As promised earlier this month, Echo & The Bunnymen today announced a 10-date North American tour this May that will find the U.K. rockers performing their beloved first two albums — 1980’s Crocodiles and 1981’s Heaven Up Here — back-to-back and in their entirety each night.
The Bunnymen, who have performed their 1984 album Ocean Rain live in recent years, played Crocodiles and Heaven Up Here back-to-back on a short run of U.K. dates last month. Now they’ll bring that show to North America for a short run of dates, mainly hitting the East and West Coasts, beginning May 9 in Boston and wrapping up May 22 in Anaheim, Calif. — with a lone Canadian date set for May 16 in Toronto.
UPDATE 2/18/11: Three more dates added in Georgia, Texas.
