Russian feminist rabble-rousers Pussyriot have announced their first live music performance art tour throughout America, which is slated to be a subversive mix of activist art and live set. Pussyriot is best known for their two-year prison sentence for "hooliganism" stemming from their feminist art collective protest against the re-election of Putin as the President of Russia.
The performances will include Nadya Tolokonnikova amongst others, the member of the group whose identity was unfortunately revealed following a performance of the punk prayer "Virgin Mary, Put Putin Away" in Moscow's Savior's Cathedral in 2012.
The headlining dates are being described as a marriage between performance art and a concert, and they are also slated to take the stage at Boston Calling and Hangout Festival in 2018. A full list of their live tour dates is available here.
