Upcoming tour plans for All Time Low and Mae are just a couple of the headlines in the daily tour recap for August 20, as compiled by TicketNews.
For the latter part of 2009, All Time Low will be on the road and heading a four-band bill as they support the July release of “Nothing Personal.” Support is provided courtesy of We The Kings, Hey Monday and The Friday Night Boys on the 34-date Glamour Kills Tour.
Do-good rock crew Mae continues to promote its latest charity initiative on the road. The second installment of the “12 Songs, 12 Months, 1 Goal” project will be completed in the form of a four-song EP soon, and the band will tour the nation from September to November to support it. Meanwhile, the latest incarnation of the Misfits is also touring North America from September through December with performances booked in Mexico, as well as the usual U.S. and Canada shows.
Special updates are led today by comedy-rock duo Tenacious D, which has been called on to fill-in for the Beastie Boys’ headline set at the 2009 Outside Lands festival on August 30. Overseas, Finnish fans of Alice Cooper may have to travel further than expected to see the shock rocker perform after officials at Tampere Arena banned Cooper from taking the stage there due to the “suspicious values” of his music.
