The National & Big Thief touring together

The National have expanded their tour to include a handful of US shows with Big Thief, surrounding The National’s own Homecoming festival and the Aaron Dessner-curated Boston Calling, which both bands play. If it wasn’t clear from all the curation that The National like Big Thief, they added that Big Thief are “one of our favorite artists.”

The run with Big Thief hits Charlottesville, Raleigh, Nashville, Asheville, and St. Augustine, and tickets for all dates go on presale Wednesday (1/17) at 10 AM local time (password = REALITYBASED). All dates are listed below.

The National will also be in NYC for the just-announced Citi Sound Vault series, which has them playing the very intimate Irving Plaza on January 25. Tickets go on sale Friday (1/19) to Citi cardholders who receive an access code (you can enter until Wednesday at 10 AM).

Last year, The National released Sleep Well Beast and Big Thief released Capacity, both of which made our top albums of 2017 list. Watch videos from both albums below.
