Aussie up-and-comers The Veronicas haven’t headlined a U.S. tour in three years, but will return with a vengeance later this season. The twin sisters will begin their jaunt with a series of May “warm-up” concerts before launching their headlining Revenge Is Sweeter Tour in June.

Mainly comprised of radio station concerts, the spring warm-up begins April 29 at Arizona Stadium in Tucson, AZ, and ends May 17 at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA. Headlining dates kick off June 4 at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, RI, and close out July 18 at Elitch Gardens in Denver, CO.

In total, sisters Jessica and Lisa Origliasso will complete 40 concerts from coast to coast. Highlights of the main tour leg include a June 12 concert at the House of Blues in New Orleans, LA, a June 21 gig at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, CA, a July 1 show at Black Sheep in Colorado Springs, CO, and a July 11 performance at Metro/Smart Bar in Chicago, IL.

The Veronicas are touring in support of their sophomore album “Hook Me Up,” originally released in their native Australia in November 2007. The record has hit No. 107 on the Billboard 200 and peaked atop the Heatseekers chart. The first U.S. single “Untouched” is also climbing the charts, with top 20 positions on the Hot 100, Pop 100 and Hot Digital Songs lists.

This is the second U.S. headlining tour for The Veronicas. The duo made their stateside debut in early 2006, playing small clubs in nearly 30 cities across the nation. Ironically, one of the tour’s opening acts was American sibling trio Jonas Brothers. In a reversal of fortunes in summer 2008, The Veronicas returned the favor by supporting select dates of Jonas Brothers’ headlining Burning Up Tour.

The Veronicas have provided support on a number of U.S. tours over the years, including pop performer Ashlee Simpson in 2006 and Hanson’s Walk Around the World Tour in 2008.
