Beck will be filling in for My Morning Jacket at the July 27 “Americanarama” stop in Wantagh, N.Y., because MMJ frontman Jim James is busy that night playing Rhode Island’s Newport Folk Festival. Along with Beck and Dylan, the Wantagh show features performances from Wilco and Ryan Bingham.
Additional festival appearances for Beck include Newport Folk Festival, Days Off in Paris and Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival.
The majority of the dates feature stripped down, acoustic sets – with a band. Days Off is a solo acoustic gig. If full band, electric shows are more your speed, you’ll want to catch Beck in Boston or Brooklyn.
Here is the itinerary:
May 19 – Santa Cruz, Calif., Rio Theatre
July 2 – Paris, France, Cite De La Musique (“Days Off”)
July 27 – Wantagh, N.Y., Nikon At Jones Beach Theater (“Americanarama”)
July 28 – Newport, R.I., Fort Adams State Park (“Newport Folk Festival”)
July 30 – Portland, Maine, State Theatre
Aug. 2 – Boston, Mass., Bank Of America Pavilion
Aug. 4 – Brooklyn, N.Y., Prospect Park Bandshell (“Celebrate Brooklyn! Perf. Arts Fest”)
Select dates are on sale now.
Presales for the Americanarama gig and Celebrate Brooklyn began today. The general onsales are scheduled May 4 for Americanarama and May 10 for Brooklyn.
Tickets for Portland and Boston go on sale May 3.
