The Decemberists Announce West Coast Tour Dates – Co-Headlining Red Rocks with Spoon

The Decemberists’  new album What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World, has been released this week. With that the band has announced a run of new tour dates. Starting in late April, the band will hit Mesa, AZ before heading west for shows in San Diego, Berkeley, and Los Angeles with Lucius as support for all four nights. On May 27, The Decemberists team up with Spoon for a co-headlining show at Red Rocks with Courtney Barnett opening up the evening. Then looking ahead to the summer, The Decemberists will play a near-Portland date at Edgefield in Troutdale, OR on July 10th.

On Tuesday it was declared “Decemberists Day” in Portland, OR. According to Mayor Charlie Hales’ official proclamation (which you can read below), The Decemberists “embody the Portland values of passion, engagement, and communitarianism with the Portland aesthetic of homegrown, forthright, slightly hippie, and often bespectacled glory.”  The ceremony included a performance from the band, as well as the unveiling of a collaborative art piece inspired by The Decemberists that was created by 50 local Portland artists and small businesses.

The band have a limited number of pre-sale tickets available at Decemberists.com starting, January 21, at 10am local time.
