After playing twice at Coachella, The Hives are stopping in NYC for a tiny show at The Studio at Webster Hall on Thursday (4/26) before heading back overseas. Tickets for the studio show sold out very quickly, but we’re happy to say that we got our hands on a few more pairs, so we’re giving away three more pairs of tickets in addition to the ten pairs we gave away to contest winners last week. Details on how to enter to win tickets are below.
If you weren’t able to score tickets to the Studio show, you’ll probably have an easier chance of grabbing some when The Hives return to the US for a string of East Coast dates in late June, including another stop in NYC at Terminal 5 on June 22nd. Tickets go on AMEX AND fan presale at noon on 4/25 (fan presale password = “lexhives”) (sound familiar?) and regular sale on Friday (4/27) at noon.
In other news, The Hives appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (4/24 at midnight), and you can check out the band performing their new songs “Go Right Ahead” and Wait A Minute” from their forthcoming Lex Hives below alongside all tour dates and contest details….
