Little Dragon Return to North America for Headlining Tour in January 2011

December 3, 2010

Immediately after wrapping up a surreal arena-tour opening for the Gorillaz and De La Soul through Europe, Hong Kong, Australia, and New Zealand to close off the year, Little Dragon will splash into 2011 for a proper solo tour of their own. The dates begin on January 7th w/ two special shows in LA and onward through the US and Canada.little dragon

In typical Little Dragon fashion, tickets for the larger markets are moving as quickly as they went on sale due to unrivaled outpouring of support from their fans. Little Dragon's grassroots following is spread through organic means of marketing (with no label support!) and word of mouth from fans of all walks of life ranging from DJ Shadow to interns are public radio stations pushing them to the top of the rotation pile. Hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden, Little Dragon emerged with tremendous stealth and ease onto the scene after their 2007 Self-Titled (Peace Frog) debut dropped overseas.  A healthy following quickly blossomed off an aggressive touring schedule and impressive word of mouth on US soil as the album is still available through import only. They were (and continue to be) a music lovers secret weapon - a band on the rise that is dedicated to their vision by traversing all creative boundaries. Little Dragon are ready to deliver their third and still untitled full length through a proper label home in North America in May / June 2011.
