Lake Street Dive on Tour 2021 – US Tour Announcement
Lake Street Dive is ready to get back to one of their favorite things: touring! The folk and indie group will begin concerts on August 21st in Portland, ME, and make stops in 14 cities before ending on October 20th in Wilmington, NC.
This will be the first Lake Street Dive tour in nearly two years, since before COVID-19 paused live music. However, the born performers didn’t even let a global pandemic stop them from playing.
The quartet performed as the musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! In May, in support of their 2021 album, Obviously, and a series of virtual concerts for fans to live stream. But going back to the album — fans and critics loved it! Obviously focuses on topics like climate change, failed relationships, and female empowerment, things that most of us can relate to, and provided a bit of strength for listeners even in the darkest of times.
This tour won’t just mark the first time that Lake Street Dive plays news tracks like “Hush Money,” “Hypotheticals,” and “Same Old News” from the stage. It also signifies their first extended concert dates without founding member Mike Olson. This bittersweet event turned the former quintet into a quartet for the first time in nearly two decades.
“After 16 years playing in Lake Street Dive, it is time for a change,” Olson wrote in May. “I’m going to hang up my trumpet and let someone else take a turn on the tour bus.” While it’s unclear who will be taking his place in the band, Olson’s influence is Lake Street Dive is undeniable and will follow the group for years to come.
