The tour will also feature support from indie pop band Haim, who have previously collaborated with Vampire Weekend on their song “This Life”. Haim’s highly anticipated third album is also set to be released this year, making this tour a must-see for fans of both bands.

Tickets for the tour will go on sale on February 8, with a pre-sale for fans who pre-order the album. A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to various charities, including the Southern Poverty Law Center and the ACLU.
