Keeping its promise for a 2010 reunion tour, Something Corporate has charted a one-month jaunt for late summer. The 19-date itinerary will keep the pop-punk band on the road from an August 2 show at The Cabooze in Minneapolis, MN, through an August 28 event at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, CA.
The largely U.S.-based routing includes a two-night stand for August 10-11 at 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. Other gigs are lined up for August 13 at Roseland Ballroom in New York, NY; August 18 at the House of Blues in Dallas, TX; and August 24 at Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, CA. A single Canadian concert is booked for Augsut 7 at Kool Haus in Toronto, ON.
Public ticket sales began over the May 21-23 weekend. According to current listings on Ticketmaster.com, ticket face values have been marked around $35 in most markets on the tour. A few cities, like Detroit and Milwaukee, have priced select tickets around the $25 mark, while others, like Boston and Orlando, will see some priced upwards of $40 or $50.
Formed in 2000, Something Corporate released three full-length records before entering a hiatus at the end of 2004. The band’s principal songwriter Andrew McMahon began work on a new solo project, Jack’s Mannequin, but never discounted the possibility of a reunion with his old SoCo crew.
“I think for all of us it just got to the point where we were like, ‘Let’s just go be our own people for a minute,’ not out of a desire to leave the band or break up Something Corporate — quite the opposite,” McMahon said during a 2005 interview with Concert Pipeline, adding, “Let’s reconnect with all the things that spawned the band in the first place.”
The band accomplished that reconnection by the end of 2009, when they announced initial plans to regroup in the coming year. Something Corporate then reemerged with three performances at Bamboozle’s regional music festivals in Anaheim, CA (March 28); East Rutherford, NJ (May 1); and Chicago, IL (May 15).
“The beauty of this reunion is that we waited until we were ready,” McMahon said in a recent statement on the band’s official Web site. “There is such a good vibe going between all of us and getting to play these songs again has been a true joy.”
McMahon continued in his statement, “The festival dates have been a rush, but I think we’re all fired up to get back into the clubs and theatres — where we really cut our teeth for the first time.”
