“Courtney Love reminds the world why we cared in the first place.”
– Rolling Stone 3-« lead album review of NOBODY’S DAUGHTER
(April 19, 2010 - New York, NY) Legendary singer, songwriter, producer, and actress Courtney Love has confirmed that she will perform her first headlining North American tour this summer in support of NOBODY’S DAUGHTER, the new album by Hole on Mercury Records, set for release next week on April 27th. The tour kicks-off in June, with the first wave of ticket pre-sales beginning this Wednesday, April 21st, with general on-sale set for April 24th. (Please see tour dates below.)
To show their adoration for her fans, Hole has come up with a very special - and very limited - VIP ticket package in conjunction with the tour. The package will offer early entry to the venue, a limited edition Hole poster and laminate.
In advance of the official tour - and in celebration of NOBODY’S DAUGHTER hitting the racks - the new line-up of Hole will perform two shows at the Henry Fonda Theater in Los Angeles (April 22nd & 23rd, sold-out in advance) and the Terminal 5 in New York City (April 27th & 28th, also sold-out in advance). Those dates will dovetail with guest spots on CBS’s The Late Show with David Letterman (April 27th), The View (April 28th) and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live (April 29th). Hole also recently performed acoustic tracks from "Nobody's Daughter" for AOL Sessions.
With the release of NOBODY’S DAUGHTER just days away, “Skinny Little Bitch,” the new album’s first single continues to dominate rock radio formats. “With Hole’s snarling new single, ‘Skinny Little Bitch,’ Courtney Love has scored her first hit single since the ’90s,” raved Rolling Stone. “[It] made the playlists of more than 50 radio stations in early-March, making it the most-added modern-rock radio track for the week of its debut.”
NOBODY’S DAUGHTER is the first album by Hole in more than a decade (since 1998’s three-time Grammy-nominated Celebrity Skin).
