Danny Zelisko Presents an evening with Steven Wilson and his North American Tour 2018 at 7:30pm on Monday, May 14, 2018 at the historic Celebrity Theatre. Reserved tickets go on sale Monday, October 2nd at www.celebritytheatre.com.
Steven Wilson released his critically acclaimed new album To the Bone this past August, with international music critics lauding the artist for continuing to expand his musical boundaries.
Wilson will return to North America for a Spring 2018 tour in support of the album. Wilson, described by Planet Rock as “one of the most prolific and unrivalled artists of our time,” will launch the trek on April 20 in Quebec. The tour runs through May 14 in Phoenix, Arizona and will stop in major cities along the way.
Wilson’s live performances are often unforgettable, like the time he performed at New York City’s The Beacon Theater without being able to use his voice. It was a show that Rolling Stone hailed as “stirring” and highlighted the “pop determination that runs through Wilson’s dense layers of shadow and rhythmic restlessness.”
The video for “Nowhere Now” will be released worldwide tomorrow, September 19. “Nowhere Now” is a gloriously soaring paean to the joys of everyday escapism. The video for the track was shot on location at and around Atacama Large Millimeter Array (Alma) in Chile – the world famous, high altitude radio telescope array. The video was directed and edited by Wilson’s long time visual collaborator Lasse Hoile.
Upon release, To the Bone debuted at a career-high Top 3 on the Independent Albums chart, and Top 10 on the Billboard Top Rock and Alternative Albums Charts. It also landed at #3 on the UK charts, which was another career high, and at #1 on the Finnish Albums Chart. Press praise was constant and universally positive for To the Bone.
Mojo awarded it a four-star review, noting the album “keeps its pop and prog influences in a near perfect balance,” while Uncut labeled it “a lush and ambitious piece of progressive pop.” Q enthused that To the Bone is “wonderfully executed… pop brilliance” and Prog labeled it “fervent and meticulous.”
“Repeated listening reveals that Wilson’s brand of progressive pop is so multivalently textured and expertly crafted that its aesthetic and sonic palette refuse to be contained under a single rock umbrella. As such, To the Bone stands with Wilson’s best work.” —All Music Guide
“A pop/rock record this beautifully organic and well-crafted deserves to reach many ears, and Wilson should be proud of its many merits as one of this year’s most thoroughly enjoyable experiences so far.” — Sputnik Music
