Dinosaur Jr. Reschedule US Tour Dates

18th October 2021 | Category: Concerts

Dinosaur Jr. have postponed their 2021 West Coast tour due to Covid, and they’ve now announced the rescheduled dates. Shows start February 3 in Pioneertown and wrap up February 26 in Denver, and include two nights at L.A.’s The Fonda on February 19 and 20. The band noted that “All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new dates” and you can “visit your point of purchase for ticketing questions/refunds.” They also advise fans to check their venue’s Covid policy as they vary.

Meanwhile, Dinosaur Jr’s East Coast tour, which is with Ryley Walker as a supporting act, begins November 11 in Philly. During that tour, they will be making stops in Nashville, Carrboro, New Haven, Brooklyn, and more. They play their final show out East in Boston, Massachusetts on November 27.

Dinosaur Jr. released a new album titled Sweep it Into Space earlier this year. This is the Massachusetts-based trio’s 12th album overall, and fifth since reforming their classic line-up in 2005.

Having first formed the band in 1985 with J Mascis and drummer Murph, the bassist Lou Barlow loves the moments that reflect the dynamism of Dinosaur Jr. working purely as a power trio. “It really cuts it down to the bare essentials of the band,” he said of their spare, yet steel-reinforced approach.

“I think it’s a lost art with a lot of rock bands and recording techniques. People are like, ‘It sounds too empty; you’ve got to put rhythm guitars in there!’ I’ve never liked that. I think it should be like the ’60s, like, ‘No, fuck that! It’s 1967 – bass in the left channel, guitar in the right.’ Cut it down and let the guitar talk. Let the bass be heard.”

It was recently announced that a documentary about Dinosaur Jr. was being created to showcase the story behind the band. The trailer for the documentary was released in late September, just a few days before it would be released in theaters across the UK and Europe.
