Jamie Lidell's Compass Guides Him to Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal on World Tour
Published Apr 01, 2010Post-electro soul crooner Jamie Lidell is gearing up to release his fourth solo album this spring, which means it's time to get his much-loved live show ready for another tour. After all, anyone who names their album Compass must know their way around the globe.
Kicking off in New York on April 27, the tour will see Lidell bring his ecstatic live show all over the world. After a stint through Europe, he'll return to North America for some June shows, including Canadian stops in Toronto and Vancouver. Those shows have one day in between them, so there's a small chance that more dates will be announced (fingers crossed, Alberta).
In July, Lidell will return to Europe for a slot at Germany's Melt! Festival, and will conclude the long run with an appearance at Montreal's Osheaga Festival.
As previously reported, Compass will be released on May 18 on Warp Records. In the meantime, both "The Ring" and "Compass" can be streamed here, and a video for "The Ring" can be seen below.
