Did you catch Neon Trees’ appearance on NBC’s “Today” show on Friday? The group played Rockefeller as part of the Toyota Concert series on the early morning program, a fine way to spread the word about their best-selling Pop Psychology album. The lead single, “Sleeping With A Friend,” has already been certified gold.
Now it’s tour time. The band has a few stops before the fall tour officially begins. Neon Trees will play Seattle’s “Bumbershoot Festival” Sept. 1 and the L.A. County Fair in Pomona, Calif., Sept. 4 before heading to Europe for a few gigs. Returning to North America, the group will appear at the “X96 Big Ass Show” in Salt Lake City Sept. 27 and is on the lineup for the “Alice 97.3 Now & Zen Fest” in San Francisco Sept. 28.
