Grizzly Bear and Spoon announce co-headlining summer tour

Indie rock mainstays Grizzly Bear and Spoon have announced dates for a co-headlining summer tour with support from special guest Kaitlyn Arelia Smith.

The critically acclaimed acts, who are both supporting albums that were released last year, will hit the road in mid-June for an eight-city trek that will include stops in Brooklyn, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. The tour will kick off on June 18 at Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston and wrap on June 30 at Surly Brewery in Minneapolis.

Tickets for all dates go on sale to the general public Friday, March 9 at 10 a.m. local time. Additionally, Grizzly Bear and Spoon are teaming up with PLUS1 to donate $1 from every ticket sold to Everytown for Gun Safety in support of their effort to prevent gun violence. Fans can also text ACT to 644-33 to add their number to #EverytownForGunSafety’s mobile list to learn how to get involved with the campaign on a  local and national level.

Painted Ruins, Grizzly Bear’s fifth full-length, hit No. 27 on the Billboard 200 following its August 2017 release on RCA. Four singles (“Three Rings,” “Mourning Sound,” “Four Cypresses” and “Neighbors”) have been released from the album.

Hot Thoughts, Spoon’s ninth and most recent studio album, emerged in March 2017 via Matador Records. The album reached No. 17 on the Billboard 200 and spawned three singles: “Hot Thoughts,” “Can I Sit Next to You,” and “Do I Have to Talk You Into It.”
