Panic At The Disco will headline the eighth annual Honda Civic Tour (HCT) kicking off on April 10 in San Francisco at the Warfield Theatre. The full itinerary has not yet been released, but the tour is slated to conclude in Anaheim, CA at The Honda Center on June 14.
Over the past seven years, nearly 2 million fans have attended the HCT, and past headliners include The Black Eyed Peas, Blink-182, Everclear, Incubus, Good Charlotte and New Found Glory, Dashboard Confessional, Maroon 5, and most recently, Fall Out Boy.
“We’re taking advice from Fall Out Boy, who headlined the Honda Civic Tour last year, on how to make this year’s tour even better,” said Panic At The Disco’s lead singer Brendon Urie in a statement. “Those guys set the bar pretty high, but we’re really looking forward to hitting the road again and are definitely up for the challenge.”
New for this year, nonprofits Reverb (a leader in the “greening” of concert tours) and Global Inheritance (a champion of progressive causes with a tight connection to youth subcultures) have been selected by Panic At The Disco to be a part of the tour to operate fan-friendly interactive exhibits. Additionally, this collective will make a substantial contribution to a cause to be determined by the end of the tour.
For every Honda Civic Tour Panic At The Disco ticket purchased, $1 will go into a fund designated for non-profit tour partners Reverb and Global Inheritance.
