Kurt Vile is excited to announce a run of European solo shows this summer, including a date in Vicar Street on 12th June 2020. Tickets €35.00 on sale now!
The first European solo tour by Vile in six years offers the opportunity to see one of the most celebrated, prolific and successful singer-songwriters of his generation in an intimate setting, performing stripped back renditions from his acclaimed catalogue.
This past October, Vile released a short documentary film directed by Ryan Scott titled (bottle back), that captures him camping out in the Catskill Mountains in upper state New York alongside fellow musicians/friends The Sadies and Matt Sweeney. The short film features a solo acoustic adaptation of ‘Bassackwards’, a performance of ‘Check Baby’ with The Violators, and a special version of ‘Baby’s Arms’ featuring The Sadies.
Vile recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of Bottle It In, his momentous eighth studio album. The record has been met with widespread acclaim from publications including The Times, The Guardian, Evening Standard, The Observer, Sunday Times, MOJO, Uncut, Q, NME and others.
