Find your best skinny jeans and slip on your favorite faded band tee because three of the best acts produced by the post-2000s emo resurgence are going on tour together for the first time this summer. Dashboard Confessional and All-American Rejects have announced they will co-headline amphitheaters across the nation through July and August with support from the world’s greatest pop rock band, The Maine, and we have all the information you need to know.
Kicking off in Costa Mesa, California on July 13, Dashboard’s latest summer co-headlining (the group previously spent a summer with Third Eye Blind) will criss-cross the united states over the course of four weeks before ending in Chicago on August 15. Tickets will be on sale in all markets soon and are expected to go fast. The full list of dates and venues can be found below.
Perhaps the most surprising and exciting bit of news in this announcement is the addition of The Maine to this long-rumored lineup. The members of The Maine have developed a fervent community of loyal fans whose devotion has allowed the band to thrive without the backing of a label. The Maine are living the dream are independent groups aspire to, and this tour is yet another accomplishment in a career that continues to impress even the most devoted believers.
