Bikini Kill Announce Rescheduled 2022 Tour

After spiking tour dates in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Bikini Kill announced a rescheduled slate of shows across the U.S. and Europe for 2022.

The tour will launch April 29th, 2022 in Los Angeles and wrap September 17th in Redmond, Washington. Bikini Kill was set to embark on a North American tour last March, but those dates were moved to 2021 when Covid-19 started spreading across the country, then, eventually, delayed again. The 2022 run will also boast added shows in Los Angeles, New York, Austin, El Paso, Tucson, and Seattle.

“We have moved all of our tour dates to 2022 to ensure our fans, our crew, venues’ staff, and the band’s safety,” Bikini Kill said in a statement. “We know many of you have had your shows rescheduled more than once and appreciate your patience and flexibility.” Fans with tickets to canceled dates should contact the venue in question for refund information.

Bikini Kill, who reunited in 2019 for a run of shows, also announced a 25th-anniversary edition of their album Reject All American, with a 500-copy blue vinyl limited-edition available May 7th via Bandcamp.

Bikini Kill’s music was recently featured in the Netflix movie Moxie — directed by and starring Amy Poehler — which tells the tale of an aspiring Riot Grrrl. “I love that kids may get turned onto Bikini Kill and other feminist bands through the movie,” lead singer Kathleen Hanna told Rolling Stone. “Hopefully, some kids will be like ‘This sucks,’ and write their own songs.”
