Dead Can Dance will tour North and South America on a Spring trek dubbed “A Celebration – Life & Works 1980-2020.”
A U.S./Canada leg launches April 17th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and wraps May 11th in San Diego, California. A brief run of Mexico, Columbia, Peru and Chile continues through late May.
Tickets go on sale starting Friday, October 11th at 10 a.m. ET. Danish singer-songwriter Agnes Obel will join the band on the North American dates and one show in Mexico City.
The experimental Australian act, featuring principal members Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry, recently issued their ninth studio LP, 2018’s Dionysus, which followed 2012’s Anastasis.
After issuing Dionysus, the duo spoke to Rolling Stone about their legacy and unconventional sonic textures. “Dead Can Dance has never been something commercial,” Gerrard said. “It’s always been an olive branch of friendship, something to reach out to others, so they don’t feel alone on the planet. Dionysus is just another piece of the puzzle to be solved.”
