Last week the Beastie Boys announced the initial dates on their Get Out and Vote tour. The tour is designed to encourage people to vote in the forthcoming presidential elections, and finds the hip-hop group joined by a mixed bag of performers. Santogold and Tenacious D might not raise too many eyebrows, but the addition of Sheryl Crow, Crosby & Nash (sadly sans Stills & Young), and Norah Jones makes for intriguing billing.
But it’s the cause that counts, and with the tour happening just days before the election, it could serve as a timely reminder for young voters to hit the polls on November 4. Further dates have just been added to the tour, with the tickets for the October 27 date going on sale this Thursday at www.etix.com. Tickets for the dates between October 29 and November 1 go on sale Friday at 10am from Ticketmaster and the venues. All other dates are on sale now. Full Get Out and Vote dates listed below.
