Thurston Moore will tour the United States in 2012.

Thurston Moore (of Sonic Youth) will embark upon a solo tour of the United States in 2012. This announcement comes a month after ex-wife/co-bandleader Kim Gordon and Moore divorced, leaving Sonic Youth’s future in doubt. I’m trying really hard not to make a depressing “flying solo” double entendre here, so let’s just move on to the tour dates, shall we?

01-29 Burlington, VT – First Unitarian Church
01-30 Portland, ME – SPACE Gallery
