Cage the Elephant, Beck announce massive ‘Night Running’ summer tour

It looks like Cage the Elephant and Beck’s collaboration on one of the former’s new songs was just the beginning of a beautiful friendship. On Monday (Feb. 11), the Kentucky-founded band and the California-based musician announced plans to embark on a massive tour throughout the summer months.

Dubbed the “Night Running” North American tour (after their upcoming collaboration), the trek will find the tour mates performing across the continent throughout the months of July and August. The 30-date jaunt includes stops in major cities such as Las Vegas, Phoenix, Denver, Austin, Chicago, Toronto, Indianapolis, Columbia, New York, Raleigh, Charlotte, and more.

The “Night Running” North American tour begins on July 11 at the Sunlight Supply Amphitheater in Ridgefield, Washington and concludes about a month and a half later on Aug. 30 at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Spoon will join Cage the Elephant and Beck on the forthcoming outing as their main supporting act while Starcrawler, Wild Belle, and Sunflower Bean will appear on select dates.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, Feb. 15, at 10 a.m. local time. According to a statement, one dollar from every ticket sold will be donated to a local food security initiative in the respective city they’re playing in.

The upcoming tour is mainly in support of Cage the Elephant’s upcoming fifth studio album, Social Cues. Earlier this month, the band announced the record’s release as well as debuted its lead single, “Ready to Let Go.” Social Cues is due out April 19 through RCA. Pre-orders for the forthcoming release are currently available on Cage the Elephant’s website.

As for Beck, the musician’s last studio album was 2017’s Colors. During Sunday’s Grammy Awards, the ten-track album won awards in the Best Alternative Music Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical categories.

While Beck hasn’t released a new album since 2017, he has worked on several one-off tracks including “Tarantula” —a song inspired by the Oscar-nominated film “ROMA”— and “Super Cool” featuring the Lonely Island and Robyn.
