Tune-Yards confirms 2015 shows, WoW fest appearance

By | Published on Wednesday 29 October 2014


The indescribable Tune-Yards, aka Merrill Garbus and friends, are flying in with the spring next year to play a sequence of UK shows as Tune-Yards, so now you know.

And if you still don’t know what Tune-Yards are, a good way to find out is to watch the band’s appearance (playing ‘Water Fountain’) on last night’s ‘Later… With Jools Holland’:

Falling in behind Garbus et al’s reigning LP ‘Nikki Nack’, the tour starts on 3 Mar at Vicar Street in Dublin, and will feature a visit to the London-based Southbank Centre’s Women Of The World Festival, which promotes gender equality and celebrates female achievers. That show’s on 5 Mar, by the way.

And what follows is that reiterated in the full list of live dates, tickets for which go on sale tomorrow at 10am:

3 Mar: Dublin, Vicar Street
5 Mar: London, Southbank Centre
6 Mar: Liverpool, Anglican Cathedral
8 Mar: Gateshead, Sage
9 Mar, Glasgow, Art School
