With 2013 around the corner, Passion Pit is excited to announce a headlining North American tour in February and March with special guests Matt & Kim. The tour starts on February 5th in Norfolk, VA, three nights before the bands previously announced headlining debut at Madison Square Garden. The tour continues with a hometown show in Boston, MA on February 9th at the Agganis Arena, before heading west for theatre and arena shows in Denver, Salt Lake City and more â€“ making this the band’s largest headlining tour to date! See the full list of dates below.
The band recently completed a three night stand at Washington D.C.â€™s 9:30 Club, where the Washington Times raved that â€œPassion Pit is the personification of pop music.â€ While in D.C., Michael Angelakos and Ian Hultquist from the band stopped by the NPR offices to perform a Tiny Desk Concert. After a triumphant return to the stage this fall, Passion Pit will finish out this year with a small European tour and a series of U.S. radio dates.
