Steven Wilson has announced a 26-date North American tour for later this year.

He’ll head out on the road in support of his 2017 album To The Bone – kicking off at Vogue in Vancouver on November 15 and wrapping up with a performance at the Tobin Centre in San Antonio on December 21.

Wilsons says: “I’m pleased to announce that the To The Bone tour will return to North America in November and December of this year, playing many cities I didn't get a chance to visit on the previous leg of the tour – including six shows in Canada.”

Tickets for the tour will go on sale on Friday (August 3) at 10am local time.

Wilson previously revealed that his fifth solo album was inspired by 80s pop records, telling Prog: “As I’ve gotten older, my listening diet has changed and I’ve gotten immersed in certain artists again after seeing them on things like old Top Of The Pops shows.

“In the last couple of years I’ve found myself listening to the progressive pop albums of the 80s: Kate Bush’s Hounds Of Love, Peter Gabriel’s So, Tears For Fears’ Songs From The Big Chair and The Seeds Of Love, and Talk Talk’s Spirit Of Eden.

“People think the 80s were a shallow, superficial era, but those records were really smart.”
