Swedish rockers The Hives will be on the road this summer, trekking across three continents in support of their latest LP, The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons, released in 2023. The album marks their first record in over 11 years, following 2012’s Lex Hives.

After wrapping-up the tour’s European leg – which includes stops in Dublin, London, Madrid, Copenhagen, Stockholm, and more from April through early July – the band will head to the other side of the Atlantic on July 19 at Citi Field in New York, supporting Foo Fighters. The North American run will stop in cities like Washington, D.C., Toronto, Detroit, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Atlanta and more, with a huge final destination at Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City on October 8.

The tour schedule features the band performing as a supporting act for the Foo Fighters in Boston, Hershey, San Diego, Los Angeles, and New York. Additionally, they are set to make festival appearances at New Jersey’s Sea.Hear.Now and Oceans Calling in Maryland, along with more performances in Europe.

Formed in 1993, The Hives celebrated their 30th anniversary with the release of The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons. They had several headlining shows in the U.S. following the release and supported the Arctic Monkeys in the U.K. last year.

Consisting of Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist (Per Almqvist) in lead vocals; Nicholaus Arson (Niklas Almqvist) in lead guitar, backing vocals; Vigilante Carlstroem (Mikael Karlsson) in rhythm guitar, backing vocals; Chris Dangerous (Christian Grahn) in drums, percussion; and The Johan and Only (Johan Gustafsson) in bass guitar, the band members have remained unchanged since 1993 aside from Dr. Matt Destruction (bass), who retired for health reasons in 2013 and was replaced by The Johan and Only.

The Hives are best-known for their energetic live shows where they dress in matching black-and-white tuxedos. Their catalog consists of six albums, with a total of 11 years between their fifth and sixth studio records.

“Rock ‘n’ roll is a weird thing where you can be the best at it when you’ve never done it before,” they commented in a podcast talk with Kyle Meredith. “There are amateurs that make one song at 15 that’s almost better than anything we’ve done after 30 years of trying.”

However, the band noted their desire to keep creating music that felt youthful.

Tickets head on sale Friday, April 5, at 10 a.m. local time. The Hives fans or those willing to experience ‘the music that feels youthful’ can check out tickets via the band’s official website.
