Beck and CTE are touring together over the summer.
I had no idea CTE was big enough to co-headline with Beck, jesus.
I’d argue and say they might be the bigger draw on this tour. Spoon as an opener is big too.
Gun to my head I could not name one Cage the Elephant song.
Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked got a lot of radio time on alternative stations when it came out. I don’t know much other than that but I’ve heard exceptional things about their live show.
I have never seen Beck so I wish this was coming here. I’m a casual fan of him but I feel like he’s somebody I’d def want to see. Cage The Elephant and Spoon wouldn’t be bad either. Oh well.
Beck Cage and Spoon in one night sounds so damn perfect
I’m so excited for the Irvine date! Beck is one of my biggest musical heroes and I’ve never had the chance to see him. And my gf is a huge CTE fan, so this tour is perfect. Gotta buy my tickets ASAP!
Having seen all 3 of these acts live in the past this is an amazing tour that should not be missed if you are a fan of any of the acts
Bah, pains me to miss the Forest Hills date but I have my sister's wedding. As a consolation, I will take the train to the shitty, shitty, SHITTY venue known as the PNC Bank Arts Center where there is no GA floor.
Probably have about an equal draw at this point, CTE is big in places that have an "Alt (insert number here" radio station. In NYC, CTE did 2x at Summerstage (5500-capacity) while Beck recently played Madison Square Garden though I think it struggled to sell. I don't think tour will be a hard ticket to get but should fill most venues fairly well, much better than the 30 Seconds To Mars package tour last year.
The tour is s pretty good move on Beck’s part. It’ll definitely put him in front of the typical CTE audience that goes for all that other alt-radio indie too.
Or... I guess there’s also the possibility of people bailing after CTE too, lol. But most singles off of Colors got pretty good airplay on those same stations that play CTE regularly, so I think those people will stick around
don't know a soul that is a fan of CTE
I went to a local radio show that had Foals, Silversun Pickups, and CTE on the bill. I was mainly there for the first 2 acts, but CTE put on a really great show. This could be a great lineup
In this situation, you always want to be the band that plays 2nd to last which I think will be CTE.
I'll likely be at the Camden date.
Just scored tickets to Irvine. Code is SOCIALCUES if anybody needs it
Not all heroes wear capes
I've never liked CTE, but I happened to catch their set on a live stream from some festival last year and they absolutely DESTROYED.
Just got my Irvine tickets! I’m so excited!
I'd like to go to the Queens date, but it's the same weekend as the Woodstock 50 fest. Anxiously waiting for that lineup to drop before making a decision.
