Man Man and Gogol Bordello tour together, nominee for craziest concert ever

Okay I made that last part up obviously, but still, if you’ve ever seen/heard anything from either of these two over-the-top and ambitious acts you know exactly what I’m talking about. And the fact that the two are touring together for a short stint at the end of May into early June is some of the more exciting concert news I’ve heard lately. Between Man Man‘s absurd dress and costuming, and Gogol‘s, let’s say “interaction” with the crowd, the possibilities of what you could see or experience on that night are endless. I really like how one Pitchfork writer puts it:

“Even though you know he’s going to launch himself onto the bass drum that the audience is holding aloft, it’s still pretty fucking nuts when he actually does it.”

And if that recollection of a Gogol Bordello show doesn’t make you want to line-up for tickets then I’m just not quite sure anything will, ha. Check out some videos below of each act live, and the list of their Midwest dates.
