Dead Can Dance: North American Tour 2012


Dead Can Dance
Dead Can Dance announced today they will be bringing their world tour to 15 cities throughout North America this summer, which includes two nights at the Beacon Theatre in New York City - August 29 and August 30. These will be the first live shows since their hugely successful sold out tour in 2005. Tickets go on sale to the public Saturday, March 31 at 9AM via Ticketmaster.

Dead Can Dance will be releasing a new studio album to accompany the tour, which will be their first since Spiritchaser in 1996.

"Myself and Lisa (Gerrard) are genuinely excited to be working together again in the studio, said Brendan Perry. "Writing began for the new album in the Autumn of 2011 and the final recording sessions will take place at Quivvy Studios in Ireland in the early part of this year. It will be a spring album to coincide with both natures reawakening and the group's subsequent rebirth."

In addition to New York City, the 15 cities on their North American itinerary are: Vancouver, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Salta Lake City, Denver, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Nashville, Atlanta and Austin.
