(ATLANTIC CITY, NJ) -- Everclear has announced the return of their Summerland Tour in 2021, featuring fellow noted rock acts Living Colour, Hoobastank & Wheatus. Kicking off this July, the tour comes to the Orange Loop Arena in Atlantic City on Saturday, July 3rd. It will make its way through cities such as Houston, Cincinnati and Fort Wayne, and will eventually extend through September and early October as COVID mandates are lifted and more dates are added.
“After personally fighting Covid—19 for two months and managing the lingering symptoms, I’m so grateful that the numbers are going down, the vaccines are going up, and that we’re getting the chance to tour the U.S. again. I couldn’t be more proud of this year’s lineup of legendary alternative bands,” says Everclear frontman and Summerland Tour founder, Art Alexakis. “Living Colour, Hoobastank, and Wheatus have always been personal favorites of mine and I am so excited to share the stage with them this summer. I speak for the whole tour when I say we’re absolutely thrilled and grateful to get back out on the road and perform live again for our fans, friends, and family.”
On a similar note, the members of Hoobastank say, “After the tough and unprecedented year that everyone has gone through, we couldn’t be more excited to get out on the road again to play some live shows. It’s been way too long and we’re so eager and ready to see everyone’s faces once again. Throw in the fact it’s with some great bands that we have been big fans of for years and it makes it all the more special.”
Likewise, Wheatus frontman, Brendan Brown, encourages fans to get vaccinated, stating, "If dreams come true this would be it for us, getting back out on tour, safely, with artists we've looked up to for decades...Everyone, please get your vaccinations so we can all get our summer back, together.”
