Edie Brickell & New Bohemians' Rocket Tour
Fusing together elements of folk, jam rock, neo-psychedelia and jazz, Edie Brickell & New Bohemians hit mainstream success when their debut album 'Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars' hit two times Platinum in 1988 and was hailed by critics as a brilliant break through thanks to the then 22-year old Brickell's brilliant lyrics, distinctive phrasing and captivating vocal style. Three decades and over fifteen albums later, the iconic frontwoman and her band hit the road to support the October 2018 release of brand new album Rocket.
Brickell's first record since 2006, Rocket is a triumphant return for the indie songstress and her original band, though she has not remained idle in the interim. Her blossoming solo career and Grammy-winning bluegrass collaborations with Steve Martin have also manifested in her co-writing of the Drama Desk Award-winning Broadway musical Bright Star in 2016. Whilst making use of more moder production techniques, her latest offering is filled with the band's trademark freewheeling and pioneering spirit, chugging guitars and wry observations mixed with beat poetry lyrics.
