Swans tour venues
Swans Concert Schedule
Swans emerged out of New York City's experimental rock scene in the early 1980s, and they have recently reunited to bring their red-hot no wave tracks to their rabid fans nationwide. After over a decade and a half of success in the experimental rock world, Swans went on an indefinite hiatus, much to the dismay of their fans. Fortunately, in 2010 this beloved rock outfit reunited, and they have been back in action ever since. That means you now have the opportunity to see this '80s favorite in action, and you definitely shouldn't miss out! And thanks to StubHub, you don't have to!
Since forming in 1982, lead vocalist and songwriter Michael Gira has been at the helm of Swans. The lineup has changed frequently over the decades, but Gira has always remained a constant, maneuvering the band through the changing tides of the rock world. Swans' current lineup consists of Gira, Christoph Hahn, Thor Harris, Christopher Pravidca, Phil Puleo, and Norman Westberg. Swans earned a reputation early on in their career for being unusually loud, often drawing police to their shows to shut down the noise. As their name continued to make its way around NYC, Gira decided to tone down the band's sound, shifting from raucously loud concerts to a more acoustic sound, as Gira always strives to make Swans anything but predictable. He kept the band exciting, and fans couldn't appreciate it more, because soon Swans' concerts were jam-packed no matter where the band performed.
After rising to fame in the post-punk world in the '80s, Swans continued to switch up their style and sound through the '90s. While they had gained a significant fan base in the U.S., they also garnered countless enthusiastic fans throughout Europe. So no matter where they performed, whether the show was in NYC or in Warsaw, you could expect wildly excited crowd to show up. After 15 years of success, Swans decided to take a break in 1997. Their international fan base was disheartened, but their fans all held out hope that Swans would one day reunite. In 2010, the fans' hopes came true, and Swans reunited. Fans around the world were elated, and Swans brought their knockout experimental rock hits back to the stage.
