Yesterday Apollo 18 published a draft of their upcoming US tour schedule and it’s looking good for fans in the South. Not that many details yet but residents (and visitors of) Dallas, Austin, San Marcos, San Antonio, New Orleans, Houston, Denton, and Hot Springs will all get a chance to catch the world’s best rock band in action.
As mentioned previously the Austin dates come from Apollo 18 playing this year’s SXSW. Details on that here.
The Hot Springs date is Mars 24, where Apollo 18 will be one of the headlining acts at The Valley of the Vapors Independent Music Festival.
If you’re in Korea and want to show them some support, please consider attending the Apollo 18 US tour fundraiser show on February 26. If you happen to be living in any of the places that A18 come by, or know anybody that does, please think if there’s any possibility you can help them find a place to stay – they’re all super nice guys that make for a great drinking company. Promise!
To find out more about their plans and expectations for the tour, check out Indieful ROK’s interview from last month.
I was sad to read that they’re not coming to CMF like the other Korean groups, but I’m glad to see they’re playing some big shows! Hopefully I can talk someone into getting some merchandise for me…
Maybe next year :) I’m hoping they’ll gain enough buzz to get out into the world again soon ^^
For Kaz: If you are sad about the band not playing in Toronto in March, look in the “bio” section in the top corner of A18’s Twitter. Maybe it will make you happy …
