Spring 2012: US West Coast, Mexico & South America

14th February 2012

“We return to the land of milk and honey. In our gnarly, battered tour bus we follow the path of the wagon trains. The West Coast calls; sorry East Coast fans – economics. Next time. Been wanting a crack at Coachella for a while and now we have our shot. Then on to South America. Returning to the passion of Mexico, Chile and on to the virgin territories of Brazil and Argentina. Don’t miss us, you never know how much more of this we have in us. Here’s to connection, unity and the fever of dancing naked under a full moon.” – Tim

Spring 2012 will see the band return to the US for a West Coast run of dates around their performances at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, before heading off to Mexico and South America.  Visit the live page for the full itinerary.

“Our last US tour was the first time we tried offering fan access to our sound checks. We approached it really uncertain of what to expect. They ended up being a blast for all of us, and offer an insight into the chaotic inner workings of James. They are spontaneous affairs. You may get to see us butcher songs we haven’t played in years as we attempt to get them match-fit, improvise, pratfall, argue, cover Britney Spears (in honey) or just play some beautiful music. Whatever, I think you will enjoy them and they make the shows better, more intimate; nobody’s asked for their money back so far……” – Tim

We’ll be offering the ever popular VIP Soundcheck packages for all headline shows on this tour. They are strictly limited in number, and the pre-sale for the North American dates commences at 10am local time on Wednesday 15th February, via our US ticketing partner.

The packages include one General Admission floor ticket at GA shows plus early entry – for seated shows: a premium seat location in front 5 rows of the theatre, as well as a unique opportunity to attend 3 songs of the band’s soundcheck, a 15 minute Q & A session (questions from audience after soundcheck), priority early entry into the venue, and a VIP souvenir laminate to take home. (Please note, the VIP packages are non-transferable and you will need photo I.D. to collect your pass at the venue on the day of the show.)
