Today The Wedding Present unveiled North American dates for its worldwide tour marking the 21st anniversary of 1989’s Bizarro, the band’s second album and major-label debut. The previously announced Bizarro 21st Anniversary Tour — featuring David Gedge and Co. playing that album in its entirety, much like the band’s 2007 George Best 20th Anniversary Tour — hits North America for 16 concerts between April 1 to 24, before resuming in Europe for as-yet-unannounced dates running from Oct. 11 to Dec. 7.
