Beck U.S. Tour Dates

BECK ANNOUNCES U.S. TOUR DATES
NEW ALBUM MODERN GUILT IN STORES NOW / VINYL EDITION TO BE RELEASED JULY 22

Beck
Beck has announced a series of U.S. tour dates to follow his previously announced summer festival appearances. The announcement comes on the heels of the release of Beck's new album Modern Guilt, which Beck co-produced with Danger Mouse. Modern Guilt has already been declared a more-than-worthy addition to Beck's discography - USA Today called the album "retro-contemporary fusion for the ages," while Time calls the music "a joy... giddy retro-futurism."

As always, Beck's creativity extends into the presentation of his music. The vinyl edition of Modern Guilt, which will be in stores July 22, includes download codes for high-fidelity (320 kbps) MP3s produced from a playback of the vinyl master. In other words, the first MP3 starts with a needle drop, and the ten MP3s will sound like a vinyl playback. Leave it to Beck to invent the first mobile turntable.

See below for Beck's U.S. summer/fall tour itinerary. Tickets for these new dates will go on sale the weekend of July 18/19, except for Kansas City which will go on sale Monday July 21. See Beck.com for more information on ticket sales.

Beano..how could you ruin that beautiful steal your face with a Redskin logo....It would look much more appropriate with a GIANTS logo in the center....

He's from out west and the west doesnt get nearly as many good shows as the east coast so hes showing them some love. Think if you lived in New Mexico how stoked you'd be!

Beck is great, but it sucks that he's having MGMT open for him. I live in AZ and saw them for free a few months ago and they suck donkey balls! I don't exactly get what the hype is for this band and why the magazine journalists attempt to compare them with great acts such as Flaming Lips! Good thing i'm going to see Beck at Outside Lands w/ Radiohead instead!

Oh man, I didn't realize MGMT was opening. You're right, they are way overhyped. I saw them at Bonnaroo and was stoked to see them... Probably the only show I've ever seen that I regret doing so. At least Battles came on after and exorcised their demons for me.

Anyone at Outside Lands in SF on Friday is in for a sick one. Beck, Radiohead, Black Keys, Lyrics Born, etc.!! First show ever after dark in Golden Gate Park no less. Can't wait
