Electronic outfit VNV Nation are on their final shows in their Compendium North American tour, and they've been performing in front of sold out crowds in Seattle, Los Angeles, and Denver. They're making a grand return to New York City on Saturday with a performance inside the Playstation Theater. For the NYC fans, this is the band's first time in the city since their back to back sold out performances inside Bowery Ballroom in the spring of 2014. The outfit were originally slated to be on Skinny Puppy's Alliance of Sound tour later that year, but they pulled out before the tour took off.
What makes this current tour unique? Well, the band will be playing a three hour set filled with fan favorites and some deep cuts from their 20 year history with a special light show added. Unlike most of their other tours, there will be no opening acts on board for this special occasion. The band, however, will have a special guest in tow. Apoptygma Berzerk frontman Stephan Groth recently joined the tour during its Chicago date over the weekend, and he is slated to appear in a guest spot for the New York City performance. His outfit just released their new album Exit Popularity Contest earlier this month.
Tickets for this performance have been disappearing quickly, so be sure to get yours here. Doors for the show will open at 7 p.m. with a showtime at 8 p.m. This show is for those ages 16 and over. After the tour, VNV Nation will head back to Europe for a handful of Compendium shows in November. In December, the outfit will perform their albums Automatic and Empires inside small clubs in Germany. As one would expect, a vast majority of these shows are sold out. The outfit will also make an appearance at the Dark Storm Festival in Germany, which will also feature performances from Diary of Dreams, Combichrist, Suicide Commando, and Das Ich.
