Mike Gordon returns to the road with his band on the heels of last year's exhilarating tour supporting Overstep. The tour will begin down south in Charleston, SC and will include stops in St. Louis, Chicago, Philly, Albany, Buffalo, New Haven and more. Mike will perform as part of the Lowell Summer Music Series just outside of Boston and will return to the famed Egg in Albany.
A limited number of tickets are available NOW via a real-time presale at tickets.mike-gordon.com which ends Thursday, April 9 at 5PM ET. Tickets will go on sale to the public beginning Friday, April 10.
The band will make a few debuts along the way including The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, Paper Mill Island in Syracuse and a Father's Day show at the Academy of Music in Northampton. The band's repertoire will be augmented by hints of synesthetic mad scientist gadgetry on and around the stage.
Wired Magazine came out to a show on Mike's March tour last year to experience and talk about the new visual, audio and interactive tech-ification that will be a part of this June run.
"I like the idea of breaking down boundaries," Gordon says. Of the theatrics and curiosities onstage on the Overstep tour, the centerpiece is an interactive piano-like instrument spanning the lip of the stage. At certain points during the show, touch-sensitive panels illuminate; by tapping on them, audience members trigger sounds and jam with the band as it plays. That's just one piece of the big wacky puzzle. To experience it for yourself, catch one of the shows on this tour.
