2009 Tour Dates

ALady over 11 years ago

A friend of mine just gave me the heads up that Blitzen Trapper are playing the Bottletree in Birmingham, AL on March 7:


Any other tour dates floating around out there?

Looks like 1/25/09 in Portland as well....

Can't wait for more dates. Looks like they'll be hitting A LOT of the country. Pulling for some NC dates!

hey folks, we're heading out on the endless road again come February 18, 2009 for another jaunt out east and back, kudos to alady and madhatter for the investigative digging. I think the whole tour is going to be announced real soon, it's gonna be a blast. stay tuned!

incidentally madhatter, I once played the march hare in a college production of "through the looking glass." I killed it so good that one of my english profs hired me to get in character one more time to entertain his kid's preschool class, which ended up being way more surreal than the carroll story...

See you Feb. 19 at the Empty Bottle in Chicago!

hopefully i will make it up to Pearl Street or The Paradise up in Massachusetts when you come around here. and i never go to shows ! you're looking at a 30 year old dude that probably hasn't been to a show since the Olivia Tremor Control broke up almost 10 years ago. haha. so that's saying something.

ALady over 11 years ago

Hells to the yes! Music Saves, I'll see you at the Bottle!

I'd love to hit up one of those NYC shows with Plants and Animals...that's a pretty sweet double bill.

madhatter1o6 over 11 years ago

NOOOOOOOO! March 5 is one of the few days I may have trouble traveling to a show on! I'll have to do some planning.... Maybe a late add of a March 3 date at Cat's Cradle in between D.C. and Athens? I know it'd be a long stretch with a show a night but these guys need to show Chapel Hill some love.

March 2, 2009 @ Black Cat yay i am sooo excited! should stop by Virginia too!

rowdyroddy over 11 years ago

Awesome, March 12th at the Hi Dive....couldn't have picked a better venue

volte over 11 years ago

Why oh why are the NYC, BOTH NYC dates, 18+? Or is the Bowery all ages and last.fm lied? I will be one sad girl if the Bowery is 18+. So any clarification, thank you.

Really really really dying to go.

EDIT: Maybe I'll drive to Philly... :o

ALady over 11 years ago

Will there be posters for the spring tour? I really liked the one from last year's tour with Fleet Foxes.

rowdyroddy over 11 years ago

mods/mod/Matt? - hey guys, I think you should post the tour dates to the main page here at blitzentrapper.net

everyone I tell about the tour, goes to this site, clicks on "Tour" and sees the statement "Thanks everyone for coming out for the tour, etc, etc love b.trapp"...and then calls BS on me about the upcoming tour.

or I can just do it here for now I suppose

ALady about 11 years ago

The Chicago date is already sold out. Well done, gents!

Music Saves about 11 years ago

Whew, glad I got in then. I figured they would sell out eventually, but maybe not so quick. Well done indeed!

ALady about 11 years ago

I wonder if they might move it to a bigger venue...maybe the Logan Square Auditorium? A bunch of my friends missed out on tickets and some dude is scalping them on craigslist for $55. Yikes!

Trapper Team
Matt about 11 years ago

Good news! BT's gonna play a second, early set in Chicago. Same venue (Empty Bottle), starting at 7pm. Here's the link to buy tickets!


Music Saves about 11 years ago

I thought this might happen. I saw British Sea Power there last year at what turned out to be the early show, since they had to had a late show. Between setting up the equipment and some sort of technical difficulty, they didn't start til 20-25 minutes after they were supposed to, thus shortening their set, since they had to usher everyone out to get the next group in. Glad I have the late show here.:)

ALady about 11 years ago

Yay! Thanks Matt, you guys rock! Just ordered tickets for my friends.

maymei about 11 years ago

I went to black cat yesterday and saw a Blitzen Trapper poster there. I was like OMG I can't wait till Mar 2!!!!

ALady about 11 years ago

Coachella, eh? Very nice!

I'm crossing my fingers for a triumphant return to Sasquatch, too...

purplebeeve about 11 years ago

I am so excited for the Minneapolis Show. I missed them, when they were in town before. Can't wait!!!:):)

ALady about 11 years ago

Wow, BOTH Chicago shows sold out now. Y'all are en fuego!

Darz22 about 11 years ago

Minneapolis 2/18 show has been moved from the Cedar Cultural Center to First Avenue.

I'm guessing guessing someone realized there was more demand for the band than the Cedar could handle.

Darz22 about 11 years ago

Oh, and according to Ticketmaster, tickets for the show at the Cedar will be honored at First Ave.

jryan about 11 years ago

I bought a ticket to the later show at the Empty Bottle before the early show was added. Since I have the sleeping habits of an old man, I was wondering if anyone would like to trade my late ticket for an early ticket. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

michael about 11 years ago

Hey, through a series of stupid moves I am without a ticket to the Chicago Empty Bottle shows. I need two to either show, preferably the late show. PLEASE help.

Matt about 11 years ago

Damn, I haven't even seen that yet! You're quick!

ALady about 11 years ago

Ha, just trying to plan my SXSW schedule. :) Are there any day parties in the works?

Trapper Team
Matt about 11 years ago

There's just one, which coincidentally will be announced tomorrow. Stay tuned!
