Following a mini tour at the beginning of 2015, The Get Up Kids decided to make it a full-fledged year of celebrating their 20th anniversary. The “emo pioneers” announced back in June that they were heading out on tour with the Hotelier and Josh Berwanger for the summer. Then, after staying quiet about a potential second leg, they confirmed the news that they were not only going to visit the East coast in the winter, but that they would be taking Into It. Over It. and Rozwell Kid for the ride.
Now, several months after the second leg was announced, The Get Up Kids have revealed that they have added three more stops to their winter trek. The new stops will include a second day at the Double Door in Chicago, a stop at the recordBar in Kansas City, MO (TGUK’s hometown) with Josh Berwanger, and a stop at the Bell House in Brooklyn, NY.
The newly added tour dates can be seen below in bold while tickets are reportedly already on sale.
