In case you haven’t noticed, Gogol Bordello’s website has
been down, causing the world the wait in mystery as the Gypsy-punks concocted
their latest plan for global domination traveling.

 

After traipsing around global festival circuit and with
tour dates throughout South America, Europe and Asia this summer – including
performances at Rock-am-Ring in Germany,
Get Loaded in the Park in England,
and a performance at Fuji Rock in Japan
– Gogol Bordello returned to North America
last week.  The Gogols kicked-off this
leg of their tour in Atlanta then headed to
Austin City Limits on September 26 and will be headlining the Detour Festival
in Los Angeles on
October 4.

 

This winter, Gogol Bordello will perform six shows under
the title “The Wonderlust Kings and Queens Tour: La Familia in Full
Swing.” The tour will begin with three performances at New
York’s Webster Hall before travelling to Philadelphia for a New Year’s Eve performance
at The Electric Factory. 

 
In other news, Gogol Bordello front-man, Eugene Hutz will also be seen in
October in the Madonna-directed film, ‘Filth & Wisdom’ in which he stars in
the lead role.  According to a press release,
“Madonna and Eugene’s first collaboration was this past summer when they
performed together at Live Earth in London.
Eugene and
Sergey performed a Romanesque version of “La Isla Bonita” that
combined Gogol Bordello’s gypsy-stomper “Lela Pala Tute” with Madonna
singing in Romanes.”  WTF?  

 
In addition, GogolBordello.com will re-launch this week, giving the world a
much needed glimpse into their harlequin laced world.
