Young The Giant Announces Co-Headlining Tour With Fitz And The Tantrums

February 19, 2019

This summer is going to be extra bright for Young the Giant and Fitz and the Tantrum fans. On Tuesday (February 19) the bands announced they'd be embarking on a co-headlining U.S. tour that runs from June through August. The cross country trek sees the dance inducing alt bands perform at iconic outdoor theatres like Red Rocks and The Greek in Berkeley, as well as arenas throughout the States. COIN will act as support in June and July, and Alice Merton is set to open during the August shows.

“It is with great honor that we announce our Summer 2019 North American Tour with our dear friends Fitz and the Tantrums!" Young the Giant frontman Sameer Gadhia said in a statement. "We’re looking forward to returning to some of these iconic venues and bringing our show outdoors again this summer. Our single 'Superposition' is about two forces becoming one. It’s a song with a message that’s defied odds and garnered an overwhelming reaction. It’s perfectly fitting, then, that our co-headline concept this summer is about combining two properties. We are excited to see you out there!”

“We couldn’t be more excited to take over the summer with our friends Young The Giant on this co-headline tour!" Michael "Fitz" Fitzpatrick of Fitz and the Tantrums added. "This is going to be a big year for Fitz and the Tantrums. We’ve got a lot of exciting news to come that we can’t wait to share with our fans.”
