The Smile Announce 2022 North American Tour
The Smile will play their first shows in North America later this year when they embark on a fall tour of the United States and Canada.
Featuring Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood, The Smile will kick off the tour on November 14 in Providence, RI, and will perform in 19 cities across North America. They will complete the trek a little over a month later on December 21 in Los Angeles. The band are currently touring the UK and Europe.
You can see a full list of North American show dates below. Tickets will be available June 17 on the band’s website.
The Smile recently released their first studio album, A light to attract attention. In addition to Yorke and Greenwood, the band includes Sons of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. The album features string arrangements performed by the London Contemporary Orchestra, as well as a full horn section of British jazz players.
“I am grateful that we have been able, with the help of Nigel, to record these songs in a way that they deserve,” Greenwood said in a statement in April. The LP was released digitally on May 13 and will be available in physical format on June 17.
