While Mike Scott treated us to solo shows late last year and a few Waterboys shows on the East Coast in the Spring ( TTown Hall in NYCh), The Waterboyshave just announced the band's biggest-ever North American tour, happening this fall. The tour is officially supporting the Scottish group's 10th LP, An Appointment with Mr. Yeats (stream it via Spotify), and will included hits from throughout their career, including the much-celebrated '80s albums This is the Sea and Fisherman's Blues. The tour hits NYC on October 25 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/12) at noon.

Other NY-area shows include the Bergen PAC in Englewood, NJ on September 25 (tickets on sale 7/12), Weshampton Beach PAC, in Long Island on September 27 (tickets on sale now) and the Mayo PAC in Morristown, NJ on September 28 (tickets on sale now).

Before that, though, The Waterboys will be playing a free Celebrate Brooklyn! show on Friday, July 19 with Alasdair Roberts.
