Legacy French electronic duo Air today announced their first tour of North America since 2010. Beginning June 4 at NYC's Governors Ball and closing out three weeks later at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles on June 25, the tour will commemorate the duo's 2016 retrospective compilation twentyears

Other stops on the tour include Chicago's Auditorium Theatre on June 20 and the Santa Barbara Bowl on June 24.  twentyears was Air's first-ever anthology, and it features two previously unreleased tracks as well as collaborations with Jarvis Cocker, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Françoise Hardy.

To really dig into Air's multi-decade history as a band, revisit their four-hour BBC essential mix from 1998, featuring David Bowie, the Beasties Boys, and the Beatles.
