“We are excited to finally share our full tour itinerary for summer 2022,” the National said.

“The last couple years have given us ample time for reflection and rejuvenation. Summer 2022 is a time for reunion. We look forward to gathering with friends, old and new. United in music and light, suspended in time. We hope you can join us.” See the band’s full tour schedule below.

Tickets are set for sale Friday (April 1) at 10 am local time. The band will be partnering with Plus1 to donate $1 from each ticket to the PLUS1 Ukraine Relief Fund and also Buffalo String Works.

Marika Anthony-Shaw, co-Founder and CEO of PLUS1, told NME funds raised for the Ukraine Relief Fund will be used for “supporting humanitarian aid like food, shelter, and medical treatment” for the 10 million citizens forced to flee their homes and seek asylum after Russia’s February 24 invasion.

Anthony-Shaw added: “We will also be distributing funds to organisations serving the most vulnerable and those at highest risk of marginalisation. The PLUS1 Ukraine Relief Fund was designed to be responsive to disaster response, where needs and circumstances can change by the hour.”

Last week, Arcade Fire played a four-night stint at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom and raised $100,000 for Ukraine relief efforts through their partnership with PLUS1.

In the years since their last record, The National and its members have embarked on a wide range of projects. The band collaborated with Taylor Swift, with guitarist Aaron Dessner acting as producer on her albums ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’. Aaron also released another album with Bon Iver as Big Red Machine, while Devendorf released a surprise record as Royal Green and Berninger released his acclaimed debut solo album ‘Serpentine Prison‘.

The band’s busy live schedule for 2022 includes headline appearances at All Points East Festival in London and Primavera Sound in Barcelona. Visit here for dates, tickets and more information.
