Arcade Fire Announce Summer Tour Dates, Four to Include Spoon

Arcade Fire announced a slew of July/August tour dates today in support of their forthcoming record, The Suburbs, out 8/3 (Merge Records).

This is Arcade Fire's first US headlining tour since 2007's Neon Bible, but what's also cool is that Spoon will be special guesting at four of the dates (NYC; Philadelphia, PA; Washington, DC, and Atlanta, GA) for this leg of the tour.

$1 from every ticket sold will be donated to to Partners In Health, an organization helping impoverished communities around the world combat disease and poverty.

Public onsale for Boston, Philly, and Montreal dates starts here on Friday, 6/4, with presales via fanclub and such earlier. Brooklyn Vegan proclaims that the NYC tickets have a public onsale of Saturday, 6/12, with an AmEx presale 6/9 and fanclub presale 6/10. Ticketfly doesn't have the date up on their site for the 8/6 DC date at Merriweather, but you'd assume it should be this week with details.

We were told that pre-sale tickets for six of the dates (see below), including three of the four with Spoon, are supposed to be available now at the Arcade Fire website; however, no links are up yet so keep checking back there too.
