News Devendra Banhart Plots New Dates

Devendra Banhart has planned ‘a bit of a tour’, including a couple of dates opening for MGMT.

Cheese salesman extraordinaire (we'll let that go one day - Ed) Devendra Banhart has planned 'a bit of a tour', including a couple of dates opening for MGMT.

That's good, given the fact Banhart recently had to cancel a show in Israel. Speaking about that on his website, he said:

'We love the land and people of Israel, and have been looking forward to our third show there with unimaginable anticipation. Unfortunately, we tried to make it clear that we were coming to share a human and not a political message but it seems that we are being used to support views that are not our own. We will be overjoyed to return to Israel on the day that our presence is perceived and reported on as a cultural event and not a political one. We truly hope that day comes soon.'

Thankfully, none of the following dates are likely to fall foul of politics:

07/08 – Lisbon, PT @ Optimus Alive
07/09 – Vigo, ES @ Vigo Transforma
07/13 – Zurich, CH @ Kaufleuten
07/14 – Milanam, IT @ Villa Arconati Festival
