Kimbra supporting Gotye this Spring in the US


Kimbra to join Gotye on US tour

That haunting cameo appearance in Gotye’s multi-platinum smash hit Somebody That I Used To Know has got to be the best career move Kimbra ever made for herself. The 21-year-old singer-songwriter has just been invited to tour the US in support of the man of the moment himself, Gotye.

The nationwide run kicks off in late March and will see the pair embark on a 14-show stint through the States, not too long after their highly coveted slot on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show goes to air. 

Kimbra is also locked in to perform at the SXSW Music Conference in Austin, TX prior to the spring tour.

Originally from New Zealand, Kimbra Johnson has been spinning her jazz-inflected pop magic since the age of 14. She first made her mark on the Australian scene with debut album Vows, which spawned three hit singles, platinum status and won an ARIA Award for Best Female Artist.

But it was her arresting vocals on the chart-topping Gotye track that has propelled her onto the international stage. The video clip forSomebody That I Used To Know currently enjoys over 54 million views and is climbing the US radio charts at enviable speed.

Absolutely no fucking way will I miss this (April 4th in Minneapolis) show even more now.


First Ave, get your heads out of your ass and move this fucking show to YOUR MAINROOM so those who don't have a ticket (who deserve one) can still buy one, thanks to the scum of the music industry in

trying to sell a bunch of tickets between $119-$200 here and for $223 and $225 here
and others
$223 and $225 here
$221 and $223 here
$229 and $231 here
$218 and $220 here
$220 and $222 here
$223 and $225 here

despicable filth of the music industry. But I have a few plans already to acquire a ticket, likely before the day of the show now.

First Ave should try and move this show to THEIR MAIN ROOM now, even more so. I know there's another show on April 4th, an arttist named Lucero. But perhaps they could have an ALL-AGES SHOW start around 5PM and have enough time to still get the Lucero show in. There's MORE THAN ENOUGH DEMAND for the tickets. If by some miracle it happens, those douche-scalpers better not pull off this same bogarting shit again.
