Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros Announce Big Top

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros in association with Live Nation today announced Big Top – a new and distinctive circus experience created and curated by the band to take place at Los Angeles State Historic Park on October 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th for four nights and two days on the weekend including a matinee show on Sunday, October 20th for families. The festivities will take place under a traditional Big Top and include an intimate headlining performance in the round by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, a unique farmer’s market, beer gardens, late night happenings, and performances by an eclectic mix of musicians, vaudeville comedy, contortionists, acrobats, puppetry, and interactive performance art.

“These days a band is a fast machine, cramming in dates, cutting fat, making the most money it can. Far gone are the ancient days of the traveling troubadours, lingering in towns, meeting the people, entertaining for days,” said the band’s Alex Ebert. “If you tour, or you have been to a ‘professional’ show, you may have had the sense that something is missing from the experience...And so, here comes the idea of Big Top - a one-off experiment in reaching for a more colorful, soulful, way to tour.”

Since forming in 2007, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros have toured all of the world creating unique experiences and happenings with their music and live performances, including a residency at the Regent Theater in 2009, the Railroad Revival Tour with Mumford & Sons and Old Crow Medicine Show in 2011, five nights of performances at the Old Vic Tunnels in London in 2011, and last week’s headlining performance at Los Angeles’ famed Hollywood Bowl.

Big Top will continue the band’s tradition of curating a uniquely interactive experience for fans. Continuous entertainment and activities will transform a single location into distinct yet equally captivating environments by day and night. The outdoor space surrounding the tent will offer a carnival like setting with a farmer’s market, avant-garde performances, and games as well as local vendors, artisans, and charities. Within the tent, 360 degree tiered seating will allow for intimate performances in the round. During the day, selected films and visual art installations as chosen by the band will be highlighted. At night the tent will present an eclectic mix of featured artists to perform, entertain, and inspire. Ultimately, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will take the stage surrounded by fans on all sides to bring this fantastical adventure to fruition.

Tickets for Big Top will go on-sale on Friday, August 9th at 10:00 AM PST. For additional information, please visit EdwardSharpeBigTop.com.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros to Release a Companion Album to Here by End of 2012

Fresh off a run of tour dates that began in Santa Ana, CA on March 14, 2012 at The Observatory, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros announced today they would release a second album by year's end in addition to their next studio album, Here, which will be released on May 29, 2012.

"In the middle of the recording process we realized we were essentially making a double album. Being four years since our last album, the writing explored a wide variety of subject and sound, as it turned out we had a lot to say," said the band's Alex Ebert. "Instead of putting it out all at once, we found that two different albums seemed to be forming. Alone these albums are albums. Together these albums express a varying and so relatively living portrait of our lives." 

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros today posted the final tracklisting for Here this morning on their official website, and recently unveiled the artwork for the album, consisting of a photograph shot by Alex Ebert in Mozambique on the fan site TheMagneticZeros.com.

"The hard division created by the horizon of sea and sky represents the appearance of a dualistic world of dark and light, us and them, here and there. The circle that breaks the dividing line between the sea and the sky represents what feels to be the underlying truth: that creation lives not by the laws of duality or division, but emanates from everything at once, swirling all falsely-held boundaries in a wonder of every spectrum of experience," said Ebert.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will launch a nationwide tour starting in Oakland, CA at the Fox Theatre on May 2nd.  The band will be headlining the iconic Greek Theatre and kick off its 2012 Season on May 4th.  The following night the band will headline Santa Barbara's Santa Barbara Bowl for the first time.  The tour will cross the country and include a headlining performance at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN and a stop in Canada before it winds down on June 1st at the Wakarusa Festival in Ozark, AR.  Click HERE for a full list of tour dates and ticket links.

Here Track Listing:
1. Man On Fire
2. That's What's Up
3. I Don't Wanna Pray
4. Mayla
5. Dear Believer
6. Child
7. One Love To Another
8. Fiya Wata

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Mumford & Sons, and Old Crow Medicine Show Announce ‘Railroad Revival Tour’

This April, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Mumford & Sons, and Old Crow Medicine Show will embark on a tour unlike any in recent memory. Traveling exclusively in vintage railcars, the three bands will journey across the American Southwest over the course of a week. The aptly titled Railroad Revival Tour will feature the three bands playing concerts at six unique outdoor locations along the route, beginning April 21st in Oakland, California.

The Railroad Revival train is 1,500 feet long and consists of 15 vintage railcars from the 1950s and 60s, pulled by two locomotives. The bands will eat, sleep, and record on the train as they travel across the American Southwest, bringing their collaborative vision to fans from California to New Orleans. The bands will have equal billing and equal time on stage, in an environment that encourages creativity and cross-pollination. The entire tour will be the focus of a documentary that captures the spirit of the journey and gives intimate insights into the creative process.

When asked about the inspiration behind the Railroad Revival Tour, Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros commented, “From hobos to the wild west, trains have always been a fascination of mine. This tour is going to be rad."

Tickets to The Railroad Revival Tour go on sale Wednesday, March 9 at 9 am PST (10 am MST, 11 am CST, 12 pm EST). Tickets are available exclusively through RailroadRevivalTour.com. Each ticket will include an MP3 download of live recordings from the tour as well as a commemorative ticket custom-designed for each site, with no additional service fees.

Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros announce London shows at The Old Vic Tunnels

Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros will head to the UK in March for three very special shows at the Old Vic Tunnels in London. The band will be headlining as well as curating the event, which will include performances from other bands, artists and film screenings.

The venue is new. The actor Kevin Spacey personally invited the band to perform at this unique space, a maize of underground rooms and tunnels that hosted some of the most innovative exhibitions and performances of last year. For more details, visit Old Vic Tunnels.

Throughout the three nights, guests will be entertained by a multitude of non traditional performers in an atmosphere and setting that is derived directly from the mind of the band themselves. The Old Vic Tunnels will be transformed into a new frontier, the Wild West on planet Mars, lunar deserts and red skies, the design inspired by classic films such as Holy Mountain and El Topo along with newer psychedelic western films like Renegade, giving the audience an extraordinary experience.

The shows will take place ahead of lead singer Alexander’s solo record, due for release in April. The band are currently working on their second Edward Sharpe album, due out this summer.

Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros Tunnel Shows:
Thu 10 March London Old Vic Tunnels
Fri 11 March London Old Vic Tunnels
Sat 12 March London Old Vic Tunnels

Tickets are 15 euros at See Tickets
