Reno, Nev.The Shins announced new tour dates this week, extending what is already a huge worldwide tour in support of their fantastic fifth studio album, “Heartworms.” The additional dates include stops in Los Angeles and Washington D.C. as well as Reno’s Grand Sierra Resort and Casino (GSR) on Saturday, Oct. 7 with special guest Day Wave. Produced by James Mercer, The Shins’ fifth album, “Heartworms,” was released March 10 to a wave of acclaim; Entertainment Weekly called it the “band’s boldest album yet” and “a rewarding and singular addition to the Shins’ catalog.” Rolling Stone lauded its “home-brewed feel, heavy on Beach Boys grandeur, New Wave kicks, squiggly synth-pop and warm-weather soft rock – with lyrics tenderly balanced between midlife malaise and youthful romanticism. The result is some of the most charming music he's ever made,” while Time magazine opined “Heartworms works on a grander scale, with ornate sonic tableaux.” Tickets for this show start at $27.50 and are on sale now at or by calling 1-800-648-3568.

The Grand Theatre has marked itself as one of the top entertainment venues in the West with a capacity of more than 2,700, including well-appointed luxury seats with more legroom, wider seats and wider aisles. In addition, exclusive VIP booths with personalized beverage and bottle service are available for small groups and special occasions. Designed by John Sergio Fisher & Associates, the theatre also includes a two-tiered entry with an all-new, enclosed lobby, state-of-the-art lighting and sound renovations, as well as new artist facilities including dressing rooms, green rooms and an artist lounge.
