The band also brought out Steve Lacy for the live debut of their collab 'Sunflower' during their sold-out MSG show.

In the final moments of Vampire Weekend's concert at Madison Square Garden on Friday night (Sept. 6), the rockers dropped a string of new tour dates to keep the Father of the Bride trek going for one more round in North America in the coming year.   

The rockers -- who've been touring behind their latest LP since March -- live-streamed their performance in New York via Live Nation's Twitter, and took the opportunity to broadcast their plans that'll lead them well into next year. They had previously announced that they'd be kicking off their 2020 with sets at Australia's Falls Festival (in Byron Bay on Jan. 2 and Fremantle on Jan. 4), but they've just added 19 North American dates starting in Westbrook, Maine on May 29. 

Vampire Weekend's sold-out MSG show was an eventful one; the band brought out collaborator Steve Lacy for the live debut of their Father of the Bride collaboration "Sunflower," and his track “Dark Red.” Opener Angélique Kidjo also dueted with the band on "Jerusalem, New York, Berlin."

Vampire Weekend continue their fall tour with Soccer Mommy on Sept. 25 in Vancouver.
