World-class whistler Andrew Bird is preparing to strike out on a month-long tour in support of his highly-anticipated record, Noble Beast, out January 27 via Fat Possum. The tour will kick off January 28 at New York City’s legendary Carnegie Hall and will hit major cities in the U.S. before concluding in Omaha, NE, February 27.
