Cincinnati rock band The National will be hitting the road this summer, making stops across North America for a handful of headlining shows, in between playing numerous music festivals across the globe.

The band announced headlining shows in California at the Hollywood Palladium and Berkley’s Greek Theatre, along with shows in Philadelphia and Maryland this November. Early next month, they’re set to play in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida, and their final headlining show is scheduled at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater in October. While playing a show at Toronto’s Fort York, the band will be joined by Father John Misty, Jenny Lewis, and Julien Baker, and Cat Power will also make an appearance at one of the shows in Berkeley. Phoebe Bridgers, The War On Drugs, and Big Thief are among the artists supporting The National at headlining shows.

A majority of their performances throughout the tour will be at music festivals. Next week, the band will perform at Cincinnati’s Homecoming Festival, and after their show in Florida, they will make their way to Georgia’s Shaky Knees Music Festival before heading back up to perform at Boston Calling. Other notable festivals include Sasquatch! in Washington, Barcelona’s Primavera Sound, Chicago’s Lollapalooza, and Osheaga in Montreal.

Formed in 1999, the band has eight albums under their belt, including the 2017 record, Sleep Well Beast, which features tracks “Nobody Else Will Be There,” “The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness” and “Day I Die.” They are best-known for the single “I Need My Girl” off the same-titled 2013 record.
