Cornelius announces US dates

And he collaborates with Petra Haden and Prefuse 73

Continuing his efforts to blow minds the world over, Japanese music-manipulator Keigo Oyamada, who records and tours under the name Cornelius, will bring his multi-media show back to the U.S. in January.

The brief tour will revisit some of the clubs that hosted Cornelius earlier this year during the first leg of touring for the band’s current album, ‘Sensuous.’ It will kick off, however, with a large-scale event dubbed ‘Man-Machine in the Digital City’ at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, as part of a festival offering an “exploration of music and the urban experience.”

To coincide with the tour, Cornelius will release a limited-edition 12” on 15 January featuring a remix by Prefuse 73, as well as an


a capella version of the ‘Sensuous’ track ‘Music’ by vocal whiz and ‘Who Sell Out’ interpreter Petra Haden.

Cornelius tour dates:

Los Angeles, Walt Disney Concert Hall (January 17)

San Francisco, Fillmore (18)

Chicago, Metro, (23)

Washington DC, 9:30 Club (25)


New York, Webster Hall (26)
