    Caetano Veloso to Take "Abraçaço" Tour to United States
    Fernando Young

    Caetano Veloso will bring his Abraçaço world tour to the United States in September, starting at the Filmore Miami Beach on September 13 and culminating in two nights at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) for the Nonesuch Records at BAM celebration of the label's 50th anniversary. The tour also includes stops in Seattle, Davis, Oakland, and Los Angeles, where he makes his Hollywood Bowl debut on a bill with Andrew Bird and Veloso's Nonesuch labelmate Devendra Banhart. See below for all of the scheduled dates; for additional details, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Veloso and his Banda Cê—Pedro Sá on electric guitar, Ricardo Dias Gomes on bass and Rhodes piano, and Marcelo Callado on drums—performed at the Barbican in London in May as part of Explorations: The Sound of Nonesuch Records, the Barbican's own month-long celebration of the label's 50th anniversary. The concert earned five stars from the Times and Guardian, both of which called it a "masterclass," and The Arts Desk. The Times also called it "a perfect evening," the Guardian "exquisite." The Arts Desk says: "Caetano Veloso gets more extraordinary."

    Nonesuch Records released Caetano Veloso’s new album Abraçaço in North America this past March. The album, which was released in 2012 in South America and Europe, won a Latin Grammy for Best Singer-Songwriter Album and earned the #1 spot on Rolling Stone Brazil’s Best National Albums of 2012 list. Produced by Pedro Sá and Caetano Veloso’s son Moreno Veloso, Abraçaço is the final installment of a trilogy with the youthful trio he employed on 2007’s and 2009’s zii e zie known as the Banda Cê. “We are people of different generations sharing similar musical and human interests,” Veloso says. A fusion of the traditional Tropicália style and the indie pop of contemporary Rio, Abraçaço includes 11 original songs written by Veloso.

    To pick up a copy of Abraçaço in North America, head to iTunes or the Nonesuch Store.

    David Byrne's American Utopia tour made its way to the UK for a week of sold-out shows, all met with rave reviews, starting with the NME's declaration: "The American Utopia tour may just be the best live show of all time." "An unforgettably unique, imaginative, and kaleidoscopically entrancing spectacle of music, dance, and theatre," exclaims the Telegraph. "This was something special." "One of the most mind-blowingly meticulous and awe-inspiring productions you could ever hope to see," says the Independent. "Perfection." "Daringly ambitious and full of joy," says the Evening Standard. "Mass exposure to his glorious, life-affirming American Utopia show alone would make the world a better place," says the Scotsman.
