The The expands reunion tour with 3 ‘very low-key’ U.K. warm-up concerts in May

Matt Johnson will now open The The’s highly anticipated return with a trio of “very low-key warm-up shows” in the U.K. this May prior to a headlining performance at a Denmark festival and what’s being called the “London Trilogy” of sold-out concerts this summer.

The just-announced shows will take place May 25 and 26 in Nottingham and May 27 in Leeds; tickets already are sold out for all three shows.

The concerts will be The The’s first in 16 years, and follow the release last year of both a brand-new single, “We Can’t Stop What’s Coming,” featuring Johnny Marr and a three-disc box set chronicling Johnson’s 12-hour radio broadcast a few years back. Johnson had said in 2015 that he was working on a “proper” new The The record, though it’s not clear if that’s still in the works.
