First Aid Kit tickets - First Aid Kit tour dates

First Aid Kit Tour Schedule

Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit has been making waves in the music industry since first bursting onto the scene in 2007 and they continue to make innovative new folk music that wins over the hearts of music lovers all over the world. They initially garnered attention in their local folk music scene but before long word about their talents spread and First Aid Kit quickly became one of the most popular folk artists of the day. You may have seen their videos online or listened to their recordings, but to fully appreciate the power of First Aid Kit's music you need to see them live. First Aid Kit have several North American tour dates lined up and StubHub has tickets for every stop.

The North American First Aid Kit tour kicks off on May 22nd at Wonderland Ballroom in Portland, followed by a show at Rio Theatre on Broadway the following night in Vancouver. On the 24th First Aid Kit will take part in the three day music festival Sasquatch in Gorge, Washington before heading off for shows in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Phoenix during the rest of May. In June First Aid Kit will be performing in Omaha, Minneapolis, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C., before finishing up the tour at Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, North Carolina on June 13th. Check back on StubHub to stay up to date on any tour dates First Aid Kit adds in the future and to buy tickets for shows in your town.


About the Band

First Aid Kit consists of two sisters, Johanna and Klara Söderberg, who took influence form the likes of Fleet Foxes and Joanna Newsome to make their own unique brand of indie folk in their native Sweden. The sisters first recorded a demo tape titled Tangerine which they sent to a local radio station which began to play some of their songs. This exposure helped them land a record deal with Rabid Records which is run by another successful Swedish duo, the Knife. 2008 saw the release of First Aid Kit's debut EP Drunken Trees which was eventually re-released in the UK by Wichita Records. In 2010 First Aid Kit released their full length debut The Big Black & the Blue for which they toured all over the world. The sisters had established themselves as one of the top indie folk acts on the planet and had scored opening gigs with one of their heroes, the Fleet Foxes. They have gone on to continue recording and have performed at big time festivals including Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits as well as on television shows like Conan and had their music featured on the television shows Misfits and Bones. They continue to collaborate with the likes of Conor Oberst and have won several awards including Swedish Grammis and the Nordic Music Prize for 2012's best Nordic album. To date the duo has released three full length albums: The Big Black & The Blue, The Lion's Roar, and Stay Gold.


Breakthrough

First Aid Kit's debut full length, The Big Black & The Blue, earned them plenty of press and allowed the band to tour all over the world, helping them to build a fan base well outside of their native Sweden. This fan base consisted of several big shots in the music industry. After playing a show in Nashville, First Aid Kit was approached by Jack White who asked them to agree to record for his record label Third Man Records.


The Experience

You have been waiting for months for this night to come and finally as the lights lower you begin to see First Aid Kit taking the stage. The crowd erupts in applause as the sextet grab their instruments and approach the mic. A hush falls over the crowd as the band thanks them and launches into a fan favorite from one of their albums like The Big Black & the Blue, The Lion's Roar, or Stay Gold. The crowd once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout the night. Always one to surprise the crowd, perhaps First Aid Kit sprinkles in some new songs throughout the set. This is your chance to see one of the hottest and most talked about bands of recent years and the band definitely exceeds expectations. First Aid Kit has an ability to connect with the audience that is not always found in modern music. Do not miss the chance to see First Aid Kit when they hit your town.


Trivia

First Aid Kit have a strong relationship with Conor Oberst after being chosen to open for him during one of his tours. They are currently working with him as he records his next solo album, contributing backing vocals to every song on the album.
