Semi Precious Weapons announced additional US dates with Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball Tour through 2010! They will be performing all over the country, including a four-night stand at New YorkÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s famed Radio City Music Hall. Scroll down to view their revised list of upcoming tour dates!
As an opening act for Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball Tour 2009-2010, Semi Precious Weapons has already begun receiving kudos for their outrageous live stage show! The Boston Globe raved, “Semi Precious Weapons split the difference between AC/DC and Queen with fierce frontman, Justin Tranter.” The band previously received rave reviews on their recent tours with Ladyhawke and rock icons The Sounds.
Even before they landed on the biggest gig of the season, Semi Precious Weapons turned heads and made music listeners take notice. SPIN described the band as “Like the Sex Pistols….. If they had emerged from Andy Warhol’s downtown Manhattan Factory Scene,” while Rolling Stone said Ã¢â‚¬Å“Tranter is like Adam Ant, T.Rex’s Marc Bolan and Ziggy Stardust wrapped into one, singing lead on AC/DC’s Ã¢â‚¬ËœBack In BlackÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬Â. After being named the “Best Band in NYC” by the 2008 Reader’s Poll, The Village Voice wrote, “Semi Precious Weapons are the most important band in America.”
Last month, Semi Precious Weapons took a break from their busy touring agenda to get back into the studio with producer Jack Joseph Puig (The Rolling Stones, Green Day). Stay tuned for more information about their upcoming album, on which Lady Gaga and Streamline Records President Vincent Herbert will serve as executive producers!
