The National to play Boston’s Pavilion

, Staff

The National, one of Ohio’s finer exports, will hit the road this summer for a tour that will bring them to Massachusetts in September. The band, now based out of Brooklyn, will grace the stage at Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion Friday, September 9. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $20 to $30, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. Also on the bill will be indie rock favorites Yo La Tengo and folk duo Wye Oak.

Next month, The National will begin a two-month tour through before returning stateside in September. The band is still riding high off last year’s High Violet. The album, the band’s fifth studio effort and followup to their 2007 breakthrough album Boxer, debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and landed in countless “Best of 2010” lists. The band has since released a pair of new songs: “Exile Vilify” on the soundtrack for the “Portal 2” video game and “Think You Can Wait” on the soundtrack for the film “Win Win” by Tom McCarthy.
