Regina Spektor Maps Fall Concert Tour
Regina Spektor has announced more dates to support her most recent album, What We Saw From the Cheap Seats. After a handful of dates beginning August 8 in Portland, Ore, Spektor will take about half a month off. But fear not, for she will be back touring around North America for a good chunk of the remainder of the year. She also has announced a slew of Australian and New Zealand dates to cap off the year.
After the quick tour of the Western U.S., Spektor will pick back up the tour in full on October 2 at the Lyric Theater in Baltimore, and the North American dates are scheduled to run through November 17 with a show at the Fillmore Miami. In between those dates, the singer-songwriter will visit cities including Portland, Maine; Montreal; Toronto; Cleveland; New York; St. Louis; Atlanta and Orlando.
After this stretch, she will take a couple weeks of rest before heading to the other side of the world for a show in Auckland, New Zealand on December 3. She will then play throughout Australia in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and a final show in Perth on December 19. All dates on the tour will be supported by Only Son.
What We Saw From the Cheap Seats was released May 29 of this year, and debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Many of the tracks on the album had been performed by Spektor in concert over the past ten years, though all were reworked and newly recorded for the album. The second single, “Don’t Leave Me (Ne me quitte pas)” was a newly recorded version of the song “Ne me quitte pas,” which was included on the singer’s 2002 album, Songs. Production of the album was helmed by in-demand producer Mike Elizondo.
