The Revivalists announce ‘Into the Stars 2020’ tour, launch the Rev Causes Fund

The Revivalists are taking the bayou back on the road in the new year.

On Tuesday (Oct. 22), the New Orleans-founded band announced plans to embark on an early 2020 tour. Dubbed the Into the Stars 2020 headlining tour (yeah, we know…it’s a long one), the trek will find the group performing at venues across North America.

The 13-stop outing includes gigs in Toronto, Harrisburg, Detroit, Columbus, St. Louis, Chicago, Norfolk, and more. The excursion kicks off on Feb. 28 at The Grand Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut, and wraps up less than a month later on March 21 at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

Pre-sale tickets are currently available for purchase while general ticket sales begin this Friday, Oct. 25.

To coincide with the 2020 tour reveal, the band has also announced the launch of their Rev Causes Fund. One dollar from every Into the Stars tour ticket sold will be donated to their newly-established foundation.

According to the act, Rev Causes Fund is “an umbrella fund that will make donations to causes that are close to the band’s heart.”

“Rev Causes is a fund that supports the essential work of organizations dedicated to reviving and investing in our communities, our health, and our environment,” the band says in a press statement about their new foundation.

“By donating a portion of our ticket sales, and through fan donations and a variety of fundraising efforts, we aim to assist these exciting organizations in building a better future. Rev Causes is kind of like our music: It comes from a lot of different places and covers a lot of ground, but ultimately, it’s all about what we believe in. We’re proud to be supporting these causes and grateful for this opportunity to spread the love.”

The first set of causes that will benefit from the Rev Causes Fund are the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, Everytown For Gun Safety Support Fund, National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Songs for Kids Foundation, and Upturn Arts.

Even if you’re not going to any of the Revivalists’ upcoming shows, you can still show your support by donating directly to any of the causes.

Before closing the book on their exhaustive 2019, the group still has a handful of shows on their itinerary.

Those gigs include Florida Man Music Festival in Orlando (Nov. 22), Riptide Music Festival in Fort Lauderdale (Nov. 23), 97X Next Big Thing in Tampa (Nov. 24), and their annual hometown shows at the end of December (RevHeads Ball on Dec. 30 at Tipitina’s and their annual New Year’s Eve show on Dec. 31 at the Fillmore).
