Feist announces Shepherd's Bush dates (2017)


Story by Jack Foley

WITH her critically acclaimed new album Pleasure out now, Feist has announced details of an upcoming European Tour.

The tour includes two nights at London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on July 27 and 28 – Feist’s first shows in the capital for over five years.

Tickets for all dates are on sale now.

The European tour dates are as follows (all July and August 2017)…

19 – Paris FR, L’Olympia tickets
20 – Mainz DE, Zitadella Open Air tickets
24 – Berlin DE, Tempodrome tickets
27 & 28 – London, O2 Shepherds Bush Empire tickets

2 – Munich DE, Circus Krone tickets

As the fourth full-length from the Canadian singer/songwriter born Leslie Feist, Pleasure builds off the warm naturalism of 2011’s Polaris Prize-winning Metals and emerges as her most formally defiant and expansive work so far.

And while each album is a departure from the next, Pleasure finds the four-time Grammy Award and two-time BRIT Awards nominee again showing the extraordinary depth of her artistry. The album includes the single Century, which features a spoken word outro from Jarvis Cocker and is currently A-listed at BBC 6Music.

Recorded over the course of three months – in Stinson Beach, Upstate New York, and Paris – Pleasure was co-produced by Feist with long-time collaborators Renaud Letang and Mocky.

In addition to reaffirming Feist as a cagily inventive guitar player, the album threads her shape-shifting and often haunting vocals into sparse and raw arrangements.
