Icelandic band Sigur Ros heads for Europe this summer. After a June run of U.S. shows, look for the band in places like Lausanne, Switzerland (July 9), Zurich, Switzerland (July 14), Cologne, Germany (August 11), Helsinki, Finland (August 24) and St. Petersburg, Russia (August 26). In between the band’s July and August Euro dates, the band slips Down Under for a few Australian gigs such as their West Melbourne appearance on August 1, and their Moore Park show on August 2.
Peter Mulvey updates this afternoon with new shows for Wisconsin, Nebraska and, well, Wisconsin. Which shouldn’t come as a surprise since the artist is from Milwaukee. Particulars include July 20 in Sheboygan, WI, at the Midsummer Festival Of The Arts; November 21 in Hastings, NE, at the Listening Room and February 7, 2009 in Wausau, WI, at Shoulder To Shoulder.
Very funny guy Lewis Black keeps adding dates. Mr. Black’s latest additions include July 19 in Uncasville, CT; August 28 in Milwaukee, WI; September 28 in Fort Wayne, IN, and January 3 & 4 in Airway Heights, WA.
