Damon Albarn Announces Mini U.S. Tour
By Kevin Rutherford
Today (April 28), the Blur frontman and Gorillaz mastermind revealed multiple international tour dates in support of his first solo release, Everyday Robots, out tomorrow (April 29) this side of the Atlantic Ocean, Pitchfork reports.
The jaunt includes seven different shows in the U.S., the first and last of which come at major festivals. Albarn kicks off his trek June 6 at Governors Ball in New York, running through five subsequent dates over a little more than a week before closing shop June 14 at Bonnaroo in Tennessee.
Prior to the release of Everyday Robots, Albarn took to a local English pub outside of London last week, shouting a rollicking “Parklife” from Blur’s album of the same name while various pubgoers joined him. Parklife turned 20 years old last week.
