The COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt events and touring dates around the country. As a result, Andrew Bird has canceled his tour of the South, including his concert at the Center scheduled for Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
NOTE: Due to rolling blackouts caused by extreme weather in Dallas our offices will be closed today, Monday, February 15th. If you have questions or need assistance e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll respond as soon as we’re able. We anticipate that our box office will reopen Wednesday, February 17th at 10AM – 214-880-0202.
To our patient friends in the south from Texas to Florida who have been holding tickets since fall of 2019, I’m sorry to say we’re going to have to cut loose those tour dates and start from scratch in 2022. Wow, that’s a long time and I’m really sorry fate has conspired to keep us apart, but it’s just not looking like we’ll be ready for mass congregation.
The upside is that I’ve been writing lots of new songs and I hope to have several new releases to share this year, including “These 13” out March 5th. I know this is rough all around. I rely on you, the audience, to be my sounding board as I try new ideas. You go to live performances for a social/spiritual experience. The day will come when we can see each other again. Gezelligheid this December I hope if not sooner.
Andrew Bird is an internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, whistler, and songwriter. Bird has recorded and toured extensively worldwide. He has recorded with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, appeared as “Dr. Stringz” on Jack’s Big Music Show, and headlined concerts at Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and festivals worldwide.
In recent years, Bird performed as the Whistling Caruso in Disney’s The Muppets Movie, scored the FX series Baskets, performed at the New Yorker Festival, and collaborated with inventor Ian Schneller on Sonic Arboretum, an installation that exhibited at New York’s Guggenheim Museum, Boston’s ICA, and the MCA Chicago. Bird has been a featured TED Talks presenter and a New York Times op-ed contributor. Additionally, Bird hosts an ongoing livestreamed series of performances called Live from the Great Room, putting the creative process on display for fans as he performs and converses with friends and collaborators in a candid, intimate setting.
More recently, Bird has released a series of site-specific improvisational short films and recordings called Echolocations, recorded in remote and acoustically interesting spaces: a Utah canyon, an abandoned seaside bunker, the middle of the Los Angeles River, and a reverberant stone-covered aqueduct in Lisbon. Bird’s latest album, My Finest Work Yet, is out March 22, 2019 on Loma Vista Recordings.
In partnership with RPM, $1 per ticket on the ‘My Finest Work Yet’ Tour will be donated to Our Finest Work Yet Fund to benefit organizations like Utah Diné Bikéyah, Conservation Lands Foundation, GreenWave, and Save the Boundary Waters who are protecting our national monuments, oceans, lakes, and parks through preservation and investment in local communities.
