MGMT have expanded their upcoming North American tour, adding six more shows in major cities across the U.S. that include Chicago, Richmond, Brooklyn, Seattle and Asheville, N.C. The news of additional concerts dates on Monday arrives just a few weeks following the upcoming tour’s initial announcement back on Jan. 16, to go along with the revealing of their soon-to-be-released studio album under the title, Little Dark Age.
Three of the six newly announced shows include a second concert added at previously revealed venues including Chicago’s Riviera Theatre on March 4, New York’s Brooklyn Steel on March 26 and Seattle’s Showbox SoDo on May 13. The band has also added a few new venues onto their already busy tour itinerary including Asheville’s Thomas Wolfe Theatre on March 12 and Richmond’s The National on March 21.
The North American tour’s March 2 start date coincides perfectly with the scheduled release of Little Dark Age via Columbia Records on Feb. 9. The famous indie rock band have already shared the album’s first three singles, including the title track, “When You Die” and more recently a very psychedelic and enjoyably oozing rock song titled “Hand It Over.” The duo are also scheduled to play a handful of select shows across Europe and the U.K. starting Tuesday in Berlin, Germany, and continuing throughout February before returning Stateside in early March.
Tickets for the added shows will be going on sale starting this Friday, Feb. 2, and 10 a.m. local time, and can be purchased by clicking here.
