The The announces first North American concerts in 18 years as reunion expands

After slowly rolling out The The reunion dates in the U.K. and Europe, bandleader Matt Johnson today announced an 8-date North American run that marks the band’s first shows on the continent in 18 years, since the tour in support of 2000’s Nakedself.

The North American dates follow the European summer trek, opening Sept. 14 in Boston, with concerts in New York City, 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.

This year’s 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.

  1. Make this trip count Matt, get your double articled ass up to Portland and Seattle.

    • Pablo Cirulnick

      I’m up in Portland also but will fly down for the SF show for sure.

      • I’m in Seattle and I just went and stared and my husband…”LA IN SEPTEMBER”…he’s an even bigger Matt Johnson fan than me and he was a little scared of me, I think…

  2. I’d love a Montreal visit, but I’m wiling to drive to Boston for this one! I’m going to be checking for tickets regularly.

  3. I can pretty much guarantee that you’d sell out in Seattle…

  4. Omaha, right in the middle of the U.S. Please.

  5. Kevin Hooper
