PJ Harvey Is Planning a 2024 North American Tour

The career-spanning setlist will go "back to album one"

Our bad fortune's slipping away: PJ Harvey is planning on coming to North America next fall.

The iconic songwriter is currently gearing up for a tour of Europe and the UK, which serve as her first shows since 2017 — besides some spoken word dates last year. In a Q&A with Vulture, she revealed that she'll be playing across the pond in the autumn of 2024.

While no definitive North American dates have been announced, Harvey said that her tour supporting I Inside the Old Year Dying will be career-spanning. "It'll be a look at all of my material over the years but with a concentration on the latest album," she said, before saying the setlist will go "back to album one."

"It's been a great joy actually to play some of those earlier songs. I haven't played many of them live for years. So I think it's gonna be a special show for that reason as well," Harvey continued.

When asked what she thinks her post-pandemic audiences will be like, she touched on people's lingering caution about being in large crowds, but said any changes in her shows come with her aging. "I'm looking after myself now as a 53-year-old and that will change the show. But there are wonderful things too, in that my voice is actually better than it's ever been," she said. "I think that is one of the lovely things about getting older as a singer, your voice discovers new depths and greater soulfulness because as we get to know ourselves better, we get more comfortable and accepting of ourselves."

A fall tour is fitting for Harvey, considering Let England Shake was named one of our definitive autumnal albums

So far, there's no word on when the North American dates will be announced.
