After making her dedicated fans wait seven years for a new album, and six years for a live return to Minneapolis, Fiona Apple isn't making us wait that long for the chance to see her again.
The talented songstress announced today that she will be hitting the road later this year with her Idler Wheel... support act/bandmate Blake Mills on a collaborative live tour, which will see the duo hit the O'Shaughnessy Auditorium on the campus of St. Catherine University in St. Paul for an intimate performance in October.
Fiona Apple and Blake Mills' O'Shaughnessy date, which St. Catherine's has booked as part of their Women of Substance Series, is October 14, 2013, in a concert billed as "Anything We Want: An Evening With Fiona Apple and Blake Mills." Tickets will go on sale this Friday, August 2, beginning at noon.
This collaborative tour is part of a small, 12-date jaunt across some of the most highly regarded venues in the U.S. The performances will feature songs from both Apple and Mills' respective catalogs, with the artists themselves still a bit unsure as to how the show will ultimately come together. Apple and Mills shared this somewhat clandestine joint statement which shares some details about their forthcoming tour:
1) We were sent an assignment to write three or four sentences.
2) These sentences should communicate that we, Fiona Apple & Blake Mills (that's us), are doing a little tour as a duo.
3) We know it'll be something special, and we aren't being coy here -- it's just that we have about 26% of an idea of what the fuck we will be playing for you.
4) It was our understanding that the 4th sentence was optional, but here is something that is true: the uncertainty excites us.
And the announcement of another Twin Cities live performance from Fiona Apple, especially one in such an intimate theater, should certainly excite her local fan base as well. For more updated information about the upcoming shows, check out the tour website.
