New Jersey-based rock band The Gaslight Anthem have announced their first headline tour in four years. Their first leg will begin in September, and conclude in October before their second leg begins in August and ends that same month.
The group previously performed in 2018 in celebration of The ’59 Sound, before going on hiatus to explore other projects, both in and out of music. However, in the last few days, the group has teased a new album and the recently-announced tour dates.
Hello everyone, Brian here. I hate to disappoint you, but I need to inform you that there will not be a 10th anniversary Handwritten Tour, or a documentary… However, I am very pleased to announce to you all that The Gaslight Anthem is returning to full time status as a band. pic.twitter.com/XtAZEDOWdw

We’re looking forward to the future and seeing you all again. We want to thank you for staying with us.”
The tour will begin September 13 in Portland, and conclude August 24 in Belfast. They will travel through Seattle, San Francisco, Hollywood, Salt Lake City, Kansas City, Chicago, Niagara Falls, Boston, Berlin, Bremen, London, Manchester, Birmingham, Dublin and other cities along the way.
