Animal Collective Announces Sung Tongs World Tour
Animal Collective have detailed their upcoming Sung Tongs World Tour. The global run of shows will present complete performances of the band’s 2004 album Sung Tongs.
Just as the record originally issued on May 3, 2004 by FatCat Records does, the Sung Tongs Tour will feature two of the four members of Animal Collective: Avey Tare and Panda Bear. Animal Collective previously performed Sung Tongs in full once before at the December 2017 Pitchfork 21st birthday party in New York City.
The Sung Tongs World Tour begins with a European leg that starts on June 12 in London. Additional overseas stops in June include Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon and Athens. Panda Bear and Avey Tare will resume the tour stateside on July 20 in New York. Animal Collective’s U.S. leg continues in July in Washington D.C., Austin, Denver, Chicago, Seattle, Oakland and Los Angeles. Laraaji will open the NYC and DC shows while Lonnie Holley will support the remaining U.S. dates.
A presale (password: sungtongs18) begins Tuesday, March 20 at 12 p.m. local venue time. General ticket sales start Friday, March 23 at 10 a.m. venue time. Full details are available here.
