The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
THE GET UP KIDS / CLOUD NOTHINGS
Following a European run in May, The Get Up Kids kick off an East Coast tour with Great Grandpa in July (including three NYC-area shows) in support of their new LP Problems, which is out this week. The band recently added even more dates to their schedule, extending their tour to September. They’ll be joined by Cloud Nothings, as well as Kansas City band The Whiffs, for new dates on the West Coast, which should make for a great triple dose of catchy punk. Their tour begins in Phoenix in late August, before hitting other cities like Philly, Worcester, LA, Portland, Denver, Salt Lake City, Detroit, and more. Tickets to these dates go on sale Friday (3/10). All dates here.
In support of her upcoming album Madame X, Madge will be playing intimate venues in major cities, including seven nights at BAM in September.
LAURA STEVENSON opening for CRAIG FINN
Laura Stevenson returned this year with her newest LP The Big Freeze, which might be her prettiest, folkiest album to date. She’ll be touring behind it this year (including a sold-out Rough Trade show), but she has also just been added as an opener for Craig Finn’s upcoming Northeastern US shows in June behind his own 2019 album, I Need A New War, which includes two NYC stops at Joe’s Pub, and other shows in Washington D.C., Ardmore, and Milwaukee. Head here for all Laura Stevenson dates.
BLINK-182 / LIL WAYNE
Well here’s an interesting double bill: blink-182 and Lil Wayne are teaming up for a co-headining tour this summer. It might seem weird, but it really shouldn’t. Both had massive hits around the same time, both have proved to have longevity, Lil Wayne experimented with rock music, and Travis Barker has long worked with rappers (including Lil Wayne himself on Travis’ Give the Drummer Some album).
Post-hardcore/screamo unit State Faults are finally following their great 2013 sophomore album Resonate/Desparate with a new album, Clairvoyant, on June 21 and have announced West Coast dates as well.
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS
Stone Temple Pilots, which currently features Jeff Gutt on lead vocals, announced a North American tour in the fall, which are co-headlining dates with blues rockers Rival Sons. The tour begins in Asbury Park in September, with other dates in Brooklyn, Philly, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and many others. Tickets to all shows are on sale now.
Nineties nostalgia continues with this announcement from Incubus, who will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their 1999 album Make Yourself — which saw them departing from their funk metal roots and getting much more popular thanks to singles like “Pardon Me,” “Drive,” and “Stellar” — on tour this fall. Openers vary by date and include Dub Trio, Le Butcherettes, and Wild Belle, the latter of whom open the show at NYC’s iconic Radio City Music Hall on 10/3. The bands also stop in Philly, Seattle, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Austin, Charlotte, and tons more. Tickets to all dates go on sale Friday (5/10).
Imogen Heap recently kicked off her first world tour in eight years, which reunites her with her Frou Frou partner Guys Sigsworth for the first time since 2003. Her next stop is NYC for a two night run at Town Hall – the May 8 show is sold out, but limited tickets are still available for May 7. After NYC, Imogen heads to Chicago, Toronto, Boston, Austin, San Francisco, Seattle, and Los Angeles. See all of her upcoming dates here.
NICK CAVE (“CONVERSATIONS WITH”)
Nick is doing more of his “Conversations” shows where he’ll take questions from the audience and play a few solo piano songs as well.
Having wrapped up a tour with Laura Jane Grace, Philly punks Control Top added a few more dates behind their extremely solid debut LP. This includes an NYC-area show at Mercury Lounge on August 8 (tickets on sale Friday 5/10), in addition to other dates, including a pair of hometown Philly shows opening for The Hives/Refused tour in May, and Ted Leo and the Pharmacists in July. View all dates here.
“‘The Long Goodbye’ implies that we will say goodbye at some point. But the word ‘long’ implies we don’t know how long it is,” says Deep Purple’s Roger Glover of the band’s Long Goodbye tour, which just got longer.
North Carolina-based country/folk band Loamlands are gearing up to release their latest album Lez Dance in June, which, they say “intimately grapples with identity, pronouns and experiencing a queer existence in both modern-day and historical southern culture.” They have several East Coast tour dates coming up to promote the album, including two NYC stops: Coney Island Baby on 5/9 and Trans-Pecos on 5/10. Loamlands will also play shows in Washington D.C., Philly, Providence, and Easthampton. Check here for all dates.
BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB
With a new album in the works, UK band Bombay Bicycle Club just announced their first North American tour in some time, including a second NYC date.
Guitarist and hitmaker Lenny Kravitz announced North American shows behind his recent LP Raise Vibration, with a big show at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall on 8/27, and other shows in Montreal, Philly, LA, Phoenix, Toronto, St. Louis, Nashville, and more. Tickets to these shows go on sale Friday (5/10) at noon local time. All dates can be found here.
SWEARIN’ / MIKE KROL
Following a hiatus, Swearin’ released their great third LP Fall Into The Sun last year, and they’ll soon be touring behind the album this summer, as part of a co-headlining tour with Mike Krol — whose live band lately has included Swearin’s Alison Crutchfield on bass. There’s a Jersey City, NJ stop at White Eagle Hall on 8/3, and other shows in Atlanta, Nashville, Philly, Montreal, Toronto, and more. All dates are listed here. Swearin’ also play Industry City before that with Screaming Females before the tour with Krol starts.
Comedian Joe Mande is mostly known as a writer for The Good Place and Parks and Recreation, but he’s also a great standup. He’ll bring his “King of Content” tour on the road in September, where he’ll “travel all over America in an heroic attempt to heal a broken nation with his patented mix of humor and content.” This includes Brooklyn’s The Bell House on 9/10, and other shows in Philly, Austin, LA, Seattle, Boston, and others. Head here for all dates.
THE MINUS 5
Scott McCaughey is on tour now with Filthy Friends (that also features Peter Buck, Corin Tucker and Kurt Bloch), but he’s also just announced a tour for one of his other groups, The Minus 5 whose new album, Stroke Manor, is out in June.
Songwiter/composer Lydia Ainsworth’s new LP Phantom Forest is out this week, and is currently on tour with TR/ST, having just played Brooklyn’s Elsewhere last week. She’s just announced headlining dates this summer, including Brooklyn’s Elsewhere Zone One on 7/12, and stops in Washington D.C., Toronto, and Los Angeles. Tickets to these new dates go on sale Friday (5/10). Find all dates here and listen to
