Due to an overwhelming response (read: sold out in five minutes) and popular demand, Portlandia the Tour is heading to six new cities! That’s right, Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live) and Carrie Brownstein (Wild Flag, Sleater-Kinney) from IFC’s hit original comedy Portlandia have just added a third week to their sold out live tour. Stops include Atlanta, Boston, Washington D.C., Nashville, Durham, NC, and Philadelphia.
Portlandia: The Tour features Armisen and Brownstein, the co-creators, writers and stars of Portlandia, bringing their romanticized and dreamy rendering of Portland, OR to life. They perform live music, present special clips from the show’s second season, share personal anecdotes about the creation and inspiration of Portlandia and even bring along surprise special guests in each market. Just watch this clip from the San Francisco show and you’ll get a sense of why you should go buy tickets the second they go on sale on January 12th.
Portlandia: The Tour is presented by IFC and Broadway Video in support of the second season of Portlandia which airs Fridays at 10pm ET/PT on IFC. The third leg of Portlandia: The Tour continues in Philadelphia, PA on Sunday, February 19, 2012 and comes to Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, February 21; tickets go on sale at 10:00AM (local time) on Thursday, January 12, 2012.
