Singer/songwriter Steven Wilson, who released his critically acclaimed new album To the Bone this past August, is returning to North America for a Spring 2018 tour. Described by Planet Rock as “one of the most prolific and unrivaled artists of our time,” the tour begins on April 19 in Albany, NY, and ends May 14 in Phoenix, AZ, with highlights including two nights at New York City’s Playstation Theater and two nights at Chicago’s Vic Theatre. The complete itinerary is below.

Wilson’s live performances are often unforgettable, like the time he performed at New York City’s Beacon Theater without being able to use his voice. It was a show that Rolling Stone hailed as “stirring” and highlighted the “pop determination that runs through Wilson’s dense layers of shadow and rhythmic restlessness.”

Upon release, To the Bone debuted at a career-high Top 3 on the Independent Albums chart, and Top 10 on the Billboard Top Rock and Alternative Albums Charts. It also landed at #3 on the UK charts, which was another career high, and at #1 on the Finnish Albums Chart.

Press praise was constant and universally positive for To the Bone with international music critics lauding Wilson for continuing to expand his musical boundaries. Mojo awarded it a four-star review, noting the album “keeps its pop and prog influences in a near perfect balance,” while Uncut labeled it “a lush and ambitious piece of progressive pop.” Q enthused that To the Bone is “wonderfully executed… pop brilliance” and Prog labeled it “fervent and meticulous.” Below is a sampling of further accolades the press has bestowed upon To the Bone.

 

“The immaculately clean production, thought-provoking lyrics, and refined aesthetic make it an excellent introduction to the qualities that make Steven Wilson such an important songwriter and producer in modern music, prog or otherwise.” –Under The Radar Mag

“Repeated listening reveals that Wilson’s brand of progressive pop is so multivalently textured and expertly crafted that its aesthetic and sonic palette refuse to be contained under a single rock umbrella. As such, To the Bone stands with Wilson’s best work.” –All Music Guide

“In post-truth times, joyous music may seem absurd, but Wilson makes it, and the times we live in, feel alright.” –Pop Matters

“To the Bone ends up as the most catchy-yet-heavy work he’s made under his own name (and perhaps ever, comparable only to his early-noughties albums with Porcupine Tree).” –All About Jazz
