The National Hit Canada on North American Summer Tour
The National will be staying plenty busy this summer, as they have just announced a new round of North American tour dates. And among the stops are multiple Canadian appearances.

This morning, the band added a North American summer leg to their ongoing touring activities, including Canadian stops in Ottawa, Winnipeg and Edmonton. That Ottawa stop comes as part of the newly announced RBC Bluesfest.

The National have also lined up a series of notable openers for the trek, including Lucy Dacus, Julia Jacklin and Sharon Van Etten.

You can see the National's newly expanded tour down below. Tickets for the North American summer tour go on sale Friday (February 21) at 10 a.m. local time.

The tour comes in support of the National's most recent album, 2019's I Am Easy to Find.
