Summer Festivals Tour 2018
This was a short tour of Summer festivals (before the break and the subsequent album drop) around the world, including their first shows at Rock am Ring and Rock im Park after 8 years. Despite being called the Summer festivals tour, half of the tour took place in Spring. The tour began in Mexico and ended in Portugal.

As mentioned above, the short tour began with the performance at Pa'l Norte festival in Monterrey, Mexico, and ended with the Rock in Rio festival in Lisbon, Portugal.
The stage design was again the same as the North American Summer Amphitheatre Tour and the Summer Festivals Tour 2016 with the monoliths behind the band, allthough the sets were a lot less Drones-tour-like.
