    Let it happen: Tame Impala, the Australian psych-rock juggernaut, have officially announced the first round of tour dates for spring 2020 -- with a San Diego show right smack at the top of the bunch. 

    The celebrated, Kevin Parker-masterminded group is coming to Pechanga Arena (formerly Valley View Casino Center, Sports Arena, etc.) on Monday, March 9, 2020, with support from on-the-rise bedroom-pop artist Clairo.

    Tickets for the show go on sale to the general public on Saturday, Nov. 9, at noon PST at this link and range in price from $49.50-$79.50. The show is all-ages.

    Set to coincide with the release of the band's long-awaited and highly anticipated fourth studio album, "The Slow Rush" (due out on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14), San Diego has the distinct pleasure of being the very first city played on the first leg of the just-announced mini tour, with Los Angeles (the Forum), San Francisco (Chase Center) and Mexico City (Foro Sol) scheduled in following days.

    To-date, Tame Impala have released three singles from the upcoming record -- "It Might Be Time," "Borderline" and "Patience" -- and made an unforgettable appearance on "Saturday Night Live" in March where they performed the latter two songs. If those tracks are any indication, "The Slow Rush" may just be the band's biggest success yet.
