Barenaked Ladies announce tour with Gin Blossoms and Toad the Wet Sprocket

Multi-platinum rock band Barenaked Ladies announced their extensive Last Summer On Earth tour of North America in 2020. Gin Blossoms and Toad the Wet Sprocket will round out the incredible lineup. Last Summer On Earth 2020 tour will include a stop in Cincinnati, OH at PNC Pavilion on Tuesday, July 21.

“We’re looking forward to getting back out on the Last Summer On Earth tour,” vocalist/guitarist Ed Robertson shares. “Having Gin Blossoms and Toad the Wet Sprocket out with us is going to be a blast. That’s a LOT of hits per night!”

Following their critically-acclaimed 2019 tour with Hootie & the Blowfish, Barenaked Ladies is ready to hit the road again and bring out all the fan favorites that have built them a long-lasting career and worldwide fanbase. The Toronto-based “cult fave” (Paste Magazine) —who have now sold over 15 million albums worldwide and earned multiple JUNO Awards and Grammy nominations— are also set to release new music in May of this year.

The tour will find Barenaked Ladies playing major venues all across North America, including stops at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, Red Rocks, SummerStage in New York City and more, with the tour finale at Toronto’s Budweiser Stage, with special guest Kim Mitchell also on the bill. These dates follow their string of shows in the spring throughout the UK, which will culminate with a sold-out show at London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall.

This will be the 6th edition of the tour, founded by the band in 2012 – the year that the Mayan calendar predicted would be the last, hence the “Last Summer On Earth”. Barenaked Ladies headline and bring some of their best friends and favorite bands along for a summer of good times, and of course, great music. Past acts include Cracker, Big Head Todd & the Monsters, Blues Traveler, Guster, Ben Folds Five, Violent Femmes, Colin Hay, OMD, Howard Jones, Better Than Ezra, and KT Tunstall.

“We know the Mayan Calendar was wrong about the end of the world,” adds Ed Robertson, “but could they have been THAT wrong?! C’mon out and rock with us like it’s your Last Summer On Earth!”

Tickets for the Cincinnati show will go on sale to the public beginning at 10am on Friday, January 24 at Ticketmaster.com and PNCPavilion.com. 

Each ticket purchased will include a digital download of Barenaked Ladies’ forthcoming album, which is due for release in May of 2020. VIP packages and album digital downloads may not be available in all venues.
