After reuniting for a short run of coastal concerts over the summer, Bikini Kill have today revealed a full list of 2020 tour dates. It marks their first expansive North American tour in over 20 years.
The riot grrrl pioneers have mapped out 17 shows for the spring. Things kick off March 13th in the band’s hometown of Olympia, Washington at a benefit show for Interfaith Works, a homeless shelter and services program prioritizing women and single LGBT adults in the local community. From there, Bikini Kill will hit up Seattle, Portland, Philadelphia, Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Cleveland, and elsewhere. In August, they’ll head to Norway for an appearance at Oslo’s Øya Festival.
Update: Bikini Kill have confirmed a summer festival appearance at Oakland’s Burger Boogaloo, as well as headlining shows at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park and Red Rocks in Morrison, CO.
