Pulp Confirm Beginnings of First U.S. Tour in 14 Years
Jarvis Cocker and Co. add dates around Coachella sets
Pulp’s first U.S. show in more than a decade just got a couple of days closer. The reunited Britpop icons have added performances in New York and San Francisco around its previously announced billing at Coachella.
Jarvis Cocker and Pulp’s other original members will play Radio City Music Hall in New York on April 11, two days before their first Coachella set. Pulp also have a set scheduled at the Warfield in San Francisco on April 17, three days before they head back to Indio, California for Coachella round two.
The Radio City Music Hall show marks the first New York performance by the wryly observational “Common People” and “Disco 2000″ tunesmiths since June 16, 1998. The San Francisco performance will reportedly be Pulp’s first since May 21, 1996. Help the mother-fucking aged.
Meanwhile, fellow Britpoppers Blur — set to play at the Brit Awards on February 21 — continue to tease the idea of a reunion album. Producer William Orbit has sent out tweets that appear to indicate he’s been working the band’s members again. If and when Blur makes the announcement official, can we all pretend we’re surprised?
