Bloc Party Announce Mini North American Tour

Published: 2008-05-02
Indie rock formation Bloc Party will be doing a mini tour of Canada and the United States this summer since they will be on the continent to play a set at Chicago music festival Lollapalooza at the beginning of August.

The foursome have scheduled dates beginning on the 28th in July in California and end off the tour in Ontario on the 6th of September, with another festival performance: Toronto's Virgin Festival. In between some American dates and the sole Canadian performance, Bloc Party will head back to Europe to play the Reading & Leeds Festivals.

The group's most recent album was last year's A Weekend in the City, which came out in February 2007. It is Bloc Party's sophomore disc, which they will be no doubt playing songs from on this tour as well as playing tunes from their 2005 debut, Silent Alarm.

Drummer Matt Tong reveals that Bloc Party are in the early stages of their follow up to A Weekend in the City, but anything further from that is unknown.

The Bloc Party Canadian date is:

Sept. 6th, Toronto, ON Virgin Festival
