They Might Be Giants expand ‘Flood’ 30th anniversary tour, add 3rd NYC show
They Might Be Giants will be spending some of 2020 celebrating the 30th anniversary of their album Flood on tour, and they’ve added more dates since we lasted posted about it, including stops in Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Chicago, Providence, New Haven, and Madison, WI. They’ve also added a third NYC show, happening March 14 at Bowery Ballroom. (The 1/11 and 2/8 Bowery shows are sold out.) Tickets for the new Bowery date go on sale Friday, October 11 at noon with a Citi cardmember presale starting Wednesday (10/9) at 10 AM. Here’s more about the Flood shows:
In honor of the album that made them an international act, They Might Be Giants is celebrating Flood’s 30th anniversary in 2020 by performing the album, in its entirety, on stages in select cities across the US. The show is “an evening with” and TMBG will play two full sets with their barnstorming live band featuring the show-stopping Curt Ramm on trumpet. How will it be presented? In sequence, in reverse sequence, alphabetical, or mixed into additional repertoire? It could be different on any given night. But, in addition to Flood, the song selection in the “evening with” show will span the band’s entire career from early favorites to brand new tracks, as well as the live improvisations that have become a highlight of TMBG shows.
All dates are listed, along with a stream of Flood and the “Birdhouse in Your Soul” video, below.
TMBG are also reissuing their 1986 debut album on vinyl.
