TOUR WATCH: Polyphonic Spree Announce Holiday Extravaganza Tour
By Staff on September 18, 2012
The Polyphonic Spree are set to release their upcoming album, Holidaydream, on October 22. And to celebrate this release and the holiday season, the band will be hitting the road for their Holiday Extravaganza Tour.
Holiday Extravaganza is also the 10th anniversary or the band's annual show, but this time they are taking it on the road. All dates are available below.
In regards to Holidaydream, Polyphonic Spree founder Tim DeLaughter said, "We wanted to make a record that has the sentiment of the holidays without the melodic connotation telegraphing the obvious. We took many of the standards that we all knew and loved as kids and rewrote the music and melody to give them a ‘new’ life while leaving others somewhat true to form."
The tour will essentially be a roaming theater production that includes zoo demonstrations, break dancers, children singers, comedians, improvisational comedy troupes, freestyle rappers, traditional bands, bell choirs, a Charles Dickens-inspired play with The Polyphonic Spree serving as the actors, and tap dancing grandmas. Surely, this sounds like something you shouldn't miss.

8 - San Francisco, CA - Slim's
11 - Chicago, IL - Logan Square Auditorium
14 - Philadelphia, PA - Trocadero Theatre
