It’s going to be 20 years since Atreyu’s inception, and now the group is ready to celebrate the only way they know how to; on the road with their fans. On Monday (Aug. 19), the California-founded band announced plans to embark on a fall time tour to celebrate their “China” anniversary.
The upcoming trek will find the group performing at venues across the United States throughout October and November. The tour will include stops in Dallas, Louisville, Pittsburgh, New Haven, Niagara Fall, St. Louis, Salt Lake City, Milwaukee, Colorado Springs, and more.
The 26-stop excursion begins on Oct. 20 at the Rialto Theatre in Tucson and concludes a month later on Nov. 20 at the Majestic Ventura Theater in Ventura, California. Right before the tour kicks off, Atreyu will hit the stage at Las Vegas’ Las Rageous Festival.
According to a press release, the setlist for the newly-announced shows will be chosen by the fans, not the band.
“What better way to celebrate than with the reason we are all here…YOU. So here’s how it goes. 20 years. 20 songs. Chosen by YOU…the fans,” drummer Brandon Saller said.
Singer Alex Varkatzas mirrors Saller: “It’s been a long, rewarding road and we are not slowing down anytime soon. We would like the help of our friends and supporters in picking the set they will see on this upcoming coming run with Whitechapel. We owe so much to the wonderful people who support and connect with us. We are very excited for these shows.”
Whitechapel, He Is Legend, Tempting Fate, and Santa Cruz will open for Atreyu throughout the tour.
More information about the trek, including how to select your favorite tunes will be available at a later date.
Tickets for the upcoming show go on sale this Friday, Aug. 23, at 10 a.m. local time.
