The National tickets - The National Tour

The National Schedule

Likened to Leonard Cohen, Wilco, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and Joy Division, The National is a Brooklyn-based powerhouse indie rock band that has taken the nation by storm. Since their arrival on the music scene, they've continually worked on perfecting their sound and developing new ways to deliver some of the finest live performances of today. The band's gloomy almost-miserable lyrics give an underrepresented demographic something to sing along to.

They're headed out on the road in 2014 with concerts scheduled at the: Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California; Massey Hall in Toronto, Ontario; Calvin College Van Noord Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan; Chicago Theatre in Chicago, Illinois; ACL Live at The Moody Theater in Austin, Texas; Santa Barbara Bowl in Santa Barbara, California; Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California; Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington; and Les Schwab Amphitheatre in Bend, Oregon.

The National Background

Formed in Cincinnati, Ohio, two of its members, Matt Berninger and Scott Devendorf first met in 1991 while attending the University of Cincinnati's DAAP college of graphic design program. They also met Mike Brewer, Casey Reas and Jeff Salem. Together, they decided to launch a lo-fi garage band coined Nancy, with their main musical inspiration being the band, Pavement. They only managed to cut one album, Ruther 3429, in the span of five years. They disbanded when Devendorf, Berninger, Reas and Salem relocated to Brooklyn.

Childhood friends, Bryan Devendorf, Bryce Dessner and Aaron Dessner, had played in a string of bands together for several years. And, when their band, Project Nim, split up in 1998, they teamed up with Matt Berninger and Scott Devendorf in Brooklyn.

In their early days, several of the members held down day jobs while playing free Sunday night shows consistently at the well-known NYC Lower East Side venue, Luna Lounge.

They eventually quit their cushy jobs in New York City to get down and dirty on stage, proving how much music means to them. This directly translates to their live performances, which are filled with driving rhythms and singer Matt Berninger's deep baritone voice.

The National is known for its lyrics that are depicted as "dark, melancholy and difficult to interpret."

The National is currently on the road, and fans can get tickets to see them rock the stage live! Reserve your spot today through StubHub!


The National Albums

The National began as a studio band, but fans eventually demanded them to leave the studio for the stage. The band's 2005 album Alligator notched a spot on the LA Times' Album of the Year charts, and the compilation Boxer followed up with the same energy. High Violet was issued in May 2010 to vast critical acclaim in the U.S. This album also premiered with first week sales topping charts across the globe, ranking No. 3 in the U.S., No. 2 in Canada, No. 5 in the U.K. and No. 3 in Portugal. The album additionally scored with album sales, selling over 285,000 copies in the U.S. and 600,000 copies globally. High Violet is currently a gold album in Canada, Denmark, Ireland, Australia, Belgium and the U.K.
