FALL U.S TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
ST. VINCENT TO SUPPORT ALL HEADLINE DATES
TONIGHT SHOW WITH CONAN O’BRIEN PERFORMANCE JULY 7
AUSTIN CITY LIMITS FESTIVAL & TV SHOW APPEARANCES CONFIRMED
“Bird is the total package: a conservatory-trained musician with a slurry croon, a gentle soul, skewed, literate wit, and Beatlesesque mastery of melody.” -The Boston Globe
Fresh off some of the biggest headline shows of his career -including a once in a lifetime night at Radio City Music Hall about which Entertainment Weekly raved “Andrew Bird is a mad genius…The whiz-kid made his intricately-layered brainiac rock look easy, when nothing could be further from the truth” -Andrew Bird has confirmed a final leg of the Noble Beast tour to follow this summer’s trek through the U.S. and abroad. St. Vincent will support on all of Bird’s fall headline dates.
The summer dates will be preceded by Andrew’s July 7 appearance on the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and will kick off with a July 10 headline date at Los Angeles’ Greek Theater featuring support from Ra Ra Riot and Heartless Bastards, followed by a number of dates with the likes of Death Cab For Cutie and the Decemberists. Following an appearance at this year’s Lollapalooza, Bird will spend the remainder of August on a run of European and UK festival dates. He will return to the U.S. for the fall tour, which commences September 19 at the Forward Music Festival in Madison WI, includes a show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, a stop at the Austin City Limits festival (Bird taped a performance for an episode of the ACL TV show to air this fall as well), multiple night stands in Carrboro and Milwaukee, and wraps up with an October 28 return to Washington DC.
Fan pre-sales at www.andrewbird.net for all dates begin today (June 30). General on sales begin July 10, with the exception of Buffalo and Madison which begin July 11.
Andrew Bird’s most recent album, Noble Beast, was released January 20 on Fat Possum Records. It debuted at #12 on the U.S. album chart, and has since passed the 100,000 sales mark, while Bird has recently sold out such prestigious venues as New York’s Carnegie Hall, Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theater and a two-night stand at the Civic Opera House in his hometown of Chicago.
