Tickets On Sale for Colin Meloy's Solo Tour
Tickets are now on sale for all shows on Colin Meloy's January solo tour. Laura Veirs is set to open for Meloy throughout the tour; Amy Annelle will also open for him in New York.
Going to one of his solo concerts early this year was the only "official" way to get a copy of Meloy's EP of Morrissey covers, Colin Meloy Sings Morrissey. Meloy has announced that "As a consequence of it being so much fun the last time, it is likely he will be taking time to record another 'Colin Meloy Sings...' EP that will be available exclusively on [this] tour. Coveree TBA." Predictions, anyone?
It's considerably easier to snag a copy of his autobiographical book Let It Be, about the Replacements album by the same title, and one of the 33 1/3 books. Perhaps an EP of Replacements covers would be too obvious?
Tickets to most of Meloy's January concerts are available through Ticketmaster (no, seriously). For the NYC show, Meloy recommends buying tickets at the Irving Plaza box office "to avoid Ticketmaster fees!" Check out "your" venue's website for ticket purchasing info (particularly if "your" concert is mysteriously absent from Ticketmaster). Meloy remains singer and songwriter for The Decemberists who are on tour in Europe throughout November.
