Interpol announce US dates for Turn on the Bright Lights 15th anniversary tour

New York and Los Angeles shows set for September, plus Mexico City in October


    Interpol announced a tour celebrating the 15th anniversary of their beloved debut, Turn on the Bright Lights, back in January. At the time, the only dates scheduled for the celebratory jaunt were in Europe. Finally, the seminal indie rockers have added US stops to the their itinerary — though there are only two.

    The band will perform Turn on the Bright Lights in full at New York’s Forest Hills Stadium on September 23rd and Los Angeles’ LA Historic State Park on September 30th. According to a press release, these two gigs will be the only performances of the 2002 album in either the US or Canada. Deerhunter and Battles will open both shows.

    Following the US dates, Interpol will head to Mexico City in October two more performances of the album.
