Renowned singer-songwriter Daniel Johnston will embark on a final tour this fall, playing select cities across North America. Johnston will be backed by his own band and a rotating cast of musicians, including Jeff Tweedy & Friends, Built to Spill, Modern Baseball, the Districts and others. Five dates have been confirmed so far, with more to be announced.

The setlist will be ever-evolving, seeing as Johnston has given the musicians accompanying him that night the liberty to choose which songs they’d like to play. He has released 121 songs over the course of his career.
