Phosphorescent Plays Coachella, Stagecoach, Primavera Festivals on World Tour

3hhs_phosmatt2_4

After a wild 2010 that saw Phosphorescent release Here’s To Taking It Easy, tour the western world multiple times over, and perform on The Late Show with David Letterman, the band is deservedly taking a winter hibernation. This break ends in April as Phosphorescent heads back out on tour for another spin around the globe, headlining tours in both North America and Europe. Along the way Phosphorescent will perform at some of the biggest music festivals of the year, including indie rock epicenter Coachella and country music’s main dish the Stagecoach music festival, both in Indio, CA. In May the band will also perform at the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona, Spain, and expect more summer festival announcements coming soon. Phosphorescent’s epic, anthemic live performances are a must-see, with the band blowing the roof off of venues night after night.

Watch Phosphorescent On David Letterman

Last night, Phosphorescent made their network television debut on The Late Show With David Letterman, performing a fiery version of “It’s Hard to Be Humble (When You’re From Alabama),” the opening track from their 2010 album, Here’s To Taking It Easy. To raise the stakes even higher, Phosphorescent borrowed a helping hand from the horn section of Paul Shaffer’s CBS Orchestra. After hearing the performance David Letterman exclaimed “According to a recent poll 70% of Americans loved that!”

Phosphorescent on David Letterman this Thursday!

We are proud to announce Phosphorescent’s late night television debut! December 9 Phosphorescent will be the musical guest on The Late Show with David Letterman!
This is the perfect end to an amazing year for Phosphorescent. The year began with a personal invite from David Gray to join him on tour in both Europe and the U.S. In May, Here’s To Taking It Easy was released to huge acclaim from NPR’s World Cafe, Mojo, Paste, Filter, American Songwriter, Rolling Stone, Spin, Pitchfork, and many more. The rest of the year has been filled with non-stop worldwide touring, including the band’s current dates opening for The National in Europe.
Just this week both Mojo and Paste Magazine have named Here’s To Taking It Easy, their #8 album of 2010, and now on the eve of Phosphorescent’s final show of the year, December 10 at the Bowery Ballroom in New York, we’re able to announce that Phosphorescent’s return to New York will be even more triumphant with the news that they will perform on The Late Show with David Letterman on December 9. Normally, adding another show this late in a year that has seen Phosphorescent spend months on the road would be an impossibility, but I think we’ll make an exception in the case of Mr. Letterman!
