Indie kings Vampire Weekend will hit the road this fall on a North American tour, and the quartet have recruited a few notable friends to tag along: Beach House and Dum Dum Girls!
The 13-date trek kicks off August 28 in Vancouver, BC, and will see the three bands hit cities like Chicago, Toronto, Boston, and New York, where the hometown prepsters will headline a three-night stint at Radio City Music Hall. The tour will wrap with a show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on September 26. See the complete itinerary below.
All three bands have had a big year so far. Vampire Weekend's new album, Contra, hit No. 1 on the Billboard chart; Beach House broke out with their SPIN approved release Teen Dream; and Dum Dum Girls wowed at this year's SXSW.
