Ben Lee To Kick Off North American Tour Next Month

Aussie singer/songwriter/actor/label head Ben Lee will begin a North American tour on September 17 at the Space in Hamden (New Haven), CT. While he's there, the New Haven Film Festival will premier the Australian feature The Rage In Placid Lake, in which Lee makes his acting debut alongside costars Miranda Richardson and Rose Byrne. Following that Ben will make his way up to Canada for a few dates, then across the Midwest and East Coast. Two shows in California are planned for the end of October as well, with additional West Coast dates expected to be announced soon.

Lee is bringing Montreal-based, all-girl band Pony Up! along for the ride. Pony Up! is the first band signed to Lee's fledging new indie label, Ten Fingers Records. Check out the tour itinerary below.
