Sleigh Bells
  • Sleigh Bells
All right. It's a pretty big week for announcements.

The gritty, electro-pop band, Sleigh Bells, is headed back to Kansas City. This time, the duo will rattle the Beaumont on July 12. Expect a sweaty, sold-out show.

For those who like their pop melodic: Florence + the Machine will perform at Starlight Theatre on October 1. The Maccabees support.

Also on the melodic chick list: Norah Jones will perform at the Midland on Saturday, October 13. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 18, at 10 a.m.

And on the switch-a-roo front: Avicii has rescheduled his May 24 Sprint Center show for September 16 at the Midland. The show is being postponed because (according to the press release):

"The production is a re-invention of modern technology in an unexplored area of application seeing the 3d mapping is done on an organic surface and mixed in real time. In its complexity we discovered some technical issues at Coachella that could compromise the quality of the experience for the fans which is why we are recommending we move the tour starting date up to a month later."

Hmm. OK!

Originally purchased tickets for the May 24 show at Sprint Center will still be valid September 16 at the Midland. Refunds will also be available at point of purchase. Tickets for the Midland show will go on sale Monday, May 14, at 12 p.m.
