Wild Beasts plot ambitious tour of North America

on May 13, 2010, 4:25pm

Earlier in the year, Wild Beasts made their first visit to America in support of critically acclaimed album Two Dancers. The result was a series of sold out shows that by most accounts were a well-played treat, enjoyed by the fortunate crowds. In fact, the success of this tour has convinced Wild Beasts to schedule a return trip to cash in on the buzz built by the previous trek. For five shows!

Yes, the ambitious set of dates will cross the entire country for five special nights of Wild Beasts where they belong, under the American spotlight! Well, actually one of those dates is Lollapalooza, so that will be more of a shared spotlight. I mean they will probably play in the daytime, so there it will be under sunlight. And one of the dates is in Canada. But the lucky residents of Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York, who never get any of the good shows, will be privy to a headlining performance from the Wild Beasts. Let’s hope they are not too exhausted from what their press release calls “non-stop intensity,” sometimes playing as many as 4 shows in a week!

But seriously, if you are one of the 30 million people with access to one of those cities, try to get one of the few thousand tickets. The math may seem scary, but only the really hip listen to this band, anyway. Join them…
