Belle and Sebastian at Williamsburg Waterfront in 2010 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Belle and Sebastian

Scottish indie pop vets Belle and Sebastian haven't gone on a full tour of North America in over two years, but once they were announced as a headliner for this year's Pitchfork Festival, we knew they'd finally be crossing the Atlantic again. And now, a full tour leading up to their slot at that festival has been announced. Many of the dates are with fellow indie legends Yo La Tengo (who just released an album and played NYC), including the NYC date, which is a Celebrate Brooklyn! show at Prospect Park on July 11. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but you can check ticketmaster for updates.

Belle and Sebastian are also the subject of a new "Pitchfork Classic" documentary, which is an hour-long exploration of their 1996 album, If You're Feeling Sinister, directed by RJ Bentler. You can watch that documentary and check out a list of all upcoming dates below...

ive never been near one of these prospect park shows, is it like central park or the waterfront where you can just stand a little further away and still see and hear everything without paying

..what a question....

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2013 12:03 PM

You can hear ok from outside and pleanty place blankets just outside of the gate...seeing not so much.

I bet 12:02 is a cheap date...

They put a fence around the "venue" so you can't see anything, although you can hear decently.

Is it GA or assigned seating? This will be great.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2013 1:43 PM

My guess is GA, that's what their Waterfront show was and I think their last Prospect Park show as well

I bet you download music as well.

In your next lifetime, perhaps you should study more in college instead of doing bong hits and majoring in sociology. Then you might have some money. Loser.

>> It never actually rained, remember ?

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2013 4:26 PM

Yeah... it really didn't rain at all for the Waterfront show. There was just a lovely breeze.

Thankfully pussies like 4:10 stayed home.

Some dude puked all over me at the last waterfront show. I mean, I'd expect that kind of behavior at a Motley Crüe show, but B&S? C'mon!

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2013 6:15 PM

It will almost certainly be a benefit show and will be >$35 bucks. Tickets on sale this Friday!

Anyone on the mailing list have the presale code for the Philly show? Thought I was on the mailing list, but guess not...

Posted by Jeff P | February 20, 2013 5:07 PM

Presale code for Philly is "Banchory" I just got mine, two bands I've wanted to see for a very long time! Came out to 106$ bucks for two tickets tho..

Skyline stage is a weird place..saw Sigur Ros there...get there early or you will be miles away behind some trees...

"Thankfully pussies like 4:10 stayed home."

So...if the pussies stayed home, did anyone make the Belle and Sabastian show?

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2013 12:26 PM
