Calexico will return to the UK in July to play Larmer Tree Festival! Buy tickets here.
Calexico will be returning to Europe for another extensive tour this spring! Our show at The Barbican in London for La Linea Festival has already been announced, but we can now share that Gaby Moreno will be supporting not only that event, but the entire tour. She is a wonderful artist in her own right, and also adds tremendously when she joins Calexico on stage during our set. In addition to the UK, this tour will take us back to Spain, Belgium, Germany, Austria, and Croatia, as well as France, where we will play five regional shows. We can’t wait to see more of that beautiful country (and taste some delicious cheese and wine, too!).
You can look forward to some special offerings at the merch table, including a new live CD. We will share more details about that closer to tour. All new dates are listed below and tickets go on-sale this Friday at 9AM GMT at the links below.
