Beastie Boys Line Up Summer Tour Dates

Hip-hop veterans the Beastie Boys are back with their first album in six years, To The 5 Boroughs, and they’re planning a series of concerts this summer to celebrate.

So far, they have several June appearances scheduled, starting with a Las Vegas appearance at the Huntridge June 9, which will air several days later on MTV2. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, most tickets for that show will be given away through radio station contests, with a select amount being sold the day of the show for $2.

They’re also scheduled to appear at the Live 105 BFD in Mountain View, Calif., the KROQ Weenie Roast in Irvine, Calif., the Y100 FEZtival in Camden, N.J., and the KROCK Dysfunctional Family Picnic in Wantagh, N.Y.

In August, they’ll head to Japan for two Summer Sonic shows in Tokyo and Osaka. The Beasties largely shunned live instruments for To The 5 Boroughs, which includes few traces of the instrumental jams and full-band efforts of their last several albums. No word on whether their live performances will be similar back-to-basic affairs.
