, support engagements with Death Cab For Cutie and the Decemberists, and appearances at the Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Wanderlust and Britt festivals.
Released January 20 on Fat Possum Records, Noble Beast debuted at #12 on the U.S. album chart, and has since amassed nearly 100,000 sales. Noble Beast’s first week sales were the highest of the week for an independent label release and second highest of the week overall (second only to Mariah Carey’s Ballads collection!). The record was also that week’s biggest seller in Bird’s hometown of Chicago.
