Portugal. the Man announces short fall tour

Portugal. the Man’s tour schedule is already packed with stops around the world, but apparently those previously announced dates weren’t enough. On Monday (July 24), the Portland-founded band announced plans to hit the North American roads in the fall. The group’s upcoming fall tour will kick off on October 2 at the Castle Theatre in Bloomington, Illinois and wrap up less than a month later on Oct. 29 with an appearance at the Suwanee Hulaween 2017 music festival in Live Oak, Florida.

Lido, Maybird, and Cut Copy will open for Portugal. the Man throughout the tour with the exception of their Mexican tour stops, their music festival appearances, and a couple of random stops along the way. Tickets for the October tour dates will go on sale beginning this Friday, July 28. For more information about the tour, head on over to Portugal. the Man’s website here.

Portugal. the Man’s lengthy tour schedule is in support of the group’s recently released record, WOODSTOCK. WOODSTOCK was released back in June and reached the number 32 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, the number seven spot on Billboard‘s Top Rock Albums chart, and the number five spot on Billboard‘s Top Alternative Albums.

As for the band’s infectious lead single, “Feel it Still,” the song has stealthy made its way up the Hot Adult Contemporary chart as well as the Top 40 charts.

For now, Portugal. the Man’s newly added fall tour dates can be seen below.

Snoopy Flies High in New ‘Peanuts’ Trailer

image

It’s been over a month since Fox Entertainment and Blue Sky Studios released a trailer for the upcoming 3D animation Peanuts Movie, and now we have a new trailer for the film set to be released around Thanksgiving time.

In the new trailer, which can be seen below, we see someone tinkering away at Snoopy’s house which sounds a lot like Woodstock hard at work. Snoopy is on his way to his doghouse when all of a sudden, he hears a plane fly overhead. He realizes who it is and starts sneaking his way to his doghouse, first behind a tree and then behind a snowman.

In no time, he’s in the doghouse, changes into his alter ego the World War I Flying Ace and is headed for the skies leaving behind a very upset Woodstock. Snoopy, or should be say the Flying Ace, heads into the sky to meet up with his nemesis the Red Baron.

Watch it all go down here.

As of now, there has been no indication on what the story line might be for this Peanuts film, though we would like to assume Snoopy’s Flying Ace and the Red Baron will play some kind of big role since this will be the second trailer that the Flying Ace is featured in.

Peanuts will hit theaters on Nov. 6.

Watch the New ‘Peanuts Movie’ Trailer

The holidays are right around the corner and considering how most families spend their time watching Peanuts reruns, it’s kind of genius that the people behind the upcoming Peanuts Movie would release a new trailer for the film at this time.

Today, Blue Sky Studios shared another trailer for the CGI-version of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang titled The Peanuts Movie. Fitting with the holiday theme, the new trailer is set during Christmastime as is evident with Woodstock and his family (all dressed with Santa hats, mind you) decorating Snoopy’s home with Christmas decorations including lights, a wreath, candy canes, snowflakes and much more.

Check out the almost two minute-long teaser for the upcoming film due out in 2015.

In a coincidence, which we are sure was not done by accident, the Peanuts gang will be celebrating the 65th anniversary of the comic strip’s launch in 2015. But that’s not all for the gang;  A Charlie Brown Christmas, the Christmastime staple will be turning 50 in 2015. As for the film, the last we heard it would be released on Nov. 6, 2015, but now going by the teaser, it appear a December 2015 release date might be in its future.
