Piano-driven rock band The Fray will follow its successful overseas concert dates with a new U.S. tour leg this summer. The 32-date tour launches June 12 at Chastain Park Amphitheatre in Atlanta, GA, and continues through August 7 at Spokane Arena in Spokane, WA.
The eight-week trek includes a June 16 concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD, a June 21 event at Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA, a July 14 gig at Dodge Theatre in Phoenix, AZ, a July 25 show at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston, TX, and an August 4 performance at Rose Garden Arena in Portland, OR.
Two stops are penciled in for Canada, as well: June 23 at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto, ON, and August 5 at UBC Thunderbird Arena in Vancouver, BC. Jack’s Mannequin is scheduled to appear as a special guest on each night of the tour.
Individuals enrolled in the band’s official mailing list will receive unique codes on March 5 for a fan presale that begins March 6 at 10 a.m. (ET). The presale will run through March 10, though ticket availability is limited for each event. Fans who sign up for the e-mail list while the presale is in progress will automatically receive their access code.
The Fray is touring in support of its self-titled sophomore album. The long-awaited follow-up to 2005’s “How to Save a Life” was released February 3 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The record pushed about 179,000 copies in its first week of U.S. sales, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The rockers are about to begin a five-show run of Australia and New Zealand that was so popular during initial ticket sales that one gig was moved to a larger venue. The Fray completed a brief U.S. tour in early January.
