[CONCERT NEWS] 3 “World Tours” You Won’t See In Philly

So on the heels of their huge Grammy success Canadian indie-Rockers Arcade Fire announced a new tour calling it a “World Tour.” While it’s not really a world tour to say the least the band ignores the east coast of North America and does only a small part of Europe ignoring the rest of the actual world. The Black Keys who had a successful year also announce a world tour that also ignores the east coast  unless you live in Buffalo which is almost part of Canada. TV on the Radio’s latest album (due out soon) warrants a new tour and their tour is so short there is only a Baltimore, New York and Boston shows on the northern east coast that makes it impossible to see. Tour dates after the jump.

    it seems more and more that “world tour” means: we’re going to at least 2 countries

    • Angerbanjo

      which if you think about it tends to be depressing, but living in America it doesn’t matter as much but it all depends upon what part of the country you live in. as a band you would want to reach out to all your fans, understandably if you did a tour in the previous year and hit all these big places your slightly exempt. i know arcade fire toured extensively following the suburbs but this is kind of a depressing victory lap to say the least
