APRIL 22 ON JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE
As 2014 album of the year front-runner Morning Phase (Capitol) logs its fourth week in the Top 20, two additional dates have been added to Beck’s hotly anticipated spring/summer tour. At press time, Beck’s recently announced dates in New York, Santa Barbara, Tucson, Montreal and Toronto have completely sold out.
Tickets for the two new dates–an April 10 second night at Santa Barbara’s Arlington Theater and and additional New York City show June 30 at the Hammerstein Ballroom–go on sale to the public Friday, April 4 at 10 am local time. Pre-sales begin April 2 (see below for details).
In addition to the upcoming live dates, Beck will follow his stunning turns last month on Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with two more appearances on the small screen this month: April 1 on The Ellen Degeneres Show and April 22 on Jimmy Kimmel Live. OnApril 27, Beck will make his return to the venerable Austin City Limits series, taping a performance to air at a later date TBD.
Aside from being the first chance to hear the songs of Morning Phase in the flesh, Beck’s upcoming dates are not be missed–a glance at the reviews of his most recent handful of dates from summer 2013 shows easily puts them among the most enthusiastic raves of his–or anyone’s–career:
“Electrifying… another example of a Beck show that was so good, so special, that if you missed it, you simply missed it. It probably won’t go down like that again.”–THE BOSTON GLOBE
“It seemed downright perverse that a show this good only received two performances – the band had played Boston a couple of nights earlier – but then again, Beck has made a specialty, and a great success, of defying expectations and playing by his own rules.”–THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“more like a 20 year retrospective on one of the most important artists of our generation rather than just a typical concert… As soon as the first few notes of ‘Devil’s Haircut’ hummed through the speakers, it was as if someone fired a gun in the air. Everyone’s attention was drawn to the stage and it pretty much stayed there for the next two hours.”–THE VILLAGE VOICE
“Defying music-business logic is one of the Californian’s areas or expertise, but it’s also the reason he commands such a devout following, even after more than two decades… and boy, has he covered a lot of ground up to now.”–THE NEW YORK POST
