Yo La Tengo bringing ‘Reinventing The Wheel’ live show to the UK

Band to play June UK tour with a twist

Yo La Tengo will bring their ‘Reinventing The Wheel’ concept tour to the UK in June.

The New Jersey trio will bring a wheel on stage and spin it Wheel Of Fortune style at the start of their performance. Whatever written activity the wheel pointer stops at, the band will do for the first 45 minutes of each set.

The wheel has a vast range of possibilities including a question and answer session, a set of songs only beginning with the letter ‘S’, or the band and crew acting out a classic sitcom episode.

Yo La Tengo will play:

Edinburgh Queens Hall (June 6)
Gateshead The Sage (7)
Leeds Cockpit (8)
Birmingham O2 Academy 2 (9)
Oxford O2 Academy (10)
London Royal Festival Hall (12)
