After a six-year hiatus, Vampire Weekend has returned and asserted their dominance in the rock world with their latest release, Father of the Bride.
The 18-track record received widespread critical acclaim upon its release (you can check out our review here) and sees the band at its most introspective.
Along with the album, the band has announced a massive accompanying tour dubbed "The Father of the Bride Tour," which will kick off June 5th in Toronto, Ontario.
In anticipation of the tour, Vampire Weekend have played a few select New York City shows and have an upcoming festival appearance across the pond at Middlesbrough's "Big Weekend 2019."
The official tour kicks off June 5 in Toronto and runs through the summer and fall before wrapping up October 8 in Denver. Afterwards, the group heads overseas for a string of U.K. dates.
With four studio albums under their belt, Vampire Weekend has a lot to work with when crafting a setlist. Thanks to our Setlist.fm data, we were able to predict the songs that will (probably) make the cut!
