Having already WOWed listeners twice in 2019-first with “Tarantula” from Music Inspired by the Film ROMA, and more recently with “Super Cool” from The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part–Beck is excited to once again take it to the stage. While his 2017 album Colors (Capitol Records) has enjoyed some of the most positive reviews of Beck’s peerless career, as well as two GRAMMY awards (Best Alternative Music Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical), live performance has always been Where It’s At for modern music’s consummate chameleon.
Cage The Elephant
announced their return last week with the release of their fifth studio album, Social Cues
, out April 19th via RCA Records. The album is the follow up to the GRAMMY-winning Tell Me I’m Pretty

Austin’s most esteemed rock ambassadors, Spoon, continue their Hot Thoughts victory lap when they hit the road this summer with Beck and Cage The Elephant. The last two years have seen Spoon (“The greatest rock band of the 21st century” –The Ringer) not only release a unanimously celebrated album, but also play revelatory shows at clubs, amphitheaters, festivals, and both daytime and late night television stages. Hot Thoughts follows Spoon’s streak of three consecutive Top 10 albums-Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (2007), Transference (2010) and They Want My Soul (2014) – and with it some of the bravest, most sonically inventive work from the most critically acclaimed band of the decade ( http://www.metacritic.com/feature/best-music-of-the-decade).
