It’s always a blast to see a musician play his hometown. The crowd is unusually welcoming, the audience filled with friends and family, familiar surroundings, and the electricity and architecture of our great city of Chicago. Andrew Bird’s “Are You Serious” tour will bring him home to play a summer XRT show at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park Sept. 7th, 7pm start time. Bonus track… a $1 from every ticket sold on the US tour will be donated to prevent gun violence and build safer communities. A digital download of Bird’s new album, Are You Serious, is included with every ticket you order for this show. Tickets still available, grab yours fast!
Check out this hysterical interview where Andrew talks to with Evelyn Llewellyn, about the upcoming tour in support of his new record “Are You Serious” featuring Fiona Apple.
