The entire tour isn’t announced and, in fact, only a few dates are known, but it’s the damn Beastie boys, so it’s news. Since Mike D., Ad-Rock and MCA haven’t toured since the dates surrounding 1998’s Hello Nasty, we figured you’d be interested. The politically-minded trio from NYC have announced gigs in Long Beach, SF, and Seattle on September 14, 16, and 19, respectively (as well as the Voodoo Festival date in New Orleans for October), with more shows set to be unleashed. Talib Kweli will support on the three current shows, and most likely on the dates filled into the Beastie’s calendar. We’ll keep you posted on any other additions to the schedule, but for now, rejoice West Coast: they’re coming your way.
09.14.04 – Long Beach, CA (Long Beach Arena)
09.16.04 – San Francisco, CA (Bill Graham Civic Auditorium)
09.19.04 – Seattle, WA (KeyArena at Seattle Center)
