Kim Gordon announces ‘No Home’ Tour another first in a four decade career as a creative pioneer in the realms of art, music, literature and fashion: her first ever international headlining solo tour. The NO HOME TOUR follows the autumn 2019 release of the Sonic Youth and Body/Head founding member and literary and visual arts icon’s innovative and critically acclaimed solo debut, No Home Record on Matador.
This marks the first time ever that Gordon will be touring solo and performing songs from No Home Record live. NO HOME TOUR will launch at London’s 6 Music Festival, closely followed by a Music Keynote Address at SXSW in Austin, TX featuring Kim in conversation with New York Times bestselling author Rachel Kushner. The international tour resumes in May with stops in the UK (including newly announced dates in Manchester and Bristol), Europe and North America into September. Tickets can be purchased HERE and full list of dates below.
No Home Record can be streamed or purchased HERE.
Gordon’s touring band will consist of a cast of luminaries, featuring Kim on guitar on vocals, Yves Rothman as music director, Sarah Register on guitar, Emily Retsas on bass, and Sterling Laws on drums.
“Why a solo record? And why now?,” Gordon mused of the upcoming solo debut. “I don’t know, but it wouldn’t have happened without the persistence of Justin Raisen. Living in LA the last few years it feels like home, but the transience of the place makes it feel sometimes like no home.”
Since co-founding the seminal Sonic Youth in the early 80’s, Kim Gordon has remained at the nexus of music, fashion, art and (more recently) books and film. In the past few years alone, Gordon has debuted in the #1 spot on the NY Times Bestseller List with her 2015 memoir Girl In A Band, acted alongside Joaquin Phoenix and Jonah Hill under the direction of Gus Van Sant (in 2018’s Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot), released music and performed as one half of Body/Head alongside Bill Nace, and opened multiple solo-exhibitions at internationally renowned museums.
