She & Him – Tour, Single, Album!By Craig Smith • Feb 23rd, 2010 • Category: News
Webcuts are very excited (literally, this is about as pumped you’ll see us. ever) to announce that sultry pop swingers She & Him will be playing shows across the UK and Europe for the very first time this Spring. The live shows will feature a seven-piece band including She (Zooey Deschanel) and Him (M Ward), performing songs from their gorgeous forthcoming LP, Volume Two (April 5th), as well as their debut, Volume One.
The tour, which kicks off in Madrid on 26th April, passes through mainland Europe and Scandinavia before finishing up with two UK shows – London’s Koko on the 7th of May and a performance at ATP (curated by Matt Groening) on the 8th. She & Him will also perform at this year’s SXSW, Coachella and Bonnaroo Festivals in the US.
Webcuts will be down the front to capture the London show for posterity and perhaps even (blush), get to speak with the paragon of beauty and take-home-to-meet-your-mother-ness that is Zooey Deschanel. Matt Ward, you’re a handsome fella, but you’re just not my type.
