Gotye / Kimbra @ Webster Hall - 3/27/2012
New huge stars from Down Under, Gotye & Kimbra brought their sold out tour to Webster Hall in NYC last night (3/27), two nights after they did it at the bigger Terminal 5, and one night after Kimbra played her own small show at Mercury Lounge. Here are some pictures from the Webster show.
The tour, which is currently on its way north towards Canada, will continue west towards Coachella where Gotye will play the two-weekend festival on both April 15 & 22. Right before that, he'll head back to NYC (maybe with Kimbra) to be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on Saturday, April 14th (Josh Brolin is the host). But west coasters take note:
This special TV appearance has caused two changes to the original tour dates. Firstly, the show at The Independent in San Francisco, CA on April 12 has been moved to a bigger venue and rescheduled. You can now see Gotye at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Wednesday, April 18. Tickets for the original date will be honored at the door. The general public can buy tickets on Friday, March 30. Please note that Kimbra will now not be performing at this show due to pre-existing European commitments however joining Gotye as special guest for this date will be fellow Australian singer/songwriter, Missy Higgins.
Also Gotye's show at The Crystal Ballroom in Portland, OR on April 11 has been rescheduled to Monday, April 9. Tickets for the original date will be honored at the door. Kimbra will still appear at this show. Full refunds will be available for those unable to attend the rescheduled shows.
Last but not least, one extra show has just been added to Gotye's North American tour. On April 19, he will perform in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre - L.A Live. Missy Higgins will be special guest on this date - previewing material from a new album she's planning to release over summer. Tickets for this L.A. show will go onsale to the general public on Friday, March 30.
