Philip Selway has expanded his 2015 North American tour into the month of August and the country of Canada. As with previously announced headline engagements in New York, Seattle, Portland and San Francisco, Adem will appear as special guest on all non-festival shows.
The newly confirmed second leg of dates in support of Philip’s critically acclaimed sophomore album Weatherhouse (Bella Union) currently begins with Philip’s first two Canadian appearances as a solo artist–August 2 at the Osheaga Festival in Montreal and August 4 at Toronto’s Mod Club—and includes additional U.S. dates in Boston (Cambridge), Philadelphia and Washington DC.
Tickets for the newly announced headline dates go on sale March 27th at http://www.philipselway.com/
Released in the fall of 2014, Weatherhouse was described by Stereogum as “a pop record with an artful touch that further develops his tender emotional spin on expansively moody sounds” and hailed by Rolling Stone as “a sweeping suite full of moody psychedelic arrangements.”
The album’s material, as well as songs from Philip’s solo debut Familial, will be brought to life for the first time on North American stages next month when Philip and his band of Adem Ilhan (backing Philip as well as opening the headline dates), Kath Mann (a/k/a Quinta) and Chris Vatalaro play four April headline shows as well as the two-weekend Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. The North American run beginsApril 10 at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City with an early evening performance: Doors will open at 6 pm, with Adem on stage at 7 pm and Philip on at 8 pm.
