Pop rock band Plain White T’s will keep the harmony going strong with a new block of shows scheduled for the United States and Canada. The Three Part Harmony Tour launches March 12 at the House of Blues in Cleveland, OH, and continues through May 9 with a students-only show at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN.

More than 40 concerts are booked for the spring jaunt, including additional closed admission shows at national colleges and universities, as well as a few supporting dates on singer-songwriter Jason Mraz’s upcoming tour.

Highlights of the outing are a March 16 show at Bogart’s in Cincinnati, OH, a March 28 concert at Roseland Theatre in Portland, OR, an April 7 gig at Antone’s in Austin, TX, an April 17 session at Blender Theatre in New York, NY, and a May 8 event at Metro in Chicago, IL. Shows booked for Canada include a March 21 concert at The Gateway in Calgary, AB, and a March 24 set at Richard’s on Richards in Vancouver, BC.

The Three Part Harmony Tour is being billed as “a show in three acts,” with Plain White T’s first set comprised of the band’s rock songs, followed by an acoustic set and a closing medley of fan favorites. Supporting duties for the tour will rotate among Vedera, Danger Radio, The Februarys and Single File.

“We wanted to present our music in way that we’ve never done before,” said lead singer Tom Higgenson in a statement. “Our longtime fans know us mostly for our rock songs, and our new fans know us mostly for our acoustic songs, so we wanted to bring everyone together and give all our fans a different way to experience our music live.”

Plain White T’s are touring in support of their fifth album, “Big Bad World,” released in September 2008. The group, which opened the fall 2008 Rock Band Live tour with Panic at the Disco and Dashboard Confessional, is best known for its 2007 hit single “Hey There Delilah.”
