Real Estate announces more tour dates. No Nashville date… or is there?

Real Estate gave us the glimpse to that highly acclaimed sophomore LP Days back in July when they played that Sounds Like Summer gig at The Hard Rock in Nashville.  Days released in October of last year, and was on almost every Best of 2011 list that I saw.  And, then there is that “pushy” Tom Scharpling directed video they released for the opening track “Easy” from Days a couple of weeks ago.

Today, blogs all over the internet are exploding with the updated tour schedule for Real Estate, and it’s clear that there is no Nashville date on the tour… or is there?  I’ve attached the tour schedule below, and there is the always mysterious June gap that lends the thinking to a possible Bonnaroo set.  It certainly wouldn’t be a stretch as they are already announced to perform Coachella, so there is their big festival CV for the year.

I’ve attached, the tour schedule after the jump, and you can ponder which Tent they may take over on a blazing hot June afternoon near Nashville this summer.  While you are thinking about Bonnaroo, head over and check out our most recent Rumors post.
