The 18-date trek will kick off on January 10th at Washington DC’s 9:30 Club and extend into the first week of February, including shows in Boston (1/12), New York City (1/13), Chicago (1/17) and Seattle (1/27) before concluding in Los Angeles on February 3rd. The complete list of dates is included below.
Fan presale tickets will be available at www.passionpitmusic.com beginning tomorrow, November 29th, at 10:00 AM local time, with tickets going on sale to the general public December 1, at 10:00 AM local time. VIP packages for all shows are available at https://www.cidentertainment.com/events/passion-pit-tour-2018 and include both an exclusive soundcheck performance and a Q+A with frontman Michael Angelakos. A portion of all proceeds from VIP packages will be donated to charities promoting mental health awareness.
The four-week jaunt is Passion Pit’s first tour since 2016, and will span new songs and fan-favorites from the band’s diverse catalogue. Joining founder/songwriter/producer Michael Angelakos in the Passion Pit live band will be Chris Hartz, Aaron Harrison Folb and Giuliano Pizzulo. Passion Pit has cultivated one of music’s most devoted audiences in the past decade, with the L.A. Times hailing their live appeal as “transforming studio creations into human-centered performances.” Known for their evocatively calibrated electro-pop, Passion Pit’s albums include their 2009 debut effort Manners, and 2015’s Kindred, among others.
