SCISSOR SISTERS WILL JOIN LADY GAGA ON ADDITIONAL 2011 MONSTER BALL TOUR DATES

The band will open on a total of 17 dates, beginning with the February 19th show at Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ and including two consecutive nights at New York City’s Madison Square Garden Arena (February 21st & 22nd). See below for a complete list of dates featuring Scissor Sisters. The band recently completed a North American headlining jaunt that elicited stellar reviews.

“The smiles, showmanship, disco-era revivalism and finely calibrated ironies are the essence of Scissor Sisters, a New York City band that keeps people dancing to its in-jokes,” said The New York Times’ Jon Pareles, reviewing one of two sold-out shows at New York City’s Terminal 5. “Exuberant, booty-shaking stuff all the way…Under the gurgling, hedonistic dance-rock pulse, there are some arch observations, cautionary tales on living the nightlife. But that doesn’t get in the way of living that life for a night,” observed the Boston Herald. The New York Post praised the band’s “powerhouse set,” while The Huffington Post marveled: “For the next 100 minutes, we were treated to a nonstop sensual assault.”

Night Work,which recently debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums Chart and inside the Top 20 of The Billboard 200, is Scissor Sisters’ highest charting album to date.The New York Times hailed it as “dirty fun” and Entertainment Weekly awarded it an A-. “Three albums in, the Sisters are as gleefully hedonistic as ever,” said Rolling Stone while Q gave Night Work four stars in a two-page lead review, noting: “they translate anxiety into dancefloor electricity.”

The album follows Ta-Dah, which bowed at No. 1 on the UK album chart in 2006, and the band’s self-titled 2004 debut, which earned Scissor Sisters three BRIT awards. Scissor Sisters – comprising Jake Shears (vocals), Ana Matronic (vocals), Babydaddy (guitar/bass/keyboards) and Del Marquis (guitar) – have sold over seven million albums worldwide.
