1990′s alternative rock group Pavement is now in the process of planning a U.S. tour for 2010. They officially disbanded after a show at Brixton Academy in London on November 20, 1999. The band had decided to cut ties for a while and released a statement saying “Pavement are retiring for the forseeable future to: 1. Start families 2. Sail around the world 3. Get into the computer industry 4. Dance 5. Get some attention.”
Heading into 2010 Stephen Malkmus, Bosb Nastanovich, Scott Kannberg, Steve West, and Mark Ibold are all set to come back for a reunion tour. They are planning to perform on NYC’s Central Park Summerstage for four nights in September. The tour is rumored to start in Southern California in April.
Pavement throughout the 1990′s released five studio albums. They are most well known for their singles “Cut Your Hair,” “Range Life,” “Stereo,” and “Shady Lane.” The most impressive part of the band while in their prime was the mass following they created for themselves despite their lack of commercial success. In all of their years together the group remained signed to an independent label.
U2 opened up the North American leg of their 2009 tour this weekend in Chicago with shows on 9/12 and 9/13. The set lists from both shows were very similar to set lists from the earlier European dates. The band is still playing 7 tracks from their newest album with hits from their entire catalogue mixed in.
U2 will be in Foxboro, MA on Sunday 9/20 and Monday 9/21 at Gillette Stadium. U2 tickets are available for these and all 2009 tour dates.
