Counting Crows have revealed their plans to launch the North American leg of their world tour this summer and will be performing music from their forthcoming album on the trek.
The new album isn't expected to be released until this fall, but the band will be giving fans a preview of what's to come on the summer tour which will feature support from Toad The Wet Sprocket.
The North American tour is scheduled to kick off on June 11th at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa, FL and conclude on August 17th at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz had this to say, "We spent the fall writing songs in New York, and we spent the winter recording them out in Berkeley. We finished a new album of all new songs, and we're looking forward to getting out on the road and playing them. Come out and see us - we're excited about this."
Toad The Wet Sprocket will be on the tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of their debut album Bread & Circus and supporting their most recent album, New Constellation.
"We're honored to be on the road with Counting Crows on the summer of our 25th anniversary. We recently released New Constellation, our first album in 16 years. Adam Duritz is partially responsible - five years after we broke up, he asked us to reform and play a few shows opening for Counting Crows," said lead vocalist and guitarist Glen Phillips. "That tour was the first crack in the ice, and now we are back together, touring again with the band that first encouraged us to give it another go."
The entire tour will run through 2015, with more dates to be announced soon.
