Beck has added 10 dates to his 2014 tour, including an April 9 stop at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara ahead of his scheduled performances April 13 and 20 at Coachella. He’ll also be dropping in tonight on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and April 1 on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Beck’s new album, “Morning Phase,” remains in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 albums chart in its second week of release, having sold an additional 33,000 copies last week, bringing its two-week sales total to 120,000.
Of “Morning Phase,” Times staff writer Mikael Wood wrote, “the new record serves as a kind of spiritual sequel -- a ‘companion piece,’ his camp calls it -- to 2002's ‘Sea Change,’ on which the singer broke from his established collage aesthetic to offer up a dozen slow-and-low folk songs about the pain of heartache. True to his transformer's nature, the sequel is better than the original.”
The additional tour dates include stops in Tucson, Ariz.; El Paso; Cleveland; Columbus, Ohio; North Adams, Mass.; Montreal; Toronto; Detroit; and New York.
The full concert itinerary is on Beck’s official website. Early access to tickets for the new dates began today, Wednesday, March 12, for Citicard holders at 7 a.m. Pacific time and continues through 7 p.m. Thursday.
