2013 Tour to Feature Alex Wong, Barnaby Bright

45 U.S. cities, 15 German cities, a stop in London—80 days on the road in all. When Vienna comes off a touring hiatus, she doesn’t do it halfway. “It’s like a massive roadtrip to see all my friends that I’ve been neglecting,” she laughs. “The schedule’s a bit daunting to look at, but I also know every night’s going to be special.”

And they go to dark places in their lyrics—songwriters after my own heart. It’ll be such a treat to hear them night after night.”

alexwongThe tour also marks Vienna’s creative reunion with songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Alex Wong. “I’m excited to play with Alex again,” she says. “We’ve always had a great time feeding off and learning from each other. And we’ve each gone through intense experiences over the past few years that have really shaped us. I’m curious how that will come through in the music.” One of those experiences for Alex was releasing his first solo album, the moodily gorgeous A City On A Lake—a major milestone for the lifelong collaborator. In addition to playing with Vienna, Alex will open 26 of the U.S. shows, performing material from City as well as a new sophomore release.

Rounding out the traveling ensemble are Jordan Hamlin, also a producer and multi-instrumentalist, known for her work with artists like Katie Herzig, Lucy Wainwright Roche and Sandra McCracken; Eddie Jackson, engineer and mixer of Inland Territory, who will be handling live sound and show recording; and Karen Shih, who will join portions of the tour to document their adventures.

Show times, ticket links, and other venue information will be updated on the Shows page as they become available.
