Beck, real name Bek Hansen, is an American singer, songwriter, producer and musician from Los Angeles, California. Starting his music career in 1993, his debut single, Loser, became an unexpected hit, reaching #10 in the Billboard Hot 100, leading him to sign with DGC Records.
He released his debut album, ‘Mellow Gold’, in 1994, which was followed by ‘Odelay’ in 1996, to critical and commercial acclaim, reaching #16 in the Billboard Hot 200.
He has since gone on to release many more albums, the latest being ‘Morning Phase’ in 2014, which reached the Top 5 in the UK and USA and led to him winning three Grammy Awards.
He has headlined his own tours and shows across the USA and UK, and in 2015 he supported The Strokes at British Summer Time, as well as headlining a show in Cork for the Live in the Marquee concert series.
In September 2017, he released the single Up All Night in advance of his latest upcoming album, 'Colours' which was released on October 13, 2017
Beck has next confirmed headline shows in Australia for February 2018, as well as a co-headline show with Yeah Yeah Yeahs in Dublin in May. In between, he headlines a short US tour too. He's recently announced his only headline show in the UK this year in Bournemouth in late May. Catch him live by checking out the tour dates and ticket information below on Stereoboard.

For Beck’s 13th album, the Californian singer-songwriter has eschewed the critically lauded musical introversion of his previous two records in favour of outright pop. The results are inconsistent, but when they deliver, they do so with an explosion of joyous swagger; all swinging grooves, smashy snares and production flare.
