Beck has announced the first seven dates for his summer U.S. tour, beginning May 28 in Vienna, Va. Dashboard Confessional and the Black Keys will support on all dates. According to Dashboard's publicist, the full itinerary is expected to total about 18 dates and should be finalized by week's end. The trio of acts are among the first confirmed for the long-rumored Field Day Festival on June 6-7 in Calverton, Long Island, N.Y.; Radiohead and the Beastie Boys are also tipped to appear.
Beck will precede his second U.S. tour behind his 2002 Geffen album, "Sea Change," with a two-week solo jaunt through Europe, beginning April 18 in Hamburg on April 18 and wrapping May 2 in Dublin. Last fall, Beck was accompanied by the Flaming Lips, who served as both his support act and backing band. The Lips will not be on hand this time out.
As previously reported, Dashboard Confessional will play a series of New York and Los Angeles-area venues in mid-May in advance of its forthcoming studio album "A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar," due in July via Vagrant.
Akron, Ohio-based rock duo the Black Keys wrap a U.S. headlining tour tonight (April 9) in San Diego. The group's Fat Possum debut, and second album overall, "thickfreakness," was released yesterday.
