Sharon Van Etten to Support Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds on North American Tour

The big news keeps coming with Sharon Van Etten. After completing her final U.S. tour of 2012 in support of Tramp, which culminated with a very special Town Hall show featuring guests including Thurston Moore, Aaron Dessner, Jenn Wasner, Brad Cook, and Peter Silbermann, and releasing the deluxe edition of Tramp a couple of weeks back, Sharon is honored to announce she’ll be touring this spring with Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds! The North American tour kicks off in Dallas on March 14th and currently runs through April 3rd in Denver. Tickets go on sale on Thu. Dec. 6th at 10am local time. Dates are below. Also, on Wed. Jan. 16th, Sharon will join John Cale at the Brooklyn Academy of Music for Life Along the Borderline: A Tribute to Nico.

Additionally, fans of Boardwalk Empire, perhaps you heard Ms. Van Etten’s stunning rendition of Irving Berlin’s “What’ll I Do,” on last night’s season finale? We won’t share any spoilers, but she performed it with a full orchestra a few months ago and it played during an epic scene with Boardwalk favorite, Richard Harrow.

In the meantime, keep an eye out as Tramp is landing on a slew of year-end lists. It’s only Dec. 3rd and already Uncut, MOJO, NME, The Fly, and Paste have recognized it as one of the year’s best. Much more is sure to come!
