Aimee Mann and Ted Leo are both awesome musicians in their own right, but combined as The Both, they’re even more fun. And you know what else is fun? The holidays! The Both is heading out on a special holiday tour—their first in over three years—that’s sure to spread cheer to even the Grinch-iest of participants. The shows will follow the same format as the old holiday shows, chock full of original music, the Christmas classics you know and love, videos, sketches, and a ton of special guests. The festivities start in Los Angeles, CA at Largo at the Coronet on December 3 before heading to San Francisco’s The Fillmore; Boston’s The Wilbur Theatre; Tarrytown, NY; Westbury, NY; New York, NY; and Alexandria, VA’s The Birchmere. Ticketing information hasn’t yet been released, so visit The Both’s website for further details.

Both Aimee Mann and Ted Leo have had formidable careers on their own, Mann as a solo artist and Leo as the front man of Ted Leo and the Pharmacists. Their collaboration started during a concert tour in 2012, from which the duo started writing songs together. They performed their first show together as #BOTH (making the name a hashtag) on March 8, 2013.
