Well, maybe not all evil in the world, but the co-bill teaming of Collective Soul and Gavin DeGraw is sure to bring smiles to the fans and put more than a few keisters in the seats.
Although Collective Soul and Gavin DeGraw have never toured together before, it turns out they’re fans of each other, making this outing more like summer vacation among friends than a business decision to sell tickets.
The tour starts in Cleveland at House of Blues on June 22 and the last date on the current schedule is July 15 in Fort Lauderdale at Revolution.
Between Cleveland and Fort Lauderdale look for the tour to touch down in Indianapolis at the Egyptian Room (June 24); Des Moines at the Arts Festival (June 26); and Kansas City at the Beaumont Club (June 29).
July stops include Tulsa at the Spirit Bank Center (July 7); Southaven, Miss., at Snowden Grove Amphitheatre (July 9); Chicago at the World’s Largest Block Party (July 10); Columbus, Ohio, at Lifestyle Communities Pavilion (July 11); Myrtle Beach, S.C., at House of Blues and Lake Buena Vista, Fla., at House of Blues.
