A pleasant surprise if you are an Iron and Wine fan and a bit of sunshine for all of us who initially may have felt forgotten about as they announced their recent tour dates and cities. Although Albany, NY will not get the much needed attention by the band our neighbors to the East in North Adams, MA will!
As Iron and Wine wraps up the European leg of their tour they have decided to put some additional US dates in their tour schedule. On April 15th they play in Buffalo, NY, April 16th they will play in North Adams, MA at MassMoCA (Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art), and April 17th in Burlington, VT. The tough thing for me to figure out is that there are no assigned seats for this show and is “general admission”, what does that mean? So, if my wife and I go will it be standing room only? Random seats that are first come, first serve?
I hate to be a complainer but with a $25 ticket price (which is not that expensive I admit) one normally would like to know if there will be chairs, or at the very least some logical quality experience for a large crowd. If not, seeing Iron and Wine play for 2 hours standing is not all that appealing for me personally; perhaps when I was 20 yes, but 40, no.
If you have seen a show at the Hunter Theater at MassMoCA, please let us know here at HiFi Central what the layout is like and if the acoustics are good.
Either way, it is nice to see that Sam Beam and his crew will be playing the New England area after all these years.
