After two decades together, The Decemberists are celebrating their anniversary with a summer tour.
The 20 Years Before The Mast tour will kick off at the end of July and continue through August with stops in Denver (Tickets) and New York (Tickets), with support from Fruit Bats. Ticket pre-sales are underway now, while the general on-sale begins Friday, Feb. 14.
AXS Premium seating is also available for select dates, plus fans can purchase The Whole Shebang Super Concert Action Packages, which include premium seating, a two-song set and Q&A with the band, and exclusive merchandise. Through a partnership with PLUS1, $1 from every ticket sold will benefit organizations "working to transform the accessibility and infrastructure around voting policy and procedure."
"On such occasions, it seems fitting to throw some kind of party," singer Colin Meloy said in a statement. "And so we’re heading out on the road, we Decemberists, to celebrate the work we’ve made over the last two decades — playing the hits, naturally, but digging into the deep cuts as well. It’ll be a kind of retrospective journey. Come along with us!"
Meloy also promised that fans can expect to hear songs from throughout The Decemberists' discography. Their most recent release was 2018's Traveling On EP.
