Pigeons Playing Ping Pong will take its winter tour across the country in 2022. Joined by special guests including ElephantProof, TAUK, and Karina Rykman, the newly-announced string of shows will run through January, February, and March.
Pigeons will first bring its unique blend of animated, high-energy funk to Philadelphia, PA for a two-night run at The Fillmore on January 14th–15th. ElephantProof will handle the opening duties on night two, with the supporting act for the first to be announced. Following a four-week break, TAUK will join in on the fun as the tour heads to The Intersection in Grand Rapids, MI on February 10th, ahead of stops at Agora Theatre & Ballroom in Cleveland, OH (2/11) and The Riviera Theatre in Chicago, IL (2/12).
Another break in the action will see Karina Rykman link up with Pigeons for the meat of the tour, starting at White Oak Downstairs in Houston, TX on March 3rd. From there, Pigeons and the Marco Benevento bassist will head to The Echo Lounge & Music Hall in Dallas, TX on the 4th, before scooting off to Emo’s in Austin, TX (3/5); Marquee Theatre in Phoenix, AZ (3/8); and Orpheum Theatre in Flagstaff, AZ (3/9).
The final portion will see the group travel the West Coast, with shows at Observatory North Park in San Diego, CA (3/10); The Belasco in Los Angeles, VA (3/11); The UC Theatre in Berkeley, CA (3/12); Crystal Bay Casino in Crystal Bay, NV (3/15); Midtown Ballroom in Bend, OR (3/17); Crystal Ballroom in Portland, OR (3/18); and finally a two-night stand at Neptune Theatre in Seattle, WA (3/19–3/20).
“The energy on our Fall Tour has been absolutely off the charts,” said singer/guitarist “Scrambled Greg” Ormont. “We’ve all been waiting so patiently for the return of live music, and now that it’s here, all bets are off. I can’t wait to experience this epic revival from coast-to-coast all winter long.”
PPPP is currently amidst an extensive fall tour. The band just wrapped up a three-night, Daft Side of the Moon Halloween run, before it heads to Iowa, Missouri, and Colorado in November. A headlining spot at North Beach Music Festival in December will then lead to an Area 54 NYE performance at ExploreAsheville.com Arena.
