the Mann & The Bowery Presents
The National return to the Mann this summer on September 27 in support of their critically acclaimed new album Sleep Well Beast with special guests Cat Power and Phoebe Bridgers.
There are songs on Sleep Well Beast that are instantly recognizable as the National, but others are much harder to classify. The lyrics are about “trying to come clean about the things you’d rather not,” says Matt. “Some of it’s about marriage, some of it’s about my relationship with Aaron and the band, some of it’s about train tracks and dancing.” Guitar solos appear like never before, yet on some songs, guitars account for only a tiny fraction of the music. “It was important that we genuinely explore new territory and risk falling on our faces, or not make a record at all,” explains Aaron. “This album feels complete to me.”
Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster.com, (800) 745-3000, or the Mann Box Office.
The National has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket will go to organizations bringing equity, dignity, and access to communities who need it.
For tonight’s concert, we are conducting a trial of a new parking payment system. In addition to accepting cash, we will be accepting payment via credit and debit cards. Due to the fact this is only a trial run, we recommend still having cash on hand. We look forward to this new system providing a more convenient and hassle-free experience for our customers.
Picnics are not allowed for this performance.
If you are 21 years of age or older and plan to consume alcohol at the concert, please be prepared to present proper I.D.
Lawn chairs are permitted for this performance. The Mann recommends reasonably sized chairs; be a good neighbor!
Small blankets are permitted for all shows, but we do ask that you be mindful of your neighbors on the lawn.
