Alternative country musician Neko Case will launch her latest tour of U.S. and Canada this spring to promote an upcoming studio album. The 18-city tour kicks off March 31 at Stubb’s Bar-B-Q in Austin, TX, and is scheduled to wrap April 26 at the State Theatre in Minneapolis, MN.
During the outing, Case will stop for a series of two-nights stands: April 8-9 at 9:30 Club in Washington, DC; April 13-14 at the Nokia Theatre in Times Square of New York, NY; and April 17-18 at Trinity St. Paul’s Centre in Toronto, ON.
Case will be touring behind the March 3 release of “Middle Cyclone,” her eighth studio album. She made her solo debut in 1997 with “The Virginian,” and her career has since been defined by a do-it-yourself ethic and strict demand for creative control.
Over the course of her career, Case has recorded with various bands, usually only for a year before moving on. Her longest-lasting side-project has been with The New Pornographers, which debuted in 2000 with the release of “Mass Romantic.” In 2007, the band released its fourth studio album, the critically acclaimed “Challengers.”
Case was last on the road in late summer 2008 for a 20-city tour of the U.S. and Canada. Though billed as a solo tour, the jaunt featured two full-band performances with Case’s most recent side project, the New Pornographers.
