Mexico City

Pulp will play Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City on Monday, 23rd April.

Jarvis received a warm welcome when he played solo in Mexico back in 2008, which may have been a factor in Pulp deciding to play a concert there for the first now.

The publicity pictures apparently do not feature Russell Senior, suggesting that he will not play. Russell's fear of flying prevented him from attending most of the 2011 shows that took place outside the UK.

More live dates announced

New US dates in New York and San Francisco have been announced, plus a festival in Murcia, Spain.

From official email message:

The echo returns
Razzmatazz in the birthplace of
Pulp at Radio City Music Hall: has anything of this magnitude happened since Ziggy landed there in '73?
“Dunno mate - fantastic sight-lines though”
Golden Gate? Gotta be great
Murcia, have mercy on us
Enough already.....
…are you sure you're ready for this?

  • 11 April - Radio City Music Hall, New York, USA
  • 13 April - Coachella, Indio, California, USA
  • 17 April - Warfield, San Francisco, USA
  • 20 April - Coachella, Indio, California, USA
  • 4 May - SOS Festival, Murcia, Spain

It remains to be seen whether Russell Senior will take part in these shows. His fear of flying prevented him from playing most non-UK shows last year. The 'Can we conquer our phobias?' message on the official site might imply that it is at least a possibility this time.
