Beck Adds New Tour Dates
Credit: Peter HapakFresh off his surprise Album of the Year Grammy win, Beck has announced three new headlining tour dates. The new dates will take place May 16 in Memphis, Tennessee; May 19 in North Charleston, South Carolina; and May 20 in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Tickets for these stops will go on sale February 20 at 10 a.m. local time. Visit Beck.com for all ticket info.
Beck’s new tour dates will be sandwiched between two festival appearances: the Hangout Festival in Alabama, and Boston Calling.
At last week’s Grammys, Beck’s album Morning Phase stunned prognosticators by taking home the prize for Album of the Year over heavily-favored pop stars Beyonce and Sam Smith. Rapper Kanye West took the stage and appeared ready to interrupt Beck’s speech — à la the 2009 Taylor Swift VMAs incident — but decided against it. Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler has offered his thoughts on the incident be creating a mashup between Beck’s “Loser” and West’s “Jesus Walks.”
Here are all of Beck’s current tour dates:
5/15-17 — Gulf Shores, AL, Hangout Music Fest
5/16 — Memphis, TN, Mud Island Amphitheater
5/19 — North Charleston, SC, North Charleston Performing Arts Center
5/20 — Charlottesville, VA, nTelos Wireless Pavilion
5/22 — Boston, MA, Boston Calling Festival
