Midnight Cities: M83 announces North American and European tour dates

 
 

Earlier this week, there was a bit of hope around town that M83 would appear on the spring lineup of Boston Calling Music Festival. That didn’t materialize.

Now, the French electronic pop project from producer and composer Anthony Gonzalez has outlined a North American tour for the spring, and it’s a double-whammy: There is no Boston date. Or a Massachusetts date. Or a New England date.

The closest M83 show scheduled so far is a June 4 appearance at Governors Ball Music Festival. And while Gonzalez is playing fests like Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (April 15 and 22), the Northwest’s Sasquatch Festival (May 28), and Delaware’s Firefly Music Festival (June 18) some part of the country are getting headlining theater gigs.

We’ll just have to sit tight.

In the meantime, M83 is currently working on his seventh studio album, the follow-up to 2011’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, which included perhaps the greatest template for the modern electronic pop song, “Midnight City”. Full dates are below.
