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.
