Sunny Day Real Estate Reopening Their Tour Diary

Jun 22nd, 2009 // 8 Comments

After much speculation over whether or not they would join the many bands from the ’90s reuniting this year (fueled by lead singer Jeremy Enigk telling a Seattle rock station that the band had gotten together in March), alt-rock legends Sunny Day Real Estate have decided to get back together to play their first concerts since 2000. So far, two shows have been confirmed: a show at the Paramount in their hometown of Seattle on Oct. 16, and a concert at San Francisco’s Fillmore on Oct. 13. More dates TK, I hope? A few songs from their catalog after the jump.


“In Circles”


“Killed By An Angel”

Hayley Williams is going to be so stoked.

  1. and here’s the sdre ticketmaster page, which so far has one date in atlanta on its docket…

  2. @sinceyoubeensean: God just contort my eyes into a state of permanent tears if that ever happens.

    I probably will not be able to afford concert-going by the time these tickets evaporate, but I am still shaking with excitement.

  3. I’m an unashamed fan of The Rising Tide, no matter what anyone says.

  4. @TheRunningboard7: It’s a perfectly fine album…they all are. I’m particularly fond of How it Feels to Be Something On, but could draw liberally from each of them if making a best-of mix.

  5. @sinceyoubeensean: I saw the Get-Up Kids open for Weezer and it was the biggest slice of hokum I’ve ever seen from a band with “cred.” Your average Jimmy Buffett tribute band was less cheesy.
