The indie rock band Manchester Orchestra has started a new tour this year. The band will crash in the Webster Hall for a night to remember!
The band’s second album Mean Everything to Nothing was well received by the music media. AbsoultePunk.net declared that “between percussions, subtle whispers, vocals, and emotional reactions, we have a classic temperament”. Starting this year, get ready. Enjoy the nostalgia when they bring you the show!
Manchester Orchestra and the North American Tour
The Manchester Orchestra announced a full North American tour to support the band’s new album “God’s Mask of a Million”. The two-legged hike will last from October 5th in Dallas to November 19th in Atlanta and then start again in St. Louis in February 2022. The itinerary also includes previously announced dates for New York City and Los Angeles.
By the way, the date in Atlanta will be the Manchester Orchestra’s annual hometown Thanksgiving theme concert, The Stuffing. “We are very happy to announce that we will return to the stage across the United States,” said lead singer Andy Hull. “We miss playing together in a public environment more than we thought. This will be a party. See you later.”
The Webster Concert Hall is one of the most historic theaters and event halls in New York City. Since the club was built as a “rental hall” in 1886, it has hosted various types of social events. The Ballinger brothers are responsible for its current incarnation. It can accommodate 1,400 people, providing its traditional roles as well as corporate events and recording studios.
In 2020, an academic report on Webster Hall and its place in the field of urban rock music and the wider history of Lower Manhattan was published. The Webster Concert Hall is recognized as the first modern nightclub. On March 18, 2008, after the Greenwich Village Historical Preservation Association submitted its landmark proposal, the New York City Landmarks Preservation Committee designated Webster Hall and its annexes as New York City landmarks.
