Beck announced a new batch of tour dates on Monday, including a stop at Red Rocks in Colorado and a headlining set at the First City Festival in Monterey, CA. Beck had previously announced a series of summer shows in support of his newest album, the lovely, lo-fi Morning Phase.
According to Spin, nearly a dozen dates were added to his tour itinerary, which kicks off June 19 at the State Theatre in Cleveland and now runs well into August. The new shows also include a stop at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, The Fox Theatre in Detroit, and a date at Maryland's Merriweather Post Pavilion.
As mentioned, Beck's Red Rocks show on Aug. 15 will be his first at the legendary outdoor amphitheater in 11 years. He'll also be headlining the First City Festival on Aug. 23-24 along with The National. Other artists booked for the indie-leaning festival include The Naked and Famous, Phantogram, Best Coast, Tokyo Police Club, and more.
The newly announced shows come on the heels of Morning Phase, Beck's first studio album in six years. Although that album finds the versatile artist mostly in contemplative troubadour mode, his uptempo performance at Coachella last month drew from all over his career, including beloved hits like "Devil's Haircut," "Loser," and "Where's It's At." With his breakthrough album Mellow Gold celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the range and volume of Beck's catalog looks increasingly impressive, and his live shows bounce seamlessly from style-to-style, in large part due to the dialed-in chemistry with his longtime band of Smokey Hormel, Justin Meldal-Johnsen Roger Joseph Manning Jr., and Joey Waronker.
In addition to the newly announced headlining concerts, Beck will be playing a number of festival dates this summer as well, including the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago on July 18, the Forecastle Festival in Louisville, KY on July 20, and both weekends of the Austin City Limits Festival in October.
