Phoebe Bridgers Virtual Tour 2020
Timing is everything and Phoebe’s timing sure sucks, she had years to nail down a sophomore album release date and tour and waited till now which means, like most of the world touring world, she is fucked. The three singles so far are better than we have heard from her since “Motion Sickness” -back when she was “super down” to fucking Ryan Adams.
So while tickets aren’t on sale yet, she has drawn up a virtual tour. Except for start time I see no reason to do more than one show but I guess money is money, and if she can throw in more curves. Certainly, Bridgers is capable of standing on stage by herself so perhaps the maths is, “what difference does it make”? The expense is certainly minimal compared to live touring.
Phoebe’s Spotify screaming numbers aren’t that great either. While the most popular 34M streams, her second single off the album has stalled at 2.6M. So she needs to do something.
The dates are:
May 26 @ KITCHEN w/ Hooligan Magazine: 5P PST / 8P EST (#HooliganHangouts)
May 28 @ BATHROOM W/ Noisey/Vice: 5P PST / 8P EST (Noisey Night In)
June 4 @ BED w/ DIY Magazine: 7P PM UK (DIYsolation)
June 6 @ BED – Time TBD
I guess we’re not getting invited to the UK one.
I also guess Bridgers is gonna charge. Lewis Capaldi charged $7, Rhett Miller charged $5. Laura Marling, $12… But I prefer paying and seeing a show in a very clear as concrete concert footing, I don’t much care for live streamings informality. I am paying to be entertained.
So tickets? No idea but here is her website…. see you there…
