Following a smashingly successful springtime swing through North America that hit both coasts, Canada and the Coachella Festival, the fascinating and irrepressible Astralwerks singer-songwriter YELLE will return to the U.S. with her exuberant three-man stage show for a series of club dates in October.
Accompanying Yelle on tour is album producer GrandMarnier on drums and vocals and collaborator/remixer Tepr on keyboards and programming. The five songs on iTunes Live: London Festival 08 EP were recorded during Yelle’s triumphant July 10th performance at London’s famous KOKO club. Before returning Stateside, Yelle will conclude her world-wide festival tour on August 10th at Japan’s Summersonic Festival.
As her highly anticipated C’est L’Amerique Tour approaches it’s October 7th debut in Dallas, TX (full schedule below), French electro chanteuse Yelle has announced that each show will be a dance masquerade party and she wants fans to participate by creating their own polygon dog masks that can be downloaded from the band’s MySpace page, www.myspace.com/iloveyelle. In addition, the band will create a documentary about their American tour and want fans to appear in the film talking about their lives and their passion for music. To win a chance to participate, fans must complete the documentary form available on the Yelle MySpace page. Yelle will choose winners from each tour stop, who’ll receive free tickets to the show and a private meet n greet with the band, which includes album producer GrandMarnier on drums and vocals and collaborator/remixer Tepr on keyboards and programming. Opening for Yelle is Funeral Party along with Passion Pit on select West Coast dates.
