Gogol Bordello Sets North American Summer Tour

Gogol Bordello 2023

Gogol Bordello returns to the road for a North American summer tour, kicking off in Kansas City, Missouri, July 11 and winding down in Washington, D.C.’s newest concert venue, The Atlantis, on Aug. 5. 

The international punk band is led by Ukrainian frontman Eugene Hütz, who continues to be a “flagbearer of the cultural resistance,” according to CBC Radio, and the band’s latest album, Solidaritine, takes Gogol Bordello back to its hardcore roots. 

According to Hütz, “Solidaritine is the substance that unlocks our empathy and our full human potential … May this be your punky uplift for our packed with troubled times.”

Artist presale tickets go onsale today, April 12, at 10 a.m. local time with local presales beginning Thursday, April 13 and general onsale Friday, April 14, also at 10 a.m. local.

Since the band’s genesis in the Lower East Side punk-rock scene of 1999, Gogol Bordello has been riling up audiences with an inimitable patchwork of raucous punk and Eastern European Gypsy-swing. 

Hütz has also appeared in art house films such as Liev Schreiber’s Everything Is Illuminated with Elijah Wood and Filth and Wisdom helmed by Madonna. Gogol Bordello has lit up stages around the world alongside System of a Down, Primus, Rancid, Dropkick Murphys, dueted with Regina Spektor and cut albums with legends Rick Rubin and Steve Albini. More collaborations to come.

Gogol Bordello has been active in efforts to support Ukraine in its war with Russia, which surpassed its first year in February. In March 2022, the band led a benefit concert at City Winery in New York City with friends including Patti Smith, Suzanne Vega, Matisyahu, Craig Finn & Franz Nicolay (The Hold Steady), Jesse Malin, Lady Lamb, Marc Robert (O.A.R.), and Stephin Merritt (The Magnetic Fields).

It was a fitting endeavor from Hütz and Gogol Bordello, which takes the name “Gogol” from Nikolai Gogol, a classical Ukrainian writer. Hütz has also co-starred with actor Elijah Wood in the film “Everything Is Illuminated,” which focuses on the Nazi purges in Ukraine during World War II.
