The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
You may not have even realized The Gossip called it quits back in 2016 — well they did, and now they’re back. (Beth Ditto released a solo album last year.) So far they’ve only announced a UK/EU reunion tour for the summer that is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Music for Men. Surely they’ll bring it to North America. All dates are here.
YOB / VOIVOD / AMENRA
The ridiculously good triple metal bill of YOB, Voivod, and Amenra begins tonight (3/26) in Minneapolis, and goes on to hit tons of other cities including Brooklyn’s Warsaw on April 4 and much more. Both YOB and Amenra are also playing the stacked Psycho Las Vegas. YOB are also playing Pickathon. Voivod are also playing Maryland Deathfest. Ahead of the tour, YOB released an Amoeba Green Room Session video and Amenra shared the trailer for the upcoming documentary celebrating the band’s 20th anniversary.

RODRIGO Y GABRIELA
Since we last spoke, Rodrigo y Gabriela expanded their Mettavolution tour to include a new leg in July that focuses on the West Coast. That includes the Greek Theatre in LA on July 23 and many more dates.
DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS / DIMMER TWINS (PATTERSON HOOD & MIKE COOLEY)
Drive-By Truckers just announced some summer tour dates — including multi-night runs in Brooklyn and Toronto — but before that DBT’s Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley will be on the road as the Dimmer Twins.
NO WARNING / BLIND JUSTICE / DIVISION OF MIND / NEVER ENDING GAME
Back-in-action Canadian hardcore greats No Warning (who count Fucked Up’s Ben Cook as a member) are hitting the road with NJ’s Blind Justice, Richmond’s Division of Mind, and Detroit’s Never Ending Game (who share members with Freedom and True Love), which sounds like it’s gonna be a killer quadruple bill. All dates (including Brooklyn’s Kingsland on 5/9) here.
JEFFREY LEWIS & LOS BOLTS
NYC folk great Jeffrey Lewis will be on tour with his band Los Bolts, hitting such U.S. cities as Baltimore, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Des Moines, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, and Woodstock. Head here for all dates.
Rock icon John Fogerty is celebrating 50 years of music on tour this year, including stops at Woodstock 50 and NYC’s Radio City Music Hall.
Black Flag (with Greg Ginn)c continue to expand their very lengthy 2019 tour, which will be their first trek in five years. In addition to the previously announced shows (including two in NY), they’ve now added a Latin America run.
Railbird Festival goes down August 10-11 at Keeneland in Lexington, KY, and the Americana-leaning lineup features the back-in-action Raconteurs, Brandi Carlile, Tyler Childers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Mavis Staples, Gary Clark Jr, Lucinda Williams, I’m With Her, Jade Bird, Fruit Bats, and more. Full lineup and tickets here.
Jamaican singer Koffee recently released her debut EP Rapture, which combines reggae/dancehall with modern hip hop and electronic music, and it’s easy to see why it’s quickly taking off and crossing over outside of the reggae/dancehall world. She’s also going on tour, including a NYC show on June 12 at Gramercy Theatre. All dates here.
THE COMET IS COMING
UK psychedelic jazz trio The Comet Is Coming recently released their great sophomore album Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery and they’re supporting it on tour now, having recently played NYC’s Mercury Lounge (pics). They mentioned on stage at that show that they’d be back in NYC for a larger show, which has now been announced: October 1 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. They’ll also return to the US in June for Bonnaroo and other shows. All dates and tickets here.
BOBCAT GOLDTHWAIT & DANA GOULD
Comedians Bobcat Goldthwait and Dana Gould are teaming up for a tour they’re calling “The Show With Two Heads!” Dates kick off May 2 in Nashville and include stops in Chicago, Minneapolis, Brooklyn (Bell House on May 14 & 15), Somerville, MA, Philly, DC, and more. Dana’s got more shows on his own, too — head here for details.
On the heels of his acclaimed Netflix special 100% Fresh, Adam Sandler is taking his show on the road for the 100% Fresher tour. The NY/NJ shows go on BrooklynVegan presale this Wednesday.
Avail are finally back! They announced their first show in 12 years and they’ll be reuniting the Over the James lineup to celebrate that album’s 21st anniversary. No concrete word yet on other dates, but the band isn’t ruling out the idea.
