The Get Up Kids extend 2019 tour itinerary

The Get Up Kids’ 2019 tour schedule just keeps on getting longer and longer.

On Monday (Sept. 9), the Missouri-founded band revealed a new set of tour dates for later this year.

The newly added gigs will find the band performing at venues across the United States in November and December.

The 22-stop outing will include shows in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Phoenix, Dallas, New Orleans, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, and more. The newly announced trek begins on Nov. 13 at the Oriental Theater in Denver and concludes on Dec. 15 at Loving Touch in Detroit.

Before hitting the road during the final months of the year, the act has a slew of previously announced shows on tap including their performance at his year’s Riot Fest Chicago.

The upcoming tour dates are in support of the group’s first new album in eight years, Problems. The album, their sixth full-length record, was released in May and yielded several singles including “Satellite,” “Waking Up Alone,” and “The Problem is Me.” Problems is official follow-up to 2011’s There Are Rules.

The newly added tour dates come several days after the band confirmed the departure of longtime keyboardist James Dewees. During the weekend, the act posted a straight-to-the-point message stating that the musician was no longer part of their current lineup.

“James Dewees is no longer a member of The Get Up Kids,” the tweet reads.

No further information was given about the departure while Dewees has yet to formally comment on the matter.

Avril Lavigne plots ‘Head Above Water’ fall tour

After being away from the touring circuit for the past five years, it looks like Avril Lavigne is ready to get back out there and rock the stage.

On Monday (June 24), the Canadian singer announced plans to embark on a short tour in the fall. Dubbed the Head Above Water tour, the excursion will find the musician performing at venues across the continent throughout September and October.

The 15-stop trek will include gigs in Portland, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Detroit, Chicago, New York, Boston, and more. The tour begins on Sept. 14 at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle and concludes a month later on Oct. 11 at the XCite Center at Parx Casino in Philadelphia.

One of the biggest surprises to come from the tour itinerary is the lack of Canadian stops. The tour features only one show in Canada on Oct. 6 at the Sony Centre for Performing Arts in Toronto.

Artist pre-sales begin this Tuesday, June 25, at 10 a.m. local time. General ticket sales begin this Friday, June 28, at 10 a.m. local time.

“Happy to announce the Head Above Water Tour bitches!!!” Lavigne tweeted alongside a video where she formally announced the forthcoming outing.

The tour is in support of Lavigne’s recently released record Head Above Water. The record, her sixth studio effort, was released in February. The 12-track album has produced four singles “Head Above Water,” “Tell Me It’s Over,” “I Fell in Love with the Devil,” and “Dumb Blonde” featuring Nicki Minaj.
