Peter Bjorn and John are giving their fans some more this fall when they kick off their “All You Can Eat Tour” – a six week trek that finds the Swedes spending some quality time with their fans as they embark
on a city by city exploration.  Their longest US run to date, the tour kicks off in Chicago, IL on August 24th with the first of their mini-residences and will end on October 8th in San Francisco, CA with the last.  They’ll also set up camp in Toronto, New York and Los Angeles for extended stays with several other stops along the way – complete dates below.

The “All You Can Eat Tour” comes on the heels of their most recent sold out US headlining that was met with unbridled excitement.  The Boston Herald said, “PB&J delivered frenetic, guitar-stoked rock ’n’ roll…” and the Portland Tribune raved “…Peter, Bjorn & John put on a show that made the audience move, sing, shout and scream as they realized they were seeing something rare – the birth of a world class band…” and went on the call them “…one of the most compelling bands on the circuit right now….”
