Genre-defying, Nashville-based quintet and live sensations Rainbow Kitten Surprise have announced additional summer 2023 US tour dates, surrounding two of their marquee festival slots at Bonnaroo and Hangout Music Festival. The run will kick off in Orlando (May 17), include stops in Grand Rapids (June 5), Cleveland (June 6), and Asbury Park, NJ (June 9), and culminate in Columbus, OH (June 14), before the band makes their way to Manchester, TN.
Pre-sales begin tomorrow, Tuesday, January 31 at 10am local time and general onsale begins this Friday, February 3 at 10am local time. VIP ticketing packages will be offered via On Location. Support will come from Candi Carpenter, flipturn, and Carol Ades.
Additionally, Rainbow Kitten Surprise has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket sold will go to local food banks working to fight hunger and food insecurity in their communities. Full ticketing information for all upcoming dates can be found here.
As announced last week via socials, Rainbow Kitten Surprise just sold out their entire upcoming ‘Live in Colorado’ tour – selling over 25K tickets for the run which only went on-sale less than a week prior.
The highly-anticipated four-night trek is slated for July 2 + 3 at Dillon Amphitheater and July 5 + 6 at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Fellow Nashville-based outfit The Brook & the Bluff will support all four dates, which are also presented in partnership with PLUS1 (see above).
‘Live in Colorado’ marks another pair of sold-out Red Rocks shows for the band, following their most recent two-night stand in July 2022, which also sold out almost immediately.
The genre-defying group is no stranger to sold-out shows, having completely sold out their 2022 and 2019 headline tours. Their landmark 2018 Friend, Love, Freefall Tour also included 50 sold-out shows and over 80,000 tickets sold.
This spring, the band will traverse South Africa and the UK/EU for a highly-anticipated run of international tour dates – with the latter set of shows having been upgraded to larger venues in order to accommodate ever-increasing demand. Kicking off on March 10 in Cape Town, Africa, the band will perform in cities including Paris (March 15), Berlin (March 23), Amsterdam (March 25), and London (March 31), before the tour wraps on April 4 after two consecutive nights in Dublin, Ireland. The entirety of this international run is nearly sold-out.
Always a festival favorite, Rainbow Kitten Surprise will appear at Bonnaroo and Hangout Music Festival this summer, in addition to headlining Charleston, South Carolina’s High Water Festival alongside Beck and Wilco in April. Last year, the band topped lineups at Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival, Napa, CA’s Bottle Rock Festival, and Rothbury, MI’s Electric Forest.
2022 saw the band achieve RIAA-gold certification on standout single “It’s Called: Freefall,” as well as release the emotionally charged track “Work Out,” marking their first new music in nearly two years. The song’s beautiful melody-line and effervescent vibe stands in stark juxtaposition to its poignant lyrics about the difficult relationships – of all sorts – that people struggle with. “Work Out” arrived alongside a lyric video, handwritten by RKS frontperson Ela Melo (watch here). The stunning official visual was directed by Joey Brodnax and released last June (watch here).
Also in 2022, Rainbow Kitten Surprise raised over $170k for food banks in local tour markets, LGBTQ+ causes, and mental health initiatives.
