AIR ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES
IN SUPPORT OF LOVE 2 ALBUM
First Shows In Three Years
For the North American dates, AIR will be joined by British drummer/percussionist Alex Thomas (Bat For Lashes, Badly Drawn Boy) and guest opening act will be AM, a revered multi-instrumentalist from Los Angeles with a flare for distilling global music influences into his own unique and infectious pop confections.
AIR’s 1998 debut album Moon Safari struck a unanimously harmonious chord with music lovers around the globe and has since become an electronic pop classic. Since then AIR have enjoyed many career-defining moments including the now legendary sold-out show with full orchestra at the Hollywood Bowl in 2004. The band has also garnered many accolades, both at home and abroad, and have written, produced and collaborated on a breathtaking array of music projects.
With 5.5 million worldwide album sales to their credit, the band has become de facto ambassadors of modern French pop, whose fans are drawn back to each new musical adventure by their inventive arrangements, and a playful yet unpredictable palette of sounds and songcraft.
Prior to their North American journey, AIR will set out on a European tour in early 2010 starting at the legendary Casino de Paris in their hometown and ending at the legendary Roundhouse in London on February 26th.
