FAITH NO MORE
Faith No More are playing their first shows in five years in 2020, and they continue to gradually add dates. After announcing a few Europe festivals, they added UK headline dates. All are listed here.
MILLENNIUM TOUR w/ OMARION, BOW WOW, YING YANG TWINS, SOULJA BOY & MORE
With 2020 around the corner, the turn of the millennium is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary so Y2K-era nostalgia unsurprisingly in full effect. That includes this nostalgia tour co-headlined by Omarion and Bow Wow that also features 2000s hip hop and R&B stars Ying Yang Twins, Lloyd, Sammie, Pretty Ricky, and Soulja Boy. (Earlier this year, the same tour happened and was headlined by a reunion from Omarion’s former group B2K.) All dates and tickets (including NYC’s Hulu Theater at MSG on 3/6 and Newark’s Prudential Center on 3/22) here.
KAYO DOT / PSALM ZERO
NYC experimental/metal/more band Kayo Dot have announced a 2020 tour supporting this year’s Blasphemy and they’ll be joined by fellow NYC experimental/metal/more band Psalm Zero. That great double bill ends with a show in their shared hometown on 3/22 at Mercury Lounge. All dates here.
London dream-folk singer A.A. Williams, who put out her self-titled debut EP on Holy Roar earlier this year and a collaborative song with MONO this past weekend, has a bunch of touring plans. She’s playing one of MONO’s 20th anniversary shows in London this month, which falls in the midst of her Europe tour with Cult of Luna and Brutus. In 2020, she’ll play her debut headline show, and she also is opening Sisters of Mercy’s tour and Nordic Giants’ tour.
THE SISTERS OF MERCY
Speaking of…Andrew Eldritch, Doktor Avalanche and the rest of Sisters of Mercy haven’t visited the U.S. and Canada in a long time but continue to tour just about everywhere else, and they’ll be out in Europe and the UK in March (some of those dates are with the above-mentioned A.A.Williams). Head here for all dates.
Jazz great Kamasi Washington playing Wilco’s Sky Blue Sky festival in Mexico in Januaray, and then going on a headlining tour.
