Last fall, Dean Wareham announced plans to reunite his post-Galaxie 500 band Luna for the first time in a decade for shows this coming spring in Spain. Today, though, he followed that up with big news for U.S. fans: The band’s reunion will open with an April 13 show in Los Angeles, with the promise of more American dates this fall.

Luna will play its first concert in 10 years at The Echo in L.A. before heading overseas for 15 dates in Spain and Portugal beginning April 17. Tickets for the L.A. show go on sale noon PST Thursday.

On Twitter, Wareham added that additional U.S. concerts will follow later this year:



Wareham founded Luna in 1991 following the demise of famed dream-pop trio Galazie 500, and the band would release seven albums over its 13-year run. After Luna’s split, Wareham continued to make music with bassist Britta Phillips, and the two would later marry.
