With the My Bloody Valentine’s long-delayed reissues now out and Kevin Shields talking openly about a new album, it appears 2013 will see actual MBV activity: The band is scheduled to perform three concerts in Japan next February, which would mark the dormant group’s first performances since 2009.
According to Time Out Japan (via Pitchfork), My Bloody Valentine will play Osaka on Feb. 6 and then Tokyo on Feb. 7 and 8. So far, no official word from the MBV camp on these dates or additional touring plans for 2013. Last week, the band finally released the long-promised 2-disc reissue of 1991 classic Loveless and its predecessor, 1988’s Isn’t Anything.
My Bloody Valentine tour dates:
Feb. 6: The Hatch, Osaka, Japan
Feb. 7: Studio Coast, Tokyo, Japan
Feb. 8: Studio Coast, Tokyo, Japan
