Peter Bjorn and John

"Swedish indie pop stars Peter Bjorn and John ("Young Folks") will perform at the W New York as part of W Hotels' WonderLust Live Concert Series. The performance marks the band's first performance in the U.S. this year in anticipation of the official release of their new album, Living Thing, which will hit stores on March 31st via Almost Gold Recordings/StarTime International.

The performance is closed to the public but a special W Wonderlust Live Package is available for both local music fans and out-of-towners looking to book the ultimate concert experience. Available in limited quantities, the package, which must be booked with a MasterCard card, includes 2 tickets to the performance, a meet-and-greet with the band, an exclusive W Hotels/Sony Music All Access VIP Gift Bag, 2 cool cocktails, a 3 PM late checkout, and a Fantastic Suite."

The W Hotel show is this Tuesday, March 17th at 8pm. The package for two tickets, the room, etc... will cost you just $549, OR it will cost you nothing to see the show (and meet the band and get a signed CD) if you win the contest we're running. Details on how to win below.

After the W show, Peter Bjorn and John head to Austin to play a bunch of shows at SXSW before returing to Europe until April when they kick of a North American tour with Chairlift at Coachella. That is the tour that brings them back to NYC at the end of April for shows at both Webster Hall and Music Hall of Williamsburg (tix). That tour ends May 2nd in Washington DC, and they are scheduled to be at Sasquatch in Washington at the end of that same month.

Fast forward to July 24th. PB & J will return to North America for yet another tour, but this time as opener on the Depeche Mode stadium tour. That includes the August 3rd show at Madison Square Garden that goes on regular sale today at 10AM
