Yeah Yeah Yeahs Announce Summer US And European Tour Dates, Share Blacktop Video

Tuesday, 07 February 2023 Written by Jon Stickler

Yeah Yeah Yeahs have announced US and European tour dates for the summer. 

The reunited trio have confirmed shows all over the United States in May and June, alongside previously scheduled festival appearances at Shaky Knees, Just Like Heaven, and Boston Calling.

Later in the summer, the band will play European gigs in the Netherlands, Germany, and the UK, where they'll make an appearance at London's All Points East festival supporting The Strokes on August 25. Tickets for their new dates go on general sale at 10am local time this Friday (February 10).

Alongside news of the shows, they’ve shared the David Black-directed video for Blacktop, which can be found on their 2022 album 'Cool It Down'. Singer Karen O said:

"Blacktop stuck out to me early on, the demo was very stripped down instrumentally and emotionally. It was a step towards what radical closeness feels like after a long separation. Each record has one of these diamonds in the rough that just feels like flying to me. It felt right to keep the video as stripped down and dare I say beautiful in its naïveté.

"David Black put us in front of his '70s analog video camera with the intention to pull stills for band shots. He had me sing to Blacktop before I had even memorized the lyrics, I thought I knew the song by heart but it felt like an introduction, like meeting it for the first time. It wasn’t intended to end up as a video and as a return to the earliest visuals from the record it completes a circle, we’re so happy we have it, a simple layered performance for a deceptively simple song. We hope you enjoy."
