Yann at Irving Plaza in 2009 (more by Leia Jospe)
Yann Tiersen

French artist Yann Tiersen, who is especially known for his well-received Amelie soundtrack, released his sixth album, Dust Lane, in October via ANTI- Records. Tiersen played the "Concert Hall" in NYC around the time of its release, and is now set to return for a larger tour that will have him back in NYC for two more shows. He plays Highline Ballroom on February 18th (tickets) and 19th (tickets). The full North American tour kicks off and ends in Los Angeles, stretching from the end of January until middle March, and it is promised that "the band will be bringing Dust Lane to life with synths, electric guitars, violins and drums in an energetic and powerful show."

All dates, some video, and the latest entries from Tiersen's video tour diary are below.
