Louis XIV is currently in the midst of a major North American tour alongside Editors and Hot Hot Heat with dates running through a Valentine’s Day finale at Las Vegas’ House of Blues on February 14. ”

Louis XIV spent much of 2005 and 2006 on the road, knocking out audiences in North America, Europe and Asia as headliners, festival show-stealers, and special guests to such like-minded outfits as Hot Hot Heat and The Killers. The band capped off its endless tour in mid-2006 by sharing the stage with David Bowie and Alicia Keys at the Keep A Child Alive Foundation’s annual “Black Ball” fundraising concert at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom.
