John Grant to Headline US Tour (video / tour dates)

Tuesday, Nov 2, 2010

Upon listening to former Czars-frontman John Grant’s first solo record, Queen of Denmark, one feels the kind of awe usually reserved for rock heroes of old. It is, quite simply, one of the great records of 2010. Mojo magazine gave the album its seldom-bestowed five-star, “instant classic” rating, and influential LA blog Aquarium Drunkard called it “a new cult classic”.

Earlier this year, Grant opened for Queen of Denmark producers and backing-band Midlake, turning audiences across the country on to his special brand of heart-bearing indie songcraft. Now he’s headlining his own US tour this December, starting 12/4 in Chicago (complete tour dates after the jump). These shows are not to be missed.
