M.I.A. has announced a slew of new tour dates in support of her most recent album, last year’s Matangi (TMT Review). She’s keeping it mostly East Coast this time, launching the tour in Pennsylvania and wrapping it up with two nights at the Knockdown Center in Queens. But that’s not all! Ms. Arulpragasam will be rockin’ stages at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Moogfest in Asheville, and Sasquatch! in (best-named city) George, WA.
And she’s bringing along new friend A$AP Ferg as an opener on tour! Ferg will be repping his Trap Lord (TMT Review) album that came out in August. No word if the always-controversial M.I.A. pal Julian Assange will be Skypeing into any of her planned tour stops.
