NEWS: Pulp announce North American tour

Britpop icons Pulp will play their first North American shows in over a decade as they announce a tour of the US and Canada for this autumn. The Sheffield legends last performed on the continent in 2012 at Coachella Festival and are excited to make their return with dates in Chicago, Toronto, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York this September.

“So, the encore continues,” explains frontman Jarvis Cocker. “The songs came back to life and they want to be heard. They need to be heard. Come out and have some fun with us. You deserve it. Yes. You do.”.

The dates follow on from Pulp’s successful This Is What We Do For An Encore UK tour in 2023 Tickets for the North American shows will go on sale this week

Fans can sign up for Pulp’s pre-sale by joining the band’s mailing via before midnight PDT on Monday, 18th March. All those who do, will be sent a link and password to use when tickets go on sale on a first come, first served basis at 10am (local time to each venue) on Tuesday, 19th March.

Tickets will then go on general sale on Friday, 22 March at 10am. All times are local to the venue.

Pulp are currently set to headline a number of festivals this summer including, Primavera Sound in Spain and Portugal, Athens’ Kallithéa, Oya in Norway, Way Out West in Sweden and Helsinki’s Flow Festival. They are also playing a one-off show at Amsterdam’s AFAS Live concert hall on 24 May.

Pulp’s bass player, Steve Mackey, tragically passed away on the 2 March 2023 and the This Is What We Do For An Encore tour has become dedicated to his memory.

Support across the tour comes from duo Escape-ism, who were handpicked by the band and are described by Jarvis Cocker as “the Found-Sound-Dream-Drama featuring Ian Svenonius & Sandi Denton.”
