In the middle of their highly successful (and sold-out) European tour, The Dandy Warhols were notified by international dispatch that their latest record, Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia , had achieved GOLD status for the country of Australia, and was nearing gold in several other countries. Needless to say, the band was flushed with excitement. (Peter even cracked a smile!) Upon hearing the news, the band took a vote: four to one they agreed they would just simply have to tour Australia and pay their devoted Aussie fans back for the honor. (The one hold-out was Troy, who was spooked by rumors of wild dingos.) The dates for these May shows in Australia and New Zealand are posted on the SHOWS page.
