Today alt-J announces a tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of their Mercury Prize-winning debut album, An Awesome Wave. Starting in March of 2023, each show on the tour will feature a full performance of the album for the first time in the US. Earlier this year, the band celebrated the album’s anniversary with a worldwide digital concert event and exclusive new podcast series.

Of the latest addition to that celebration, the band says:

“It’s been such a great year promoting both The Dream and An Awesome Wave’s 10th anniversary that we have decided to extend the party into 2023. We are delighted to announce a run of AAW anniversary shows in the US in March where we will play the album in full for the first time in America. We hope you can join us.”

Presales begin next Wednesday, December 7th, at 10 am local time, concluding on Thursday, December 8th, with general on-sale beginning Friday. December 9th at 10 am local time.
