Belle and Sebastian Reveals Tour Dates for North American Leg in 2023

Belle and Sebastian

Belle and Sebastian released tour dates of its 2023 North American leg.

After completing several dates in Europe this winter, the indie group will kick off a new date in Mexico on April 24th.

The tour takes the band on the road through May 19 in Missouri. Check out the full list of Belle and Sebastian tour dates below.

Belle and Sebastian’s first studio album in seven years, A Bit of Previous, was delivered in May.

The band then eventually released the non-album single “A Bit of Previous”. Additionally, they came to NPR’s Tiny Desk to play “Unnecessary Drama,” “Working Boy in New York City,” “Reclaim the Night,” and “Judy and the Dream of Horses.” 

Formation in Glasgow

Belle and Sebastian, an indie pop group, was formed in Scotland, more precisely in Glasgow, in 1996. The group is made up of seven members: Stuart Murdoch, Stevie Jackson, Sarah Martin, Chris Geddes, Richard Colburn, Bobby Kildea and Dave McGowan.

They are frequently set side by side to acts like The Smiths and Nick Drake.

The band takes its name from a 1965 children’s book written by French author Cécile Aubrey. The book was later adapted for television.

Belle and Sebastian achieved limited commercial success.

In 1998, the group dropped their third LP, The Boy with the Arab Strap. It secured the top 12 spot in the UK charts. The LP earned them an NPR interview and good reviews from Rolling Stone and the Village Voice.
