Although Pulp reunited last year for a string of overseas tour dates, the group never brought their Britpop anthems back to the states. Fortunately, U.S. fans will finally get to see Jarvis Cocker and co. in action this April, when Pulp play a handful of stateside shows for the first time in over a decade.
The group was already confirmed to play both weekends of Coachella in Indio Calif., but two additional shows — a set at New York’s Radio City Music Hall on April 11 and a performance at San Francisco’s The Warfield on April 17 — were announced on Monday (Jan. 23). The quartet of performances marks Pulp’s first U.S. shows since a tour in June 1998, in support of its album, “This Is Hardcore.”
Pulp’s 2011 reunion put an end to a nine-year hiatus for singer/guitarist Cocker, drummer Nick Banks, keyboardist Candida Doyle, bassist Steve Mackey, violinist/guitarist Russell Senior and guitarist Mark Webber. During the group’s downtime, Cocker released a pair of solo albums, 2006’s “Jarvis” and 2009’s “Further Complications.”
Here are Pulp’s 2012 U.S. Tour Dates:
April 11: New York, N.Y. (Radio City Music Hall)
April 13: Indio, Calif. (Coachella)
April 17: San Francisco, Calif. (The Warfield)
April 20: Indio, Calif. (Coachella)
