Peter, Bjorn and John gear up for US tour

The venues are a little bigger this time

Peter, Bjorn and John have unveiled a 16-date tour of the US and Canada, including two nights at Webster Hall in New York.

The band recently played a number of sold-out shows in New York, including one at the intimate Mercury Lounge and a secret show at Brooklyn’s Union Hall.

The trio are experiencing a wave of success in the US thanks to much airplay of their hit ‘Young Folks’ and more recently when actress Drew Barrymore wore a Peter, Bjorn and John T-shirt for the closing credits of a stint presenting television show ’Saturday Night Live’.


Peter, Bjorn and John will perform alongside Arcade Fire and Arctic Monkeys at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California before heading back east to kick off a tour that will take in the northern states of the US and two Canadian shows.
