Barenaked Ladies: ‘Last Summer on Earth’ tour to return in June

Jan. 17 (UPI) — Rock band Barenaked Ladies is reviving its Last Summer on Earth tour in 2020.

The group shared plans Friday on Twitter for a new iteration of tour featuring the Gin Blossoms and Toad and the Wet Sprocket.

“BNL’s Last Summer On Earth returns in 2020!! Joining BNL are good friends @ginblossoms and @ToadWetSprocket,” the post reads.

The tour begins June 3 in St. Augustine, Fla., and ends July 23 in the band’s hometown of Toronto, Ontario. Tickets go on sale Jan. 24, with pre-sale tickets available via the band’s Barenaked Bytes app Jan. 21 at 10 a.m. local time.

2020 marks Barenaked Ladies’ sixth annual Last Summer on Earth tour. Singer-guitarist Ed Robertson told Billboard the Gin Blossoms and Toad the Wet Sprocket have long been on the band’s radar for the tour.

“We’re really looking for a full night of artists that touch a lot of moments in people’s lives and span many decades, and both of these bands do that,” the musician said.

“It’s a rock-solid tour where people come early and want to see all three bands. It feels good as an artist going out with a package like that,” he added.

Barenaked Ladies released its 12th studio album, Fake Nudes, in 2017, and is working on a new album.
