Switchfoot is excited to announce that they will be joining Blue October on a US tour this summer.
Tour dates will be announced on Thursday May 28th, with a PRESALE for our FRIENDS OF THE FOOT starting on Monday June 1st at 10am local venue time.
General onsale will be on Friday June 5th at 10am local venue time. Ticketing links and full show info will be posted shortly.
Color me stoked. I remember hearing Blue October's singles, "Hate Me" and "Into the Ocean" endlessly on the radio a couple years back. Not a huge fan, but I must say that it's pretty sweet that Switchfoot gets another run with a pretty big band in the adult contemporary/modern rock genre. (see 3 Doors Down Tour last year).
We'll see what comes of this. What are your thoughts on the band? On Switchfoot's decision to go on an actual tour this summer?
