Fans of Vampire Weekend will have 14 more chances to catch the chart-topping indie rockers in concert this year. The New York-based quartet recently extended its late summer tour plans and will now perform in 26 cities across the United States and Canada.
The tour launches in two months with an August 27-28 stand at Malkin Bowl in Vancouver, BC, and a new end-date has been set for the trek on October 13 at The Fillmore in Miami Beach, FL.
Other newer additions to the calendar include September 1 at McDonald Theatre in Eugene, OR; September 10 at Main Street Armory in Rochester, NY; September 25 at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA; and October 6 at Palladium Ballroom in Dallas, TX.
Public ticket sales begin over the June 25-27 weekend for about ten of the newly announced dates. Ticket face values run about $30 up to $40 in most markets, except at The Pearl in Las Vegas where tickets start at just $21, according to current listings on Ticketmaster.com.
Large groups of tickets are still available for the tour’s opening night, which was added to the itinerary because of high demand for the sold-out August 28 event. Vampire Weekend has also tallied near-sellouts in New York City, where only limited tickets remain for their September 15-17 run at Radio City Music Hall, according to a June 23 search on Ticketmaster.com.
Vampire Weekend already completed well-sold winter and spring tour legs at the start of the year, completing a handful of Los Angeles and New York dates in January before hitting the road more extensively from March through April.
The band, which released its eponymous debut amid critical and commercial praise in 2008, is touring behind its second studio album. The new effort “Contra” dropped in the United States on January 12 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
