The Decemberists Setting Sail On 20th Anniversary Summer Tour

The Decemberists have announced a special Summer 2020 North American tour to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the band which was first formed in 2000 in Portland, Oregon. Ticket and VIP package pre-sales are underway with a public on-sale beginning Friday, February 14 at 10:00am local time. The band has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from each ticket will be donated to non-profits working to transform the accessibility and infrastructure around voting policy and procedure.

“Twenty years ago, in a basement practice space in Portland, Oregon, a bunch of musicians threw together under the name The December Brides, a name that lasted only a few hours before it was marginally improved to The Decemberists,” said the band’s frontman Colin Meloy. “In the intervening years, that band has made nine records, six EPs, innumerable singles, a board game, and enough t-shirts, hoodies, and onesies to clothe a continent. On such occasions, it seems fitting to throw some kind of party. And so we’re heading out on the road, we Decemberists, to celebrate the work we’ve made over the last two decades — playing the hits, naturally, but digging into the deep cuts as well. It’ll be a kind of retrospective journey. Come along with us!”
