Alabama Shakes at Central Park Summerstage in June (more by Chris La Putt)
Alabama Shakes

Alabama Shakes have been having a pretty great year. In only a matter of months, they went from having some out of nowhere success to selling out Bowery and Music Hall to filling a free Central Park show to capacity, and then appearing on Fallon right after. Now they've announced another tour which brings them back to NYC for a headlining show at Terminal 5 on October 4. The tour is being supported by Fly Golden Eagle. A pre-sale begins Wednesday (7/11) at noon and Tickets for the T5 show go on sale to the general public on Friday (7/13) at noon.

The band are also set to perform on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on August 13.

A list of all dates and a video below...

See how long this lasts. PR only takes you so far

The album was being sold in Starbucks; maybe they locked in the Regina Spektor/Muppets Soundtrack demo.

A mediocore band getting a giant push by the music industry. Just looking forward to them fading back into obscurity when the industry stops pushing.

Not really sure how that could be perceived as racist, 4:46. Elitist perhaps, but not racist, unless southerners have deemed themselves their own race by now.

They're awesome love, but at the end of the day, still have no memorable songs.

Haters. How do you get up in the morning, carrying around all that negativity?

Being negative is AWESOME, loser.

Don't be surprised if you see them playing SNL the weekend after they play T5.

Saw them last night at T5. Meh. I like the album but my worst fears were realized - they are a borderline wedding band. No rapport between band members. Just play the hits with faux excitement. Wasn't into it. The crowd was crazy for them, though.
