The Magnetic Fields

October 26 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm MDT

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of its release, the Magnetic Fields will continue to perform 69 Love Songs—the 3-disc masterwork that marked a significant breakthrough for the American band—in its entirety over the course of 2 nights, for the first time in over two decades.

New dates have been added in Summer/Fall of 2024, in which composer Stephin Merritt will be joined by original members Sam Davol and Shirley Simms, along with Chris Ewen and Anthony Kaczynski.

The Magnetic Fields will perform the album as it was originally performed in the early 2000’s: In full order over 2 nights, with one half of the triple-disc album performed each night. Featuring multiple singers, the band delivers signature orchestral-pop arrangements with cello, uke, guitars and keyboards.

Written and recorded entirely by Stephin Merritt, 69 Love Songs garnered universal acclaim at its 1999 release, landing on best of year-end lists in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, SPIN, LA Times and The Washington Post, and received notable praise from Pitchfork, The Guardian, Stereogum and much more.

The Magnetic Fields are the brainchild of Merritt, who also releases albums as the 6ths, the Gothic Archies and Future Bible Heroes. With the Magnetic Fields, he has written, produced, and recorded twelve albums to date. His song “The Book of Love” was performed by Peter Gabriel and appears in the film Shall We Dance as well as numerous other films and TV shows. Recently, the Magnetic Fields have been touring to support their 2020 release, Quickies, on Nonesuch records.
