Due to NBA/NHL playoff schedules to be determined the band has yet to lock down its Los Angeles date, saying only that it will play the Staples Center on an evening to be announced.
Here’s the rest of the schedule:
May 5 – Oakland, Calif., Oracle Arena May 8 – San Jose, Calif., HP Pavilion At San Jose May 11 – Las Vegas, Nev., MGM Grand Garden Arena May 15 – Anaheim, Calif., Honda Center May 25 – Toronto, Ontario, Air Canada Centre May 28 – Chicago, Ill., United Center June 12 – Boston, Mass., TD Garden June 18 – Philadelphia, Pa., Wells Fargo Center June 29 – Pilton, England, Worthy Farm (Glastonbury Festival) July 6 – London, England, Hyde Park (Barclaycard British Summer Time).
Former Rolling Stones member Mick Taylor will appear as special guest throughout the tour.
It was earlier reported that they would do 18 US dates and with 9 cities announced thus far and with the scheduling of those shows it's almost certain they will add second gigs at each of the venues to fill out their obligation. So now that the cities have been announced, is anyone going? Chicago's a bit too far I'm afraid though honestly even if it were closer I'd have a difficult time warming up to $150 nosebleeds. Perhaps if they'd bring Beck on as an opener as they did in 2005 it would be a different story.
Excited for Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Elton John, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Vampire Weekend, James Blake, The Flaming Lips, Jack White, Janelle Monae, Damon Albarn, Arctic Monkeys, Phoenix, Neutral Milk Hotel, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Ice Cube, Phosphorescent, and Disclosure.
