The Bad Plus Announce Winter Tour

United States
English
10th Nov 2010 — The Bad Plus announce their U.S. tour in support of Never Stop, their new release on eOne Music. The tour extends from December 2nd through January 9th, 2011 and includes what has become a yearly tradition: a six night New Year‘s Eve run at New York City‘s fabled Village Vanguard. Featured stops along the way include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis, San Diego and St. Louis.

The trio toured throughout Australia and Europe immediately following a record release show at New York City‘s Bowery Ballroom earlier this fall about which The New York Times declared, “it‘s possible that they've never sounded better.”

Released to great acclaim -- “deadly cohesive,” said the Los Angeles Times -- Never Stop marks the 10th Anniversary of The Bad Plus, and is the band‘s first album of all-originals. Currently on over 200 radio stations in the U.S. & Canada, Never Stop spent five weeks at #1 on the CMJ Jazz Chart--where it remains in the Top Five."
