Southern Californians who missed Vampire Weekend at Coachella over the last two weekends will get another chance to see the New York indie-pop band before long.
On Sept. 28, Vampire Weekend is to play the Hollywood Bowl, the venerable outdoor venue announced Monday, adding to a summer season that already includes shows by She & Him with Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell (on June 23), Damian & Stephen Marley (on June 30) and Diana Ross (on Aug. 3).
Tickets for the concert -- which will also feature Beirut, the globe-tripping gypsy-folk band led by singer-songwriter Zach Condon -- go on sale May 4.
Following closely on its Coachella appearances, Vampire Weekend is set to release a new studio album, "Modern Vampires of the City," on May 14. The disc was recorded partly in L.A. with producer Ariel Rechtshaid and serves as the anticipated follow-up to 2010's "Contra," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
Look for a feature on Vampire Weekend in Calendar in the coming weeks, and listen to "Step," from the new album, below.
