PJ HARVEY TO EMBARK ON LONG AWAITED NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

“Rhythms, in the form of militant drum beats, create a boots-on-the-ground feel. Guitars, jagged and fiery, cut through the groove like a fist in the air. And saxophones are raw, dirty and ready to howl… If times are tough, Harvey seemed to be saying, we may as well go down swinging.” – LOS ANGELES TIMES
“The show transfixed thanks to the skill and versatility of all the players, and the synergy that makes Hope Six… so coolly well-rounded. In all its martial glory, the record, and the show by extension, speaks to the many tiny ways that America hides the truth that it’s a territory that subsists on a dream of prosperity many never live to experience. The music could be beguilingly sweet, but the message burned hotly underneath.” – VULTURE
Following yesterday’s Best Alternative Music Album GRAMMY Award nomination for The Hope Six Demolition Project (Vagrant), PJ HARVEY will embark on her most extensive North American headline tour in more than ten years.
Featuring the 10-piece band that accompanied her on this year’s four sold out and critically lauded U.S. dates, PJ Harvey’s return to North America in April of 2017 will be a full run of dates across the continent. Starting in Toronto at the storied Massey Hall on April 13, the tour includes an April 20 stop at Brooklyn Steel and a May 12 stop in Los Angeles at The Greek Theatre. A full list of tour dates can be found below.
