The National announces Red Rocks, Dillon concerts

The new tour even includes some concerts originally scheduled for 2020 that were canceled due to the pandemic.

DENVER — The National has announced its first North American tour since the fall of 2019.

The rock band kicks off its tour in July with stops planned in Denver and Dillon. 

The National will be joined by Bartees Strange at Dillon Amphitheater on Wednesday, Aug. 10 and Lucy Dacus at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Monday, Sept. 12.

"We are excited to finally share our full tour itinerary for summer 2022," said The National. "The last couple years have given us ample time for reflection and rejuvenation. Summer 2022 is a time for reunion. We look forward to gathering with friends, old and new. United in music and light, suspended in time. We hope you can join us."

Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, April 1 at 10 a.m. at AXS.com. The National has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from each ticket will benefit the PLUS1 Ukraine Relief Fund, supporting the people of Ukraine.

The Red Rocks 2022 concert schedule (announced so far) is steadily growing and even features some concerts postponed from 2020. We will keep this concert schedule updated as the concert season approaches.
