Andrew Bird graced his hometown of Chicago this summer with one of the best shows I’ve seen all year. He and his band gave an intimate and stellar performance at an XRT show at the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park this summer. He is coming back our way to playing a show on Jan 20th at the AllState Arena with The Lumineers, and Margaret Glaspy. Tickets on sale Oct 7th, and we will have a presale for you more info here. In addition to an already full tour schedule Andrew will be adding 2017 tour dates opening for The Lumineers! Including performances at the New Yorker Festival on Oct 7th, Carnegie Hall on Dec 12th, and Madison Square Gardens on feb 2nd!
Andrew has been hosting special performances in his Living room. A series he is calling “Live From The Great Room” with guest like John C. Reilly, Jim James, Matt Berninger and his most recent guest Slingshot Sue aka Fiona Apple. The two collaborated earlier this year on a duet called “Left handed Kisses” for his new record ‘Are You Serious’ out now.
See ya at the show! – Lara
