Lake Street Dive has announced a new batch of North American spring and summer 2022 tour dates. Following its previously announced dates, the band will head up to Toronto and continue through the east and Midwest US, making a stop in Cincinnati, Ohio at The Andrew J Brady Music Center on Tuesday, August 16.
Lake Street Dive’s Obviously, produced by Grammy Award winner Mike Elizondo and released last year on Nonesuch Records, was critically acclaimed and debuted at #5 on Billboard’s Top Albums chart while also delivering career best chart peaks at #1 on Americana/Folk, #2 on Current Rock Albums, and #2 on Current Alternative Albums charts. In addition, lead single “Hypotheticals” reached #2 on the AAA chart and topped both the Non-Commercial and Americana Radio Singles Chart, all marking career highs for the band. Elizondo has been nominated for a Grammy Award for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical for his work on Obviously, among other records. The Associated Press said, “You need to make this band part of your life. Lake Street Dive have never sounded better, full and clear with every instrument given a chance to shine in every song.”
Throughout last year, Lake Street Dive appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the Ellen DeGeneres Show, and CBS This Morning: Saturday Sessions. The band’s NPR Music Tiny Desk (Home) Concert, which premiered last spring, can be seen here.
