The National Announces 2016 Tour

Music News

Atmospheric rockers The Nationals are hitting the road for a series of widely-spaced shows, geographically and time-wise. They’ll start in New Zealand next month, play a number of festivals in Europe, and close out July with two shows in California and one at Red Rocks (with The Lone Bellow and Real Estate, respectively).

In a Facebook Q&A session last fall, frontman Matt Berninger said The National wouldn’t be releasing their upcoming album in 2016, which perhaps comes as little surprise, given his work on side project EL VY. Regardless, The National is back, and you can find a full list of tour dates below.
