Retro look for Beastie Boys tour


With the first Beastie Boys tour date of the summer approaching soon, we are beginning to hear a little bit about how the tour will be staged.

A source working on the tour tells us that the band are "really into" the suits and retro motif. You can expect them to don the same sharp-looking suits they first wore in Las Vegas last fall and have been sporting in the studio every day as they worked on their new album The Mix-Up. (Check out O Watch to see photos of the Beastie Boys working in the studio.) The Adidas tracksuits have been permanently stored away in the warehouse.

For the stage design, expect a retro look and feel. The band have requested a visual show of abstract paintings from the 40s and 50s be assembled for projection during their performance.

The threads, the stage visuals, and the new instrumentals combined will transport fans to a time and place they have never been before. Like crazy, like wow!
