As 2014 album of the year front-runner Morning Phase (Capitol) refuses to budge from the top 40, Beck has extended his rapturously received current tour by nearly a dozen new dates. The newly announced shows begin July 11, and include a stop in Salt Lake City with the Twilight Concert Series on August 14 before concluding with a sure to be legendary August 15 headline at Red Rocks in Morrison, CO.
As anyone who caught jaw-dropping recent turns at Coachella, last month’s Austin City Limits TV performance (to air this fall a date TBA in the venerable PBS series’ 40th anniversary season) or elsewhere can attest, Beck’s upcoming dates are not be missed. A glance at the reviews of this most recent run easily puts them among the most enthusiastic raves of his–or anyone’s–career:
“Like a fisherman casting a lure, Beck on Sunday night offered a lesson in how to draw a tired, coming-down crowd and muster one more burst of adrenalin… In doing so, he presented a convincing argument as being a godfather to this holy Coachella mess, one in which said pop music sub genres could not only live harmoniously but also spawn a new vibe”—LOS ANGELES TIMES
“Stunning… a glorious sampler, as sonorously rich as his brilliant new album”—OC REGISTER
“A classic, spontaneous Beck performance”—ROLLING STONE 50 Best Things We Saw At Coachella 201
