It was supposed to kick off in March — right as the pandemic was taking hold in the United States — with a pair of hometown shows in Olympia, Washington. In 2021, the band will still launch the tour there, with shows at the Capitol Theater September 2nd and 3rd. The trek will then stretch through the fall, wrapping November 20th at Iron City in Birmingham, Alabama.
Original tickets will be honored at the rescheduled dates, although refunds will be available for those unable to attend.
Prior to the North American run, Bikini Kill will embark on a European tour in May 2021. Those dates will include new shows in Brussels, Paris, Glasgow, and London, tickets for which go on sale Thursday, July 16th, at 10 a.m. local time. Bikini Kill are also set to play Burger Records’ Burger Boogaloo festival in Oakland on July 10th, 2021.
Bikini Kill reunited for a short tour in 2019, marking their first shows together since splitting in 1997. The touring band boasts the original lineup of Kathleen Hanna, Tobi Vail, and Kathi Wilcox, with Erica Dawn Lyle providing additional guitar.
