Shining (Norway) Will Finally Tour America! (And Canada Too!)
In 2010 Shining won a grant for 1 million Norwegian Kroner (roughly $150,000 at the time) and promised to use it to tour the U.S. That never happened.
In 2012 Shining won another grant for 1 million Kroner (appreciated to $180,000 at the time!) and promised to use it to tour the U.S. That never happened.
At least we got the insane SXSW show in 2011, so there was that.
But it appears that now, FINALLY, Shining will come to the U.S. for really real! Although don’t get your hopes up: the tour is only eight dates long, two of which are in Canada. Still, one of them is in NYC (eat it, fuckers!) so Vince is a happy boy. Support acts will be announced soon. Here are the dates, including a European tour with The Ocean and Hacride for those MS readers that live on the other side of the pond from us.
