Garbage has begun lining up dates for a North American tour, set to open April 19 in Toronto and run through May, according to the band's official Web site. The group, which recently returned from a string of Australian dates, is also due to play a few European shows in early April. More cities will be announced shortly.
With only a brief run supporting U2 last year to its credit, Garbage's new dates mark its first major North American outing in support of last year's Interscope album "Beautifulgarbage," which has sold nearly 300,000 copies in the U.S. to date, according to SoundScan. Drummer Butch Vig was forced to miss several European shows last November after contracting Hepatitis A, but is now fully recovered.
Later this summer, Garbage is scheduled to support the Red Hot Chili Peppers on two French dates: June 19 in Nice and the following day in Lyon. The two acts, as well as Rammstein and Steve Earle, are also confirmed to appear at the annual Roskilde Festival in Copenhagen, which runs June 27-30.
Those who need a more immediate Garbage fix can watch vocalist Shirley Manson tonight (Feb. 26) on CBS' "The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn."
