Whitney’s last North American tour wrapped up not long before the pandemic began, and they aren’t wasting any time to (safely) get back on the road. The Chicago indie duo have announced a run of tour dates in the US for fall 2021, which will see them play a number of smaller venues and visit some often-overlooked cities that took the hardest hits in 2020.
Though Whitney haven’t shared any original new music since their 2019 sophomore record, Forever Turned Around, this tour promises to be a special experience: “This fall we will be touring some of our favorite rooms in the US,” the band wrote on social media. “These intimate shows will mark the beginning of a new chapter in our project. New songs and new sounds will be presented with a focus on being in the moment. We’ll be bringing a new stripped-back lineup with us… We’ll be organizing ways to do this the safest way possible. Details to follow.”
Louisiana folk artist Renée Reed will support Whitney on all the announced dates, which you can check out below. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 13th, and will be available through Ticketmaster or on the secondary market here. You can also sign up for ticket presale via the band’s website.
Whitney kept themselves busy last year by releasing a string of covers, which they then assembled into a full album called Candid. The duo also made a recent guest appearance on Stock Child Wonder, the latest album by their fellow Chicago artist Knox Fortune.
