Grimes : Grimes Announces Mythical Gymnastics Tour, Watch MTV PUSH Session
8th June 2012

With a handful of upcoming festival appearances, a string of Canadian dates with Skrillex and Diplo next month, a first foray in to Japan and a return to Europe including two sold-out shows at Heaven in London already announced, Grimes is today unveiling the Mythical Gymnastics Tour. An extensive North American Fall headlining tour, Grimes will be joined on the road by both Myths and Elite Gymnastics, hence its title. Full details can be found below.

Also appearing today is Claire's MTV PUSH live version of 'Genesis'. For those in the US, you can watch it here. It will be available in Europe next week. This comes after her recent nomination for Most Innovative Solo Performer at this year's MTV O Music Awards, where you can vote for her here. As part of these awards, Claire will also be joining The Flaming Lips on June 28th in New Orleans when they try to break Jay-Z’s world record for the most live concerts in 24 hours.
