Beastie Boys float a new batch of shows
New dates continue to trickle out for Beastie Boys’ upcoming North American tour, with new confirmed dates announced for the Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Atlanta areas.
The trio also added a second San Francisco show to its schedule after its first show sold out; details are in the itinerary below.
Tickets for the four new shows will hit the market on Saturday and Sunday (8/14-15), and various ticket pre-sales are being offered before the general on-sale. Information is available at the group’s website.
The New York-bred hip-hop act is backing its new album, “To the 5 Boroughs,” which hit stores in June and debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 album chart. It has since been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, signifying more than a million units shipped. The album–which features the single “Ch-Check it Out”–is the trio’s first since 1998’s “Hello Nasty.”
Beastie Boys–along with Green Day, Kid Rock, Pixies, Sonic Youth, A Tribe Called Quest and many others–are also among the dozens of acts that will appear at this fall’s Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans.
