Just over two years after playing her “last shows indefinitely” in September 2019, indie-rocker Mitski announced an extensive tour of North America and Europe on Tuesday.
Mitski’s 2022 touring begins in North America, where she’ll kick things off at The Orange Peel in Asheville, N.C., on Feb. 17. For the next six weeks, Mitski will tour the U.S. and Canada, making stops at major theaters like New York’s Radio City Music Hall (March 24) and Washington, D.C.’s Anthem (March 26) before concluding the leg at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on March 31.
From April 21 to May 19, Mitski will head overseas, with dates booked for the U.K., Belgium, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Germany and the Czech Republic.
Mitski also released a new song, “Working For the Knife,” on Tuesday, marking her return following her critically acclaimed 2018 album, Be The Cowboy. The musician toured extensively behind that record, with box office highlights including a sold-out two-night November 2018 run at Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club that sold 2,400 tickets and grossed $60,000.
While Pollstar lacks data for Mitski’s New York plays in 2018 and 2019, they were among her strongest showings yet: Four sold-out nights at Brooklyn’s 1,800-capacity Brooklyn Steel from Nov. 30-Dec. 3, 2018, and two sold-out September 2019 dates – still her most recent concerts – at Rumsey Playfield in Manhattan’s Central Park, which typically holds about 5,000.
“After supporting [2016’s] Puberty 2 with relatively bare-bones performances, Mitski’s live presentation has leveled up on her latest tour to match her ambitious studio work,” Pollstar wrote in a review of one of Mitski’s 2018 Brooklyn Steel concerts.
Ticket’s for Mitski’s 2022 tour go on sale to the general public on Oct. 8 at noon local time. Find her upcoming dates below.
