Eclectic Australian psych-rockers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have announced a 2023 North American “residency tour” featuring multi-night runs in several cities. A press release announcing the tour notes that these will be the band’s only U.S. performances in 2023.

The newly announced run of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard U.S. tour dates will begin with a run of shows at Pelham, TN’s The Caverns featuring two nights in the venue’s famed underground space (June 1st, 2nd) and one at the complex’s larger, above-ground The Caverns Amphitheater (June 3rd).

[UPDATE 11/21/22]: Following the rapid sell-out of the three initially announced King Gizzard dates at The Caverns, the band has added a fourth show in Pelham, TN set to take place at The Caverns Amphitheater on June 4th. Tickets for the newly added 6/4 date at The Caverns Amphitheater go on sale on Monday, November 21st at 12:00 p.m. CT. For ticketing information, head here.

From there, King Giz will return to Morrison, CO’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre for a three-show run. Unlike the band’s Red Rocks stint in 2022, which featured three “marathon” concerts spread over three nights, the 2023 Red Rocks run will feature a regular-length show on Wednesday, June 7th followed by two separately ticketed shows (early and late) on Thursday, June 8th.

Next, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s 2023 residency tour will move to Chicago, IL for three consecutive nights at the recently opened The Salt Shed on June 11th, 12th, and 13th. The band will then head west that weekend for a three-night run at Carnation, WA’s Carnation Farms (6/16, 6/17, 6/18). Finally, the tour will wrap up on Wednesday, June 21st with a three-hour “marathon set” at the historic Hollywood Bowl in Los Angels, CA.

“USA, we love you,” the band said in a tour announcement post on social media. “So much so we’re coming back as soon as we can. We all waited so long for our last lap around the country it feels like a such a wild and exciting privilege to be coming back so soon. We like to keep things interesting, different, fun and unexpected for us but also for you, our fans. So we’ve hand picked some really unique venues around the country to camp out in for a few nights. Set up shop and really get to know the place. Yep, it’s a RESIDENCY tour. Rocks, Farms, Caves and Salt Sheds. Sounds like an album title? Maybe one day.”

In addition to revealing their 2o23 U.S. tour plans, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have announced a number of theatrical screenings of their 2020 live concert film, Chunky Schrapnel. The feature-length film, directed by John Angus Stewart and distributed to cinemas via Abramorama, brings audiences onto the stages of the band’s 2019 U.K. and Europe tour. Screenings will predominantly take place one night only on December 7th. A full list of cities and dates can be found here.
