They Might Be Giants announced the rescheduled tour dates for the shows originally postponed due to COVID last year. Their extensive tour is officially in the books again; they will travel from coast to coast in the U.S. (and one show in Vancouver) for their BOOK tour. The tour is set up with breaks in between, so it will last from June 2022 to May of 2023 with breaks sizable between shows.
The multimedia project is composed of an art book and album made possible by an impressive collaboration between graphic designer Paul Sahre, street photographer Brian Karlsson and, of course, TMBG band members.
The project was a success; the majority of the shows have sold out. The shows with remaining tickets as of Feb. 26 are in Portland, Maine; North Adams, Mass.; Tulsa, Okla.; Houston, Texas and Austin, Texas.
TMBG is made up of eclectic artists with a variety of achievements in their resume. They are two-time Grammy winners, and BOOK debuted at #1 Current Alternative Albums, #1 Current Rock Albums and #88 Billboard 200 charts. They were also nominated for a Tony Award for their musical writing for SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical.
Their last performance was at The Pageant in St. Louis, Mo. in May of 2020, right at the beginning of the pandemic era. Concert-goers far and wide have missed live music in the last two years; TMBG is sure to be welcomed with open arms even if fans have to wait till a later date to see them.
