We’ve recently seen Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Mangum on tour playing his beloved band's music solo, but now, the full group — featuring Mangum, Jeremy Barnes, Scott Spillane and Julian Koster — has announced plans to hit the road for the first time in 15 years. The trek kicks off in Athens, Ga., on Oct. 22 -- read on for the initial list of dates.
Animal Collective are readying the release of ‘Monkey Been to Burn Town,’ a remix EP featuring reworked versions of tunes from their 2012 full-length ‘Centipede Hz.’ They’ve also added a bunch of dates to their upcoming summer tour with Dan Deacon, including a newly announced show in Portland, Maine, on July 11.
Bob Dylan's so-called Never Ending Tour rolls on, and the folk-rock icon has snapped up both Wilco and My Morning Jacket to open a six-week stretch of North American summer tour dates. The stacked triple bill hits the road June 26 in West Palm Beach, Fla., and the trek is scheduled through an Aug. 8 date in Mountain View, Calif. Check out the full itinerary below.
Passion Pit experienced a glitch in their touring plans last year after releasing 'Gossamer,' since frontman Michael Angelakos suffers from bipolar disorder and needed to table his commitments in order to address his personal issues. With all of that in the rearview, the Pit are getting back on the road this spring and summer.
Guitarist/vocalist Tim Armstrong will double up his workload this summer, as his main band, Rancid, embarks on a short but sweet June tour with his other project, the rap-punk supergroup the Transplants. It's only a 10-date trek that hits mostly East Coast cities and a few Canadian outposts, but we're confident that Armstrong can handle playing twice per night! He's indestructible, like the Rancid album from 2003.
You can't keep a good man down! After canceling several dates and then the whole of his North American tour this winter -- the result of some major health issues that included Barrett's esophagus and double pneumonia -- Morrissey has scheduled June concerts in seven cities in Mexico. He'll apparently close things out with a gig at the National Auditorium in Mexico City and then hit other countries in Latin America.
