Thu, 28 Jun 2007 14:51:24
Like a good old fashioned cliffhanger, fans are waiting to see whether M.I.A. will in fact make it to America this summer to promote her sophomore record Kala or not. The unconventional female rapper has cancelled a number of dates in the past due to visa issues, but after today's announcement detailing a North American itinerary, we have reason to believe that it's all been sorted out.
So for the time being, M.I.A. will begin her brief American tour at the Village Voice-sponsored Siren Festival taking place in Coney Island, NY on July 21. She'll stick around the US for a while and hit her last stop in New Orleans, LA on October 26-28 for the Voodoo Music Experience.
These are the dates:
21 Brooklyn, NY - Siren Festival
25 Brooklyn, NY - Studio B
28 San Francisco, CA - Rickshaw Stop
03 Chicago, IL - Lollapalooza
04 Chicago, IL - House of Blues
05 Baltimore, MD - Virgin Festival
14 Austin, TX - Austin City Limits Festival
15 San Francisco, CA - Treasure Island Festival
26-28 New Orleans, LA - Voodoo Music Experience
