Where It’s At, Eh

Beck Announces North American Tour including Canadian Dates

Did you realize Odelay is twelve years old now? Time
certainly does fly but I think that one has aged particularly well. Heck it still makes me dance recklessly in my office chair. News today that the perpetually youthful and mononym”ed” popster, Beck has announced a slew of additional dates for his North American tour this fall. The funky loser will be spreading the Modern Guilt throughout the continent with two stops In America’s hat, including one in Toronto on October 5th and one in Montreal the following day.

Beck has also announced that his father David Campbell (and Canadian musician extraordinaire) will be joining him onstage at an upcoming Hollywood Bowl show in Los Angeles. This will mark the first time the father-son pair has performed together live.

For those unaware, Beck’s father has a long and storied career in the music business as a composer/arranger. In the senior Campbell’s time, he has racked up credits on more than four hundred recordings and worked on sessions with everyone from Marvin Gaye to Johnny Cash. Campbell will take on the conductor duties for his son and lead the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra String section. (No word if he’ll be pulling out jives or jamboree hand outs.)
