John Maus is heading out on tour in 2019 and just announced a slew of new dates for this run. The 2019 dates start after over a month break for the holidays, with the first show taking place in Detroit on Jan. 31 and running through Feb. 28 with a show in Minneapolis.
Maus, whose music has been compared to goth-pop music from the '80s, will hit a total of 22 cities on this leg of his tour and will play three consecutive nights in Miami, Florida. This tour is in support of his fifth studio album Addendum, which went on sale in April 2018.
While Maus has only released five studio albums since 2006, he remains best known for his live shows where he is an energetic and emotional performer. However, from 2012 through 2016, Maus did not record any new music as he returned to college to work for his Ph.D. in political science.
However, he returned to music, built the instruments he used for his new albums and released Screen Memories in 2017 and Addendum in 2018. In 2017, he set out for his first tour with a live band that included his brother Joe in 2017.
After his brother suddenly passed away in 2018 due to an undiagnosed heart condition, Maus canceled the rest of the dates before setting out without the backing band at the end of 2018.
