Girl Talk Announces First North American Tour In 8 Years
Joey Kennedy – Talk Time
Girl Talk announced his first U.S. tour in nearly a decade on Monday.
Groundbreaking producer Girl Talk announced his first North American tour in eight years on Monday.
Best known for his electric live shows and trilogy of sample-based albums – Night Ripper (2006), Feed the Animals (2008) and All Day (2010) – Girl Talk will hit the road beginning at Cleveland’s House of Blues on April 29.
He’ll hit clubs in several major U.S. cities for the next month, including Chicago’s Metro (May 3), Los Angeles’ Echoplex (May 15) and Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club (May 22), before wrapping with his previously announced performance at New York’s Governors Ball on June 7.
Though Girl Talk has performed more rarely in recent years, he’s remained active; in 2019, he played U.S. festivals including Bunbury, Bonnaroo and Clusterfest.
Girl Talk’s most recent Pollstar Boxoffice report is for a sold-out 2017 show at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works, where he moved 1,435 tickets and grossed $35,533. In 2011, Girl Talk secured a slot on Pollstar‘s Top 200 North American Tours chart, grossing $3.6 million; among his touring highlights that year was a sold-out two-night run at Chicago’s Congress Theater, where Girl Talk sold 9,000 tickets and grossed $269,000.
The producer appeared on Pollstar‘s cover in 2007.
Tickets for Girl Talk’s 2020 tour go on sale later this week. Find the list of dates below.
