are Yeah Yeah Yeahs playing Kings Theatre? (update: yes, LA too)
Yeah Yeah Yeahs teased something Fever To Tell-related earlier today, and Bowery Presents since posted the above Instagram of Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre with “Date With The Night” and November 7 written on the marquee. “Date With The Night” is of course the name of the first single off Fever To Tell, and November 7 is just a few days before the New York band have to leave home to play Texas festival Sound on Sound. Are YYYs squeezing in a hometown show before SOS? Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Nick Zinner posted the same picture!
If they are playing Kings that day, it’ll be their first proper NYC show since Barclays Center in 2013. Last year, they made a one-off appearance at the afterparty for the premiere of the new Mick Rock documentary.
YYYs’ only other announced date is LA’s The Growlers Six in October.
The band’s Fever To Tell-related tease included the release of an instrumental song called “Phone Jam,” which may or may not be an unreleased track from 2002. Listen below.
UPDATE 2: They did indeed announce a remastered, expanded reissue, and they also appear to be teasing an LA show.
UPDATE e: LA and NYC shows confirmed! Pre-order the new reissue today to get presale tickets. The general on-sale begins Friday (9/29). Those are their only headlining shows of 2017.
