The year is about to wrap up in a couple of weeks, but Dance Gavin Dance is already plotting their tour schedule for 2017. On Monday (Dec. 12), the California-founded band announced plans to hit the road during the early months of the new year. The upcoming trek is set to kick off on Feb. 24 at El Rey Theatre in Albuquerque and wrap up almost a month later on March 19 at Ace of Spades in Sacramento.
The United States-centric tour will also feature Chon for the complete excursion. Chon, much like Dance Gavin Dance, has been busy touring in support of their recent record, and debut album, Grow. Grow was released in 2015 through Sumerian Records. The San Diego-based band spent most of the year on the road with acts like Periphery, Sikth, and Between the Buried and Me.
Tickets for the tour will go on sale to the general public this Friday, Dec. 16, while VIP packages for both bands are currently on sale. The VIP packages, which cost $50.00 a piece, will include early entry, meet and greet, photo op, a poster, and a VIP lanyard. For now, check out the complete itinerary for the tour.
