Air announce North Ameircan tour dates

    If you think Air are cheekily Euro on their records but you haven’t seen them live, well, you ain’t seen nothing yet. When Jean-Benoit Dunckel and Nicolas Godin hit the stage in their berets, shooting loverman stares at the crowd, the cheeze factor reaches near Velveeta proportions.
