Prayers Answered?

In a recent post, I wondered how Band of Horses would respond to Kings of Leon's cancelling of their remaining U.S. tour dates. BoH, of course, were slated to open all shows on the tour. To say I was looking forward to their Aug. 27 date in Saratoga Springs would be an understatement. I've had a man crush on them for the past two years and I wasn't sure how many times I'd get to see them north of New York City. But, alas, it was not meant to be. Or was it? ...

BoH sent this email to me today:

Hey there Friends Of BoH!

We're thrilled by all the support you're showing us, and have been working behind the scenes to do everything we can to come see you. Unfortunately, we won't be able to hit up all of the places we'd planned on visiting with Kings of Leon. BUT!!! We're happy to announce that we're going to play SOME SHOWS!!! Details are below. We are working on adding more, and will have another update very soon.

We would like to thank Kings Of Leon for the opportunity to play the shows we did, and wish them all the best.


The band have asked their fans to help them pick the setlist for each show. Check the BOH facebook page for details. Here are the new club dates:

Friday, August 5th - Charlotte, NC - The Fillmore
Tickets ON SALE NOW here: BUY NOW

Tuesday, August 9th - Philadelphia, PA - Theater of the Living Arts
Tickets ON SALE NOW here: BUY NOW

Wednesday, August 10th - New York, NY - Hammerstein Ballroom
Tickets on sale Friday, August 5th at NOON EST here: BUY LINK

Well played, BoH. Now, let's hope you're "working" on lining up a gig upstate NY.
