They Might Be Giants confirm massive run of live shows

They Might Be Giants are heading out on the road again shortly. The seemingly unstoppable duo are not doing things half heartedly either, with a run of thirty two shows comprising two full sets each.

The full press release follows. You can also read a review of ‘Nanobots’ here.


A big announcement – 32 upcoming shows!
Berlin, Saskatoon, London, Barcelona, Winnipeg, Amsterdam, Ann Arbor, New York City, Baltimore, and MORE! 

Tours across Canada, the US, and Europe! Tickets are available NOW and most of these shows will sell out in advance, so avoid disappointment and get going.

whAT!? YES! We are going back on the road! In support of our celebrated new album I Like Fun and a year of weekly Dial-A-Song posts at, we’re back on the road with “An Evening with” show and an expanded line-up of musicians. 

Our show includes all-time favorites, new songs, and an ever shifting rotation of fresh rarities spanning our impossibly long career along with spur-of-the-moment improvisations that will delight even our exhausted road crew. It’s always spontaneous and occasionally ribald (that means just for adults everybody! No kids admitted!) and now joining the five piece line up is show-stopping trumpet genius Curt Ramm (Nile Rogers, Bruce Springsteen). To be direct: this show is not to be missed.
These shows are “An Evening With.” That means no opening act and TWO SETS. Typically shows only run a few ways: Sunday-Wednesday shows are DOORS at 7 and TMBG’s SHOW starting at 8pm sharp. Fridays and Saturdays run an hour later with DOORS at 8 and TMBG’s SHOW at 9 sharp. Thursdays vary from venue to venue. Some will have doors at 7, others at 8. Check your local listings.
