All the action, on and off the stage
American indie rockers originally hailing from Cincinnati, The National are now based in New York. In the early years of the 21st century they were more loved by the critics than the public, but found greater success with 2010’s High Violet. This album earned them gold status in many countries and last year they performed to a packed audience at the Royal Albert Hall in 2010. They should expect a rapturous welcome when they make their return to Reading and Leeds after five years.
