The tour will include three Canadian shows (Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver) and the band will be playing several markets they haven’t visited in years (Richmond, Birmingham, Kansas City, Houston).
The Afghan Whigs will also visit 17 countries overseas this summer in support of the new album including performances at Primavera Sound, Northside Festival and Way Out West. Ed Harcourt will be supporting on all European headline shows.
