Vulfpeck Announces 15 Dates For 2017 Tour

first_imgVulfpeck has only hit the road for a continuous amount of time once before, in support of their Sleepify efforts, in which the band used Spotify to raise funds for an admission-free tour by releasing a ten-track silent album. Their growing cyber fan base was instructed to play the album on repeat overnight, which generated $20,000 in royalties and ultimately funded Vulfpeck’s first and only real tour in 2014. Since then, the band has made clear that they are not interested in spending time on the road, but rather to play big shows in various cities.Today, the Michigan-bred quartet announced their first, real tour in 2017. They’ll be heading to Minneapolis, Chicago, Toronto, Ann Arbor, Portland, Denver, Los Angeles, Santa Ana, and San Francisco from May 1 through June 7. This is a truly historical moment, as the band who never toured will now take their most recent release A Beautiful Game on the road with them for what is sure to be an incredible run. We can’t help but hope that fellow Vulf collaborators like Cory Wong, Antwaun Stanley, and Joey Dosik will be there too.VULFPECK SHOWS:01 MAY 2017 First AveMinneapolis, MN02 MAY 2017 First AveMinneapolis, MN04 MAY 2017 MetroChicago, IL05 MAY 2017 MetroChicago, IL08 MAY 2017 Lee’s PalaceToronto, ON09 MAY 2017 Lee’s PalaceToronto, ON12 MAY 2017 Michigan TheaterAnn Arbor, MI26 MAY 2017 Crystal BallroomPortland, OR30 MAY 2017 Ogden TheatreDenver, CO31 MAY 2017 Red RocksMorrison, CO02 JUN 2017 The RegentLos Angeles, CA03 JUN 2017 The RegentLos Angeles, CA04 JUN 2017 The ObservatorySanta Ana, CA06 JUN 2017 The FillmoreSan Francisco, CA07 JUN 2017 The FillmoreSan Francisco, CAFor more information and tickets, head to the band’s website.
