“I’m always happy to announce more tour dates, but rarely so much as today; not only are we coming back to the USA and hitting some major cities, not only are we touring Canada with our new friends the Arkells, not only do we have an amazing line-up of bands opening for me, we’re also playing my first Arena headline show outside the UK, in Boston,” said Turner. It’s like the American Wembley, for me. See you there.”
