Peter Bjorn and John are giving their fans some more this fall when they kick off their “All You Can Eat Tour” – a six week trek that finds the Swedes spending some quality time with their fans as they embark on a city by city exploration. Their longest US run to date, the tour kicks off in Chicago, IL on August 24th with the first of their mini-residences and will end on October 8th in San Francisco, CA with the last. They’ll also set up camp in Toronto, New York and Los Angeles for extended stays with several other stops along the way – complete dates below.
The “All You Can Eat Tour” comes on the heels of their most recent sold out US headlining that was met with unbridled excitement. The Boston Herald said, “PB&J delivered frenetic, guitar-stoked rock ’n’ roll…” and the Portland Tribune raved “…Peter, Bjorn & John put on a show that made the audience move, sing, shout and scream as they realized they were seeing something rare – the birth of a world class band…” and went on the call them “…one of the most compelling bands on the circuit right now….”
The Spring and Fall tours are both in support of the band’s latest full-length studio album – Gimme Some – that was released on March 29th on StarTime International to praise from the press including SPIN who said the new album has “…punk-octane velocity…,” Maxim who described it as “…addictively catchy indie rock,” and ELLE who wrote that Gimme Some is “a back to basics collection of rock and punk infused tracks that make them a top contender for best album of the year.” The new release also earned them a performance on Conan as well as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and found the band doing a session for Sirius XMU where they also co-hosted for a week and while on tour they performed live for NPR’s World Café, KEXP and WNYC’s Soundcheck among others.
With an amazing new album and a sold-out US headlining tour already under their belts this year, Peter Bjorn and John are thrilled to give fans some more when they embark on their “All You Can Eat” tour this fall. The city by city exploration will offer US fans a unique opportunity to see the band play in whichever venue on whichever night suits them best. Confirmed dates below…
