The National are working on a new album, and they'd announced some shows this summer, including Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Festival, Sound on Sound, and Day In Day Out Fest. Now they've announced a summer North American tour, beginning in July and running through September. "The last couple years have given us ample time for reflection and rejuvenation," they write. "Summer 2022 is a time for reunion. We look forward to gathering with friends, old and new. United in music and light, suspended in time. We hope you can join us."
Lucy Dacus, Japanese Breakfast, and Bartees Strange (who released an album of The National covers in 2020) each open select dates, and while there's no NYC show at the moment, the tour stops in Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Boston, Missoula, Morrison, and more. See all dates below.
Tickets to all shows go on sale Friday, April 1 at 10 AM local time.
