Manu Chao Kicks Off Short West-Coast Tour Tomorrow


If ever you start to feel a little too proud of yourself, remember this: Manu Chao sings in more than half a dozen different languages. The musical legend enjoys taking his multi-cultural tunes all over the globe, as evidenced by his latest release, the live 2CD/DVD set, Baionarena, which features a full concert, music videos and a 30-minute video tour diary.

Now, fresh off some Japanese dates, Chao will take a brief tour of the U.S. west coast, which will include his first-ever Seattle show. He’ll be performing in a trio setup, an example of which you can watch below the following dates:

12 – Seattle, Wash. @ Paramount Theatre
13 – Portland, Ore. @ Crystal Ballroom
15 – San Francisco, Calif. @ The Warfield Theatre
16 – San Bernadino, Calif. @ Smokeout Fest
