After a banner year filled with hit singles and sold-out shows, overnight success story Owl City has confirmed fresh dates for a spring 2010 headlining tour.
Led by Adam Young, the one-man band will fill out its ranks with touring musicians for its latest run of dates. The spring tour is booked from March 30 at the Knitting Factory in Boise, ID, through May 2 at Eagle Ballroom in Milwaukee, WI.
Other stops along the way are inked for April 3 at the Roseland Theater in Portland, OR; April 9 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, CA; April 19 at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, TN; April 24 at Terminal 5 in New York, NY; and April 30 at Riviera Theatre in Chicago, IL.
Presales for the spring tour began today, December 18, with details on how to access the presale available through Owl City’s official MySpace page. The first public onsales will follow on January 8. Lights and Paper Routes will provide support throughout the tour.
“I just wanted to say thank you so very much for your support throughout 2009. It’s been a whirlwind of a year, and I can’t imagine having done it without you,” Young said in a video announcing his new tour plans. “It was incredible to play for so many people across the globe this year, and I couldn’t be more excited for 2010. So off we go!”
The spring tour will closely follow Owl City’s winter 2010 tour, which also include support from Lights, as well as Deas Vail. The largely sold-out trek begins January 21 at the Beaumont Club in Kansas City, MO, and wraps February 10 at Revolution Music Room in Little Rock, AR.
Several shows on the calendar have changed venues due to demand since the tour was first reported on TicketNews. A January 27 concert moved to Madison Theatre in Covington, KY; a January 28 show upgraded to Lifestyle Communities Pavilion in Columbus, OH; a January 29 event switched to Rams Head Live in Baltimore, MD; and a February 3 concert transferred to The Ritz Ybor in Tampa, FL.
Owl City was also on tour this past fall for a round of October concert dates. Most of those performances also sold out as Young his compadres rode high on the success of the single “Fireflies,” off the 2009 album “Ocean Eyes.”
