Eels Kick Off North American Tour in June

Published: 2005-06-01
Led by the man known as E, veteran rockers Eels are set to brave the heat as they slither their way around the globe this summer. Starting things off with a major European tour that began in mid-May, Eels will touch down on home soil when they play San Francisco on June 15th.

The 13-date jaunt, which carries on through the rest of June, will wrap up on the opposite coast, in New York, New York. There are exactly two Canadian cities in Eels' war path, Vancouver followed by Toronto. Tickets for the shows run at $20 to $25, depending where people rest their feet.

This running about is in support of Eels' latest effort, the beautifully titled Blinking Lights and Other Revelations. The double album touched down on April 26th, bringing E and his bandmates the usual amount of controversy. Featuring 33 songs spread out over 90 minutes, Blinking Lights is the indie rockers' sixth studio effort.

Catch Eels here and here:

June 18, Vancouver, BC - Vogue Theatre
June 25, Toronto, ON - Phoenix Concert Theatre
