UK instrumental pro rockers Maybeshewill have confirmed an upcoming New York show on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at The Bowery Ballroom in New York City. The band announced they will be embarking on their last tour as a band in 2016, and a PledgeMusic campaign has been launched and they commented on this:
Making a show in North America happen has been a challenge for Maybeshewill, but something we’ve wanted to do for a very long time. We’ve come so close on so many occasions, and with time finally running out we’ve decided that we have to make that leap, if there is any way we can.
We have announced a show at The Bowery Ballroom in New York City on the 20th February 2016.
Unfortunately we aren’t able to add any more shows whilst we’re over there, but we hope that this will at least allow a few of you to come and meet us in the middle.
That said, this is a big leap for us, and we’re going to need your help if we’re going to make it happen – whether or not you’re able to make it to the show we’ve put together some packages of things we think you guys will like, and started a PLEDGE campaign which will help us offset some of the costs of flights and visas and all the stuff that goes along with playing a show on the other side of the world.
We’re not a band who take asking for this sort of thing from our fans lightly, so we’ve tried to put together some things that we think you guys would be genuinely interested in having – especially as we’re increasingly aware that there are people we won’t be able to see on the final tour, and who might never be able to see us live – so whether or not you’re based in North America, hopefully there are some things here that will interest you, and maybe you can help get us that little bit closer to playing for as many people as possible before our time is up.
Amongst other things we’ve got an exclusive t-shirt design which will only be available to pledgers, two huge backdrops from previous Maybeshewill tours, and a whole selection of stuff which you can get signed to whoever you wish, including full final tour posters which will also only be available here.
CHECK OUT THE PLEDGE CAMPAIGN HERE, AND HELP US IF YOU’RE ABLE: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/maybeshewill-usa
The campaign is only running until the end of January, so get in quickly!
If you’re able to help, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts,
