On August 1st, Lykke li will be performing at Central Park Summer Stage with Timber Timbre in New York, NY!
After a sold out headlining North American tour this past May, Sweden’s Lykke Li will be returning to the States for four special shows this August, in addition to announcing the dates for her upcoming fall tour.
Lykke Li will be playing at Central Park’s SummerStage in New York on August 1st, followed by a stop at theGreek Theatre in Los Angeles on August 3rd, the House of Blues in Chicago on August 5th, and her only U.S. festival appearance at this year’s Lollapalooza on August 6th. She will be performing songs off of her critically-acclaimed sophomore release, Wounded Rhymes, which was released earlier this year and is already being called one of 2011’s best albums.
If you can’t catch Lykke Li live this time around, be sure to tune in to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno onAugust 4th where she will be performing the organ-driven “Youth Knows No Pain.” This hazy, 60’s-inspired tune is filled with pounding voodoo drums, girl-gang vocals and features Lykke Li’s voice sounding bigger and bolder than ever before.
The 11-date fall tour will be one of Lykke Li’s biggest North American tours to date, allowing fans that missed out on her live this past spring to finally experience her incredible presence in the flesh. As she has proven many times over, her live show is absolutely not to be missed.
