Coheed and Cambria’s Big New Year’s Announcement

Co&Ca 2001-2011.  In celebration of our 10th anniversary: An Evening With Coheed and Cambria.  Spring 2011.  Full dates and details will be announced Monday, January 10th at 1pm EST.

Coheed and Cambria NYCIn 2005 Coheed and Cambria performed 4 “Evening With” shows at intimate venues.  It all kicked off in Chicago, Illinois on July 3rd at Metro.  The second was July 10th at Avalon in Hollywood, California.  The third “An Evening With Coheed and Cambria” concert was on July 22nd at Irving Plaza in New York City.  Finally there was one in Orlando, Florida at Hard Rock Cafe on August 9th, 2005.

New York City sold out in under a minute.  Cobalt and Calcium got a hold of a pair of tickets and in turn held a “scavenger hunt” contest giving members an opportunity to attend the epic event.  The evening was so intimate that there wasn’t even a barricade between the stage and the audience!  New York’s K-Rock 2 recorded the set and aired it on their streaming radio station.  The Hollywood show was also recorded and several of the songs were included on the bonus EP contained in Good Apollo I’m Burning Star IV, Vol. 1: From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness when purchased from Best Buy.  The Orlando performance was a shorter set and aired on MTV’s Nokia Live: Hard Rock Cafe on November 23rd, 2005.

During these shows Coheed and Cambria performed “Final Cut” for the first time in the United States.  They also performed “2113” for the first time, anywhere.  Additionally it was the first time many got a taste of the hit single, “Welcome Home” (which was tentatively titled “Kashmire” for its similarity to Led Zeppelin’s classic, “Kashmir”).  In Orlando, Coheed and Cambria performed “Apollo I: The Writing Writer” for the second time (the first was 3 days prior at the free Central Park Summerstage concert in NYC).

The Evening With… shows were especially memorable due to the fact that there were absolutely no opening bands.  The shows were just Coheed and Cambria, starting the night off with a 5 song acoustic set (4 in Orlando) and finishing off with a 12 song set (6 in Orlando).

It looks like this announcement means that Coheed and Cambria will stop at several cities to perform their debut record, Second Stage Turbine Blade, along with current drummer- Chris Pennie.  One date has already been announced…  April 30th, 2011 at the House of Blues in Chicago, Illinois.
