FIONA APPLE announced her first US tour in years today, including a March 27th stop in Boston at Royale.This tour follows the announcement by Epic Records that Fiona Apple will "absolutely" be releasing a new record in 2012, though the details have not yet surfaced. The tour also includes stops at Austin, Chicago, DC, New York, and New Jersey.
For a second we can stop bitching about how local rap cats never get to rock shows with major touring acts. For one, the homey Wispers is opening for Yelawolf at the Paradise this Friday. But before that, Lowell wit rapper D-Tension and Boston-schooled rhyme polemicist Elemental Zazen are propping Murs at Royale this Thursday.
