The Party Continues
Having just wrapped its first tour in seven years, World Party has announced a new leg of shows that will keep the band on the road through late August.
The Karl Wallinger-led group will appear at Tennesee’s Bonnaroo Music Festival June 16, then head out for a series of theatre and festival dates. Shows in Michigan, Minnesota and New York are booked for July, with several weeks of West Coast gigs to follow in August.
They’ll head east by the end of the month, wrapping at Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis, Md., August 31.
The British band went on hiatus after Wallinger suffered a near-fatal aneurysm in 2001. The singer/songwriter made his return to the stage this spring with a much-heralded performance at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.
