    Michael Wilson

    Dr. John (a.k.a. Mac Rebennack), following the recent release of his latest album, Locked Down, on Nonesuch Records, kicks off a two-week tour of the United States with a show at The Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia, tonight and a set at Crawfish Fest in Augusta, New Jersey, tomorrow. The tour will feature music from Locked Down, which Rolling Stone called his "best album in four decades," and favorite tunes from throughout the New Orleans legend's 50+ year career.

    Joining Mac for the tour will be his band The Lower 911, featuring fellow New Orleans-based musician Jon Cleary. In addition to his own headline shows, Dr. John will join Gov't Mule for several shows across the South and will be a special guest of Iron & Wine for a show at the Ravinia Festival. At the end of the month, the tour heads to Europe for several club shows and festival sets through July.

    To pick up a copy of Locked Down, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include an instant download of the complete album at checkout; Locked Down is also available there to purchase as MP3s and FLAC lossless files.

    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. "An extraordinary, ecstatic show."
