Grammy Award winner Beck has just revealed plans for a co-headlining tour with Cage the Elephant.

The artists will team-up for a 30-date trek across North America this summer, including one Canadian stop in Toronto on Aug. 11.

Texan rockers Spoon are one of the few bands invited as a special guest on the “Night Running” tour.

Up-and-comers Starcrawler, Wild Belle and Sunflower Bean — who are scheduled for Toronto — will also rotate as the opening acts throughout the extensive tour.

The “Night Running” tour shares its name with a track from Cage the Elephant’s long-awaited and upcoming record, Social Cues.

The song is set to feature Beck and will be released on April 19, along with the rest of the album.

Beck is still celebrating the success of his latest and critically-acclaimed studio album, Colors (2017). It was nominated for three Grammys last week.

Although he was beat out by Lady Gaga for “Best Pop Solo Performance,” the Loser singer took home two awards for Colors, including: “Best Alternative Music Album” and “Best Engineered Album (Non-classical).”

As of this writing, it’s unclear whether Beck is working on new music in-studio.
