Pussy Riot Plot North American Tour Benefiting Planned Parenthood

Russian collective shares teaser featuring new music

Russian punk collective Pussy Riot will embark on a North American tour next March, with a portion of ticket sales benefitting local Planned Parenthood affiliates around the country.

The run kicks off March 13th at 1720 LA in Los Angeles and includes stops in cities like Portland, Denver, Chicago, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Houston before wrapping April 15th at the Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix, Arizona. The band also has a May 19th date scheduled at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto.

Pussy Riot shared a short teaser to accompany the tour announcement. The clip boasts a mix of live footage and old news clips recounting the band’s famous 2012 “punk prayer” protest in Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savior. The trailer also features a snippet of new music featuring a rock-drill bass line and keening guitar.

Pussy Riot will partner with PLUS1 throughout their North American tour to ensure that $1 from each ticket sold will go to local Planned Parenthood affiliates in each city they play. Ticket information is available on the collective’s website.

In September, Pussy Riot released a new song, “1937,” protesting local Moscow parliament elections and calling for the release of various political prisoners. In July, they shared “Black Snow,” which took on Russian president Vladimir Putin’s lax and destructive environmental policies.
