Kim Gordon, pictured performing at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival in 2021, will hit the road in March.

Indie-rock luminary Kim Gordon announced her first-ever solo headlining tour Wednesday, resurrecting an international run that was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic.

The Sonic Youth co-founder will play U.S. clubs (and two festivals) in March, beginning at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club on March 13 and concluding at Treefort Festival in Boise, Idaho, on March 27. Her other stops include Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club (March 15) and New York’s Webster Hall (March 18).

Afterward, she’ll head overseas for UK and European plays in late May and early June, including gigs at Primavera events in Barcelona (June 2) and Porto, Portugal (June 9).

“I can’t believe the tour is finally happening!” Gordon said. “Looking forward to playing with my band who are amazing and bringing the music to you. You are the ones gonna make it sizzle.”

Gordon performed at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival in September and, the night before her appearance, played at the Windy City’s Thalia Hall, grossing $16,122.

Gordon is represented by Ground Control Touring’s Eric Dimenstein.

Gordon released her solo debut, No Home Record, in October 2019, part of a recent creative burst that also included a 2018 album with Bill Nace (under the name Body/Head) and a 2021 record with Nace and Aaron Dilloway (billed as Body/Dilloway/Head). Nace will open the first five shows of Gordon’s U.S. tour, and Mary Lattimore will open the next two.

While Sonic Youth broke up a decade ago, the group remained front of mind during the pandemic, releasing recordings of more than two dozen live shows from throughout its three-decade history. Earlier this month, the band announced the March release of In/Out/In, a collection compiling “especially zoned/exploratory” rarities from the post-2000 era.
