Parachute are getting ready to kick off their tour tonight at Irving Plaza in NYC, alongside the release of their third album, Overnight. Check out the band’s top 5 venues, along with tour dates after the jump, and be sure to purchase a CD or buy concert tickets here!
The Pageant (St. Louis): They just do everything right here: pro staff, easy load-in, nice big stage, amazing sound.
Wembley Arena (London): Part of the awesomeness is knowing you’re right there at Wembley Stadium; the other part is the charming British staff.
The National (Richmond): One of the most comfortable backstages we’ve encountered, great food, amazing staff, in our home state of Virginia.
The Fillmore (San Francisco): So much history in this place: their collection of (original art) concert posters can keep you occupied for hours. Awesome chandeliers, nice big stage, amazing city.
Fox Theatre (Detroit): Stunning interior full of amazing 1920′s architecture. Hard to take the stage without feeling inspired by both the beauty of the place and those who have taken the same stage.
