The first band to grace the cover of SPIN magazine before an album was even released, Koenig, Baio, Tomson and former member Rostam Batmanglij met in 2005 at Columbia University in New York City. “Even without an album, Vampire Weekend has made one of the year’s most impressive debuts,” said The New York Times of the band’s earliest recordings.The accolades continued through the album's release, as Vampire Weekend appeared on 2008 Top 10 lists of Time, NPR, Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, Pitchfork and countless others, as well as winning the NME award for “Best New American Indie/Alternative Band." The band also made its first of three appearances on Saturday Night Live, as well as debut performances on The Late Show with David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Since their debut, Vampire Weekend have released two additional albums, both of which debuted at #1 and have been certified Gold in the U.S.: 2010’s GRAMMY-nominated Contra, and 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City, which won that year's GRAMMY for Best Alternative Album.
The Father of the Bride Tour will feature the band’s biggest headline shows to date, including a Friday, August 30th show at Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk.
