The Decemberists at Radio City Music Hall (more by Tim Griffin)
Colin Meloy

One week after The Decemberists welcome their new LP The King is Dead into this world (due 1/18/11) via Capitol Records, the band will hit the road for a string of US dates followed by European dates that will take them into middle March. The tour includes an NYC stop at Beacon Theater on January 25th. Tickets go on AmEx presale Wednesday November 17th at 10am, and then general sale Friday November 19th at 11am. All seats are $39.50.

Wye Oak will open the first part of their US tour, including in NYC. The duo released their EP My Neighbor, My Creator earlier this year via Merge Records. Mountain Man, who just got done touring with Jonsi (they opened the NYC show at Hammerstein Ballroom) will take over as openers for the Decemberists in Milwaukee.

Mountain Man won't be on board for the NYC date of the Decemberists tour, but they will play 92Y Tribeca on 12/11 with John Shade, their only current US headlining date (the band will head to Australia in the new year). Tickets are on sale.

All tour dates and a video is below...

That is either the driest and most hilarious rip on music blog comments, or you're retarded.

I agree with 3:10 - It was great seeing this band at Maxwell's - I guess these other schmucks just heard about the band today...

2nd row center! woohoo! next album is a new direction for the band. Only person who cares about you seeing them at maxwells is you.

They've been playing bigger venue for a long time now. The Beacon is no surprise, it might actually suit them well. Indie has gone mainstream, haven't you heard?

i guess y'all must be talking about Wye Oak, huh?

The Decemberists have been playing big venues for years now. Last 2 NYC shows were Radio City and Terminal 5...

Also the new album is kind of a letdown. Decent songs, but almost a step back for them. Just sort of kinda cool folky songs.

When did they play the JC Loews? I wish more bands would play there...

Posted by Anonymous | November 19, 2010 11:06 AM

sold out! yet theres already 95 tickets on sale at stubhub. the cheapest being $100 a ticket. fucking balls.

Posted by peat | November 19, 2010 11:27 AM

Not sold out, been pulling some Upper Balcony tickets (which, as ticketmaster helpfully informs, is "Above Lower Balcony"). But yeah, not doing that.

That Terminal 5 show they just did didn't sell out all that quickly, I don't think. What gives? T5 and Beacon are around same capacity.
