Dead Can Dance announce 22-date European tour — with American, Asian legs to come

Newly reunited 4AD collective Dead Can Dance tonight announced the first phase of its much-anticipated 2012 reactivation, a six-week, 22-date tour of Europe that will take the group — namely co-founders and mainstays Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard — from Istanbul to Ireland in September and October.

The trek opens Sept. 19 in Istanbul and warps up Oct. 28 in Dublin, hitting five cities in Germany as well as Russia, England and Greece, among other locales, in between. Tickets for the German and Hungarian dates on set to go sale via at 9 a.m. GMT today. Ticket information for the rest of the shows should be posted there, too.

According to an e-mail sent to fans tonight, dates for North American, South American and Asian legs of the tour “will be announced shortly.”

The reunion will be the second time the duo has gotten back together since the late 1990s, and the planned new record will be the band’s first since 1996’s Spiritchaser. When announcing the reunion last year, Perry wrote, “We hope to complete the album by the summer of 2012 and then embark on an extensive two-month world tour in late 2012.”
