The Gaslight Anthem just announced their first show in three years — an appearance at 2018’s Governor’s Ball. Not only that, but the band will be performing their sophomore album, The ’59 Sound, in full.
This was welcome news to fans of the band, although some were wondering if this was just a one-off performance near the band’s hometown. Fear not, however, as The Gaslight Anthem tweeted out that this was not the case.
Hello everyone! The ‘59 Sound is turning 10 this year so we’re gonna do some shows to celebrate.
Thank you all for your continued support, more shows to be announced soon!

No further information has been given at this time, so this could mean a couple different things. There might be a whole tour, just a handful of nationwide shows, or just local east coast shows. In the meantime, let’s all reflect on just how good The ’59 Sound was — and still is.
As mentioned above, these would be the Gaslight Anthem’s first shows in three years. In 2014 they released their latest album, Get Hurt.
It is also unclear when these dates would be, as guitarist/vocalist Brian Fallon has a lot of solo plans for 2018. Fallon will be releasing his sophomore album, Sleepwalkers, on February 9th and doing a headlining tour to support the release. The tour wraps up in the beginning of May, though, which is just in time for a summer tour for The Gaslight Anthem (if that’s the route they decide to take).
