[News] Grimes Announces Mythical Gymnastics Tour

Claire Boucher, better known by her moniker Grimes, has had an incredibly quick rise to fame over the past year, and her busy schedule has just gotten busier. Following appearances at several summer festivals, an opening performance for The Flaming Lips, as well as touring alongside Skirllex and Diplo on an across-Canada-by-train journey, Grimes will go on a massive headlining tour. Starting on September 25th, the aptly titled Mythical Gymnastics tour will see Grimes accompanied by Elite Gymnastics and Myths for a full month of performances all across North America.
