The Honda Civic Tour announced a couple of weeks ago that Paramore and Tegan and Sara will top a bill that promises “additional acts TBA.” But the actual hard data – date, city and venue – remained cloaked in secrecy until today.
As mentioned, the first night goes to Raleigh and the brand-spanking new Boutique Amphitheatre located in the city’s downtown area.
Harrington hosts the tour’s second night, taking place at the Delaware State Fair July 24. Two nights later the tour arrives in Wallingford, Conn., at Toyota Presents The Oakdale Theatre. Hmmm… the Honda Civic Tour at a Toyota-sponsored venue. Should be interesting.
The tour also plays Mansfield, Mass., at Comcast Center July 28; Norfolk’s Constant Convocation Center July 30; Gilford, N.H., at the Meadowbrook Pavilion Aug. 3 and Philadelphia at Penns Landing Aug. 4. Cities also on the schedule include Cincinnati (Aug. 12), Chicago (Aug. 18), Atlanta (Sept. 1), Houston (Sept. 8) and San Jose (Sept. 17) before wrapping in Anaheim at the very appropriately named Honda Center Sept. 19.
Tegan and Sara will not appear July 27-28 and 30.
“We are so excited to be headlining the Honda Civic Tour and to hit all theses great cities and see our fans across the country,” Paramore’s Hayley Williams said. “We have a killer lineup and can’t wait until July!”
Of course, the tour is named after an automobile company for a reason, and this year it will give away a Honda Civic Si Coupe to one, soon-to-be very lucky fan. Autographed by Paramore, the car will be on display at each tour stop.
A presale for Paramore Fanclub members began today while the general onsale date is March 27. For more information, click here for the Honda Civic Tour Web site.
