Echo & The Bunnymen are playing the tiny Mercury Lounge in NYC on October 17th. That's more than a month before they're back in town to play the much larger Hammerstein Ballroom as part of their North American tour in support of their new album. Stay tuned for more details.

UPDATE: Tickets are going on sale Friday.

Already another show so I'm guessing an early show? 7pm doors.

That's gonna be awesome. I see they are playing at Great Scott in Boston on the 18th and tickets are $35.00 (sold out). Prolly expect the same with the mercury show.

Nothing to see here kids. I hear Crystal Wolf Brain are playing somewhere in Brooklyn that same night - go see that instead.

this show needs to be for the real fans..maybe an EATB triva question should be asked before entering?

Just an FYl for all the kids showing up with your SLRs. Ian prefers non-flash photography due to his eyes being light sensative. I know you'll wanna go crazy with hundreds of photos but leave it at home.

VP of Sales, you were there in 1974 at the first Suicide practices in a loft in New York City?

"real fans" Ha! By whose standards?

And a trivia contest? Yeah, google won't make that a cinch or anything.

I never want to know you

Why is Merc $30 and Hammerstein $46-78!? Wish I could make the Mercury Lounge Show grrrrrrrrrrr!

"Why is Merc $30 and Hammerstein $46-78!? Wish I could make the Mercury Lounge "

Merc is $30 which is expensive for a band at Mercury because it's a big band in a small venue.

Merc is $30 which is cheaper than Hammerstein because it always works out that way. The bigger and shittier the venue, the more expensive ticket. It's backwards logic to the fan, but makes sense from a logistics point of view because the bigger shows are so much more expensive to put on.

@4:55...you haven't heard of them? get with it dude. They played a show in their drummer's closet just last week.

Posted by zimbo | September 29, 2009 5:31 PM

E&tB played the Merc in '97 too, right before Evergreen came out, back when Les was still in the band. Fun show.

Posted by bill p | September 29, 2009 5:37 PM

this show is so early - and there is another band after - set will be short.

There was nothing boring about the Radio City Show last year!

If you just want to test out the story creation process, you can go all the way up to 'publish this story' before it goes live on the site.
