Will Butler Expands North American Tour

Will Butler Expands North American Tour
Will Butler's jam-packed year just got even busier. Not only is the Arcade Fire member releasing his debut solo album, Policy, on March 10 through Merge Records, but he's in the midst of a series of songs inspired by news events, and now he's expanded his upcoming tour schedule.

Butler had already mapped out a string of March dates including stops in Toronto and Montreal. Since the initial tour announcement, he's added a second night in Montreal. After that, he will head to Europe before coming back to this continent in late May and early June. This leg is mostly in the U.S., but he will play a Canadian date in Vancouver with Perfume Genius on May 21.

See the expanded schedule below. Stay tuned all this week for Butler to continue to roll out news-inspired songs for The Guardian.
