Fresh off a recent Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album, PJ Harvey is plotting her biggest North American tour in nearly a decade and Richmond’s the National made the cut.

Harvey will perform here touring behind “The Hope Six Demolition Project” on Saturday, April 22 with doors at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 in advance, or $50 at the door for the all-ages show. They go on-sale Friday, Dec. 9 at 10 a.m.

Reviews have been strong for the album, the Los Angeles Times wrote:

"Rhythms, in the form of militant drum beats, create a boots-on-the-ground feel. Guitars, jagged and fiery, cut through the groove like a fist in the air. And saxophones are raw, dirty and ready to howl… If times are tough, Harvey seemed to be saying, we may as well go down swinging.”
