AFI Unveil Early 2014 North American Tour Dates
AFI are in the process of completing their 2013 touring, with just a couple of California stops left in December. But North American fans won’t be without the band for very long as AFI will return to the road in early 2014.
The veteran rockers are currently supporting their ‘Burials’ album, which debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard chart earlier this fall. The disc is buoyed by the breakout tracks ‘I Hope You Suffer’ and ’17 Crimes.’ After a fall full of North American tour dates (see our review and gallery of their NYC show), AFI just revealed the stops for the second leg, which kicks off Jan. 10 in Tucson, Ariz.
The new leg will start in the Southwest, heading through the Southeast and Midwest before wrapping Jan. 29 in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. After a brief respite in early February, the group will head down under for the traveling Soundwave Festival in Australia in late February, with late March and early April appearances at the Lollapalooza festivals in Chile, Argentina and Brazil to follow. In the midst of the Lollapallooza events, the group will also play the Festival Estero Picnic in Bogota, Colombia.
Ticketing information and support acts for the North American tour will be announced shortly, but for the time being check out the band’s first 2014 tour dates below:
