Air embarks on 'Love 2' North American tour
French downtempo electronic music duo Air
kicked off a North American tour in support of their studio album "Love
2" this week and will hit 13 cities in the US and Canada through the
end of March. Bay Area
lounge lizards will depart to Oakland when Air plays their first local
show in three years.
Air will appear
at the Fox Theater, located at 1807 Telegraph Avenue in downtown
Oakland, on Friday, Mar. 26 beginning at 8 pm. Readers are encouraged
to snatch tickets
in advance rather than the night of the show because
it's sure to sell out.
Other stops include New York City on Mar. 19 -- they play the Jimmy
Fallon show on NBC the same night -- Montreal on Mar. 22, and several
cities in between the East and West coasts including Chicago before
closing their North American tour on Mar. 28 in Los Angeles. Then it's
on to Asia.
Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoit Dunckel have led Air to
nearly a dozen fanstastic albums since the '90s including 'Talkie
Walkie,' 'The Virgin Suicides' (yes it was the sound track to the
movie), and their influential 1998 album 'Moon Safari' among others.
