Matt Johnson has announced today that following the 16 date tour in Europe and the UK, the 2018 reunion dates for The The will also include a series of 8 North American concerts this September that are set to be the band’s first appearance across the Atlantic in 18 years.
The North American dates begin on opening September 14th in Boston, with two concerts in New York City (Brooklyn and Manhattan), followed by dates in Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Tickets for all of the North American dates go on sale Friday, April 6, at 12 noon local time.
Still no news of the promised new The The album, which would be the first “proper” release since 2000’s Naked Self. Director Tim Pope is—however—scheduled to be doing some “music video” work with the band this year.
Meanwhile, last year, Johnson had teamed up with Johnny Marr on the We Can’t Stop What’s Coming single for Record Store Day, along with the Radio Cineola 3-disc box set.
