French electronic duo Air will embark on their first American tour since 2010 this June in support of their 20th anniversary anthology, Twentyears.
The tour begins with a June 4th set at Governors Ball in New York City and includes stops in Boston, Washington, Chicago, San Francisco and Santa Barbara. The trek wraps June 25th at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale April 7th at 10 a.m. local time.
Air released Twentyears last June. The compilation boasts some of the group’s best known songs – such as like “Cherry Blossom Girl,” “Playground Love” and “Sexy Boy” – as well as several rare and unreleased tracks and remixes Air did for other artists. Air’s last studio album was 2014’s Music for Museum, which was commissioned by the Lille Palace of Fine Arts in Lille, France.
Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel formed Air in Versailles, France in 1995 after playing in several other bands together. The group’s first EP, Premiers Symptômes, arrived in 1997, while their breakthrough debut album, Moon Safari, arrived 1998.
