Brandi Carlile Announces Pin Drop Tour; Stops in Philly 10/4
Brandi Carlile's concerts are always intimate affairs -- even when she's headlining venues like the Beacon Theatre, Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the Chicago Theatre -- but this fall she's upping the intimacy quotient even further with the Pin Drop Tour. Carlile will be playing completely unplugged -- no amps, no microphones -- at small venues that are uniquely suited to such performances including a Philadelphia tour stop at the Perelman Theater on Saturday, October 4 at 8 p.m. She will be joined onstage by The Twins (band mates/co-writers Tim and Phil Hanseroth) and cellist Josh Neumann.
Carlile has just finished recording her fifth studio album, the follow-up to Bear Creek, which debuted in the Top 10 of The Billboard 200 in 2012. She will be previewing a few of her new songs and playing plenty of fan favorites from throughout her career on the Pin Drop Tour.Brandi has played numerous festivals this summer and will perform with her full band on the Main Stage when Dave Matthews Band Caravan comes to the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA over Labor Day Weekend (August 29-31).
Tickets to Brandi Carlile's Philadelphia performance in the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater go on sale to the general public on Friday, August 15 at 10 a.m. Tickets are available from $76 to $86 and can be purchased by calling 215-893-1999, online at kimmelcenter.org, at the Kimmel Center box office, Broad & Spruce streets (open daily 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.).
"Without giving away too many surprises, I imagine this to be a very vocal-centric set. Heavy on the humanity and light on the affectation. Lots of human percussion and hollering!" says Carlile.
