Glass Animals Embark on North American Headline tour

Glass Animals will launch their third North American headline tour of 2017 tomorrow, September 16, at Seattle's WaMu Theater. The run includes a show at Los Angeles' historic Shrine Auditorium (September 21) and the band's first concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City (October 5). Additional East Coast dates include shows at Agganis Arena in Boston (October 7) and the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC (October 8 & 9). Glass Animals will cap off the outing with a performance at Austin City Limits Festival on October 14.

The band, which was shortlisted for the 2017 Mercury Prize, continues to pull out all the stops during its live performances. DIY Magazine, reviewing a 2017 show in London, said, "From the second frontman Dave Bayley bounds on stage with limitless energy, Brixton Academy is theirs, and the Oxford quartet proceed to give it one hell of a party." The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette noted, "[the] band has honed its act at all the major festivals -- Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, etc. -- and it showed in the high energy that began as soon as it hit the stage with 'Life Itself,' the percussive dance track that opens the new, second album, 'How to Be a Human Being.'"

A broken ankle couldn't keep Bayley from crowd surfing during the band's main stage set at Coachella, cited as a festival highlight by Billboard, which praised Glass Animals' "dynamic rendition" of "Gooey." In July, a storm briefly interrupted their sold-out show at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre, but the band returned to the stage and got the crowd dancing again. Local NBC affiliate 9 News observed, "You always take the risk of rain or shine at Red Rocks, but Glass Animals made it worth every drop." Their riveting live shows have contributed to Glass Animals' incredible global growth, resulting in sold-out excursions throughout the U.K., Europe and Australia.
