The Go! Team announce first US shows in 5 years

It’s been a while since The Go! Team played on American shores. Five years, in fact, all the way back in 2010, the heart of Barack Obama’s first term as president. A lot has changed since then: the group released two albums (including this year’s The Scene Between); Drake became more and more powerful; the Olympics happened, both summer and winter editions; Barack Obama served the rest of his first term and almost three years of his second; I moved a few times.

With all these happenings, it’s about time for The Go! Team to check up on us. In January, the group will play a smattering of shows in these United States. Once those seven shows are over, you may have to wait until Barack Obama’s third or, hey, even fourth term to see this band again. That should be enough, but to sweeten the deal, the band’s live lineup will include original members Ian Parton, Ninja, and Sam Dook, along with new blood Cheryl Pinero, Maki, and Simone Odarnile.
