Spoon and Grizzly Bear will unite this summer for a run of co-headlining U.S. tour dates. The acclaimed indie-rock acts will link up for seven joint dates in June, opening in Boston on the 18th and concluding in Minneapolis on the 30th.
The bands, using concert donation platform PLUS1, will donate one dollar from each ticket purchase to Everytown for Gun Safety’s Support Fund, which aims to prevent gun violence and build safer communities.
Spoon recently wrapped a jaunt behind their 2017 LP, Hot Thoughts, including a handful of dates with the Shins. The quartet also has a wider run of stand-alone shows booked for the spring and summer, launching with a sold-out March 6th concert in Philadelphia. Grizzly Bear wrapped a stretch of North American and European dates in December.
Both bands earned best-of accolades for their most recent LPs: Spoon cracked Rolling Stone‘s 50 Best Songs of 2017 list with Hot Thoughts’ title-track, and Grizzly Bear’s Painted Ruins earned a spot on our 50 Best Albums list.
