Tame Impala Expand North American Headline Tour

When I say Tame Impala season is really and truly approaching, I mean they seem like they’re about to release the album Kevin Parker was going on about last year — their first since 2015’s Currents — what with an SNL gig and the release of two new singles and all. But Tame Impala season could also just be synonymous with summer festival season, as the Aussie psych heroes have remained a mainstay of that scene throughout the entire interim between projects. We’ve now reached the point, though, where even Tame Impala headline shows might give you that overwhelming festival vibe. Along with rising to headliner status at top-tier events like Coachella, they’ve leveled up to arenas for their own gigs.

We already knew the band would be playing a significant number of fests around the world this year with some headline dates peppered in between. Today the band fleshed out that headline schedule a bit, adding shows in Toronto, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC. They’ve also added two more festivals to their itinerary, one in Detroit at Mo Pop and one over on the other side of the world at Oya Fest in Oslo.

Check out the newly updated tour schedule below, and then speculate on when Tame Impala LP4 might materialize. If I had to guess, I’d put it in early May to coincide with the beginning of this run.
