Welcome to Night Vale
Mon, Apr 24
Capitol Theater: $27.50 - $32.50
Welcome to Night Vale, the wildly popular podcast that brings its dedicated listeners stories from the sleepy desert town of Night Vale, has announced a North American tour that will be hitting the Capitol Theater in Madison on MON, APR 24. Musical guest for this special date will include Erin McKeown. Delivering rich and nuanced drama in the form of a community radio show hosted by Cecil Palmer (played by Cecil Baldwin), Welcome to Night Vale has grown to be one of the most popular podcasts on the internet while remaining fiercely independent, entirely listener supported, and ad-free.
Since 2013, Welcome to Night Vale has toured a fully-realized live show with guest stars, live musical guests, live music from Disparition and Cecil himself, performing unheard scripts that complement and enhance the constantly evolving narrative of the podcast. For almost four years they’ve played sold out rooms in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, attracting a diverse fan base that hangs on Cecil’s every word.
