Feist Tours The World, Hooks Up With Bright Eyes

Published: 2005-08-18
It's been a wild year for beguiling Canadian songstress Leslie Feist since the release of her Let It Die album on Toronto's Arts and Crafts label last May. Unfettered critical acclaim and a heavy promotional schedule have kept the Paris-based singer and songwriter almost constantly in the spotlight.

There's no rest for the wicked, though, and judging by her upcoming tour schedule, Feist shows no sign of slowing down until the snow starts a-flyin'.

The singer/songwriter will follow up her appearance at this weekend's Ottawa Folk Festival by heading back to Paris for a gig at the Rock En Seine Festival before returning for a headlining US tour with fellow Canucks Great Lake Swimmers.

After that, it's off to Japan and Australia before returning for a Canadian tour in October (dates for that trek have still to be confirmed and announced). And, it has just been announced, the better part of the month of November will find the sometime Broken Social Scene member back in the States to open a theatre tour for indie rock pretty boy Conor Oberst and his Bright Eyes crew.

That's a lot of rock, friends. Expect October Canadian dates to be announced soon - check www.listentofeist.com for details - but until then, you can catch Ms. Feist this weekend in our nation's Capital.
