There are always more dates in the pipeline, so if these aren’t close to you, take a look at the others. If your town isn’t listed yet, don’t despair – we’re hitting as many places as humanly possible and will try and visit you soon. (Denver, Riot Fest has been moved to a new location: Sports Authority Field at Mile High. And for those close to the border, we’ve just been added to the line-up for Moe.Down Festival in Turin, NY)
Your friends, Gogol Bordello
We’re runnin a special promotion on our merchandise right now, with a bunch of shirts and accessories going for only 5 bucks a piece. If you’re not head to toe in GB wear, now’s your chance to rectify this! Spread the word, friends – everything must go!
And don’t forget we are hitting the bricks once more starting this week: first Europe, then back to Canada and the USA, and then a little more Europe for good measure. Check the listings for your closest show… we’ll see you very soon!
It’s all happening in our tour schedule right now. We’re planning a crazy summer of shows and hitting as many towns and countries as physically possible.
This week we’re hitting Colorado twice and then heading back to Vegas for another back-to-back party weekend. Then it’s on to Greece and Turkey, and a little make-up session with the places we had to cancel on in March. Our friends in Russia and Ukraine, please be patient: we’ll announce rescheduled shows there as soon as we can, but it’s not easy right now. We have not forgotten you!
This is important: we had to cancel our show in Herford, Germany and move the two in Milan and Ljubljana. We’re sorry to our fans in Herford, but it could not be avoided. If you’re coming to the Milan/Ljubljana shows, check the tour schedule for new dates.
We’ll be in Europe thru May and June, before heading back to Canada and the USA for a run through the northeast. And right after that it’s the European festival season.
Like we said, it’s all happening. Find out when we’ll be hitting your city here: http://www.gogolbordello.com/tour
If yours isn’t listed right now, stay tuned: more gigs are being added every week. In fact, we just added another show in Luxembourg today!
See you soon…

We are sad to say that brother Pedro has broken his arm and we need to cancel the March tour. Pedro is expected to make a full recovery but is under strict doctor’s orders that he cannot perform until April. Ticket refunds will be issued to all ticket holders at the original point of purchase. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes our fans and we hope to reschedule this tour soon.
This new slogan in support of peaceful Kiev Maidan on my tour guitar in translation literally means: “Ukraine, not an outskirt but a centre.” But full meaning of it comes through only in Ukrainian: “Ukraine is not an outskirt as it is romoured to be, but a centre of new rising consciousness.” Yes, paradoxiacally, “Ukraine”, which is historically and geographically the origin of Russia (see Kievan Rus state), literally means “far corner, or an outskirt”. This confusion perhaps will get straightened out now as people of Ukraine r putting themselves in the avanguarde of positive political consciousness. Is there even a one person who has not been impressed with such a tremendous peaceful actions of Kiev Maidan people and their delicate organization!
Word “Okraina”(outskirt) indeed exists in russians… however it is equally well understood as an “outskirt” by ukrainians, even though it is not part of ukrainian standard official vocabulary. Simply because both languages are closely related and indeed come from the same “drevne-slavjansky”(old east slavic) language. Consequently the compartmentalization of the words and their exact storage adress is entirely artificial and has no real life basis.
Yo, all our party people in Brussels! You know we had to cancel our show in your town due to weather madness, but now we come to you with GOOD news!

If you can’t be there, we are adding new dates for 2014 all the time. Stay tuned to our Tour page and check our Facebook for up to the minute info.
