Swedish indie-folk musician Kristian Matsson, better known as The Tallest Man on Earth, may have had to cancel a few of his fall tour dates, but fans will have plenty of chances to enjoy his live show in 2020.
Matsson previously announced a number of shows in March and recently added a handful of East Coast dates in May. Newly announced dates include stops in Boston (Tickets), Philadelphia (Tickets), and two dates at Webster Hall in New York on May 14 (Tickets) and May (Tickets). Tickets for March dates are currently on sale now with tickets for May dates going on sale Friday, Nov. 15, with select presales currently available. Matsson will be joined by Courtney Marie Andrews on select dates.
The Tallest Man on Earth released a critically acclaimed new album I Love You. It’s a Fever Dream. in April 2019. The album — his first in four years — followed 2015's Dark Bird Is Home, a release focused on his divorce.
In a statement, Matsson said of I Love You. It’s a Fever Dream., "Making the album, I was thinking a lot about the lenses we view our lives through. For some reason, our worst tendencies seem to be carried out so loudly, while our best can go unnoticed. I’ve come to realize that some of the most powerful, most inspiring moments in my life have been the most subtle and that so often the thing that deserves my attention, is trying the least to get it."
