Bleachers & Charli XCX Do America | 08.09.15

qh_kensrueCatch Charli XCX and Bleachers at The Pageant on August 9, and see the true pop tour of the summer.



Coming off Grammy-winning success with his other group, fun., Jack Antonoff brings us his newest project, which is off and running. Under the moniker Bleachers, Antonoff & Co. are touring the album once again through the U.S., stopping in St. Louis on August 9 at The Pageant in the Delmar Loop.


Driven by the success of their debut album, Strange Desire, Bleachers have risen in popularity steadily since the album’s release. With tracks like “Wild Heart,” “Rollercoaster,” and the immediately catchy “I Wanna Get Better,” the album is pop music at its finest. Live, the band is a bit edgier than on disc, but it makes for a fresh delivery of the songs.


Joining Bleachers on this tour is English singer Charli XCX. Fueld by the heat of her singles, “You (Ha Ha)” and “Fancy” with Iggy Azalea, the 22-year-old singer is touring the U.S. in support of her latest release, Sucker. She has contributed material for such artists as Rhianna and Gwen Stefani. Charli XCX is currently working on her fourth studio album, as well as touring, with previous support tours including those with the likes of Paramore, Katy Perry, and Coldplay. Eclectic and always expanding her range, she has been compared to vocalists like Siouxsie Sioux and early Madonna. | Marc Farr
