Mini Mansions Tickets
There are few bands more highly regarded than Mini Mansions on the indie rock scene at the moment. The LA trio have sold tens of thousands of copies of their two albums so far, and Mini Mansions tickets are known to sell out at a phenomenal rate. Beloved by fans for their glam stylings and frenetic performances, Mini Mansions are ready to take the step up from a critically acclaimed live band to a major league rock outfit.
Mini Mansions are planning a major world tour, the North American leg of which will see them joined on the road by the cult rock band My Morning Jacket. They are due to play shows in St. Augustine, Orlando, Miami and Miami Beach in Florida, Atlanta, Georgia and Birmingham, Alabama. From there, they plan to head to Europe to dates in Copenhagen, Cologne, Hamburg and Lausanne before touring the United Kingdom. The band are due to play The Workmans Club in Dublin, Belfast's Customs House Square, King Tit's in Edinburgh and end the tour by performing at the world-famous Reading and Leeds Festival in England.
Mini Mansions are known to slip cover versions of classic songs into their sets. During their 2014-15 tour of Great Britain, they often played an electro version of Blondie's "Heart Of Glass." They have also been known to feature unannounced guest stars during gigs: the Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner previously appeared onstage mid-set to lend vocals to their track "Vertigo.
Mini Mansions were formed in 2009 by Queens of the Stone Age bassist Michael Shuman after the LA band decided to go on hiatus after finishing their Era Vulgaris tour. Shuman plays drums and guitars in Mini Mansions, while the line-up is completed by Tyler Parkford on keyboards and Zach Dawes on bass. The trio are noted for wearing colourful floral and pastel suits while onstage.
Mini Mansions released their eponymous EP to great acclaim in 2009. Comprised of nine tracks, their style was compared to the pop sensibilities of The Beatles and the glam stomp of Marc Bolan and T-Rex. The British music press in particular took the band to their hearts, and NME feted them as one of the bands to watch out for in 2010.
Mini Mansions released their first full-length album in 2010, also called Mini Mansions. The record was well received, with critics praising the strong, quirky songwriting as fun and emotive. The band consolidated the success of their debut by releasing a second EP, 2012's ...Besides..., which found its way into many critics' end of year 'Best Of' lists. Thire second full-length record, The Great Pretenders, was released in the first half of 2015 and again met with universal acclaim.
A live show by Mini Mansions is truly thrilling stuff, and the evening is a long collection of highlights. Whether it's Zach Dawes playing bass with his teeth, Michael Shuman thrashing out rhythms on the drum kit before powering through riffs on his Fender or Parkford stunning the crowd with his angular, ferocious synth lines, it's hard for the audience to peel their eyes away from the stage.
