I received an email today from the Interpol mailing list:
"We're getting back on the bus, traveling across some fine regions of our great states - and we're making stops... Yes, as in, playin' shows.
Go to Interpolnyc.com where we'll be posting tour dates/cities, and for a limited time, pre-sale tickets will be available directly from the band, with no third party involvement, thus creating a less expensive price per ticket.
We're looking forward.
Ticket prices range from 28 thru 40 dollars and are for the following states as of this post: NY, PA, IA, OH, MO, GA, SC, MD, RI and CT.
It's great that the band is doing their own ticketing and makes me feel that much more connected to the music if I were to purchase a ticket. Sort of like buying a vinyl album instead of a download or a CD.
Unfortunately, it seems they aren't venturing past the mid-west just yet.
