Alternative rock band The All-American Rejects is scheduled to perform a Sept. 14 concert at the University of Maine as part of a seven-week national co-headlining tour with Boys Like Girls, according to their website.
Known for hit songs like “Move Along,” “It Ends Tonight” and “Dirty Little Secret,” The All-American Rejects are currently promoting their most recent album, “Kids in the Street,” released on March 26, 2012. The band has sold over 4 million albums and 16 million singles worldwide.
Boys Like Girls achieved national success with their first two albums, “Boys Like Girls” and “Love Drunk,” which charted at No. 55 and 8, respectively. They are touring in support of their new EP, “Crazy World,” which prefaces a full-length album of the same name scheduled for a fall 2012 release.
Both bands will be supported by The Ready Set, whose first single, 2010′s “Love Like Woe,” reached No. 27 in the US and achieved platinum certification.
The UMaine performance concert is the second scheduled performance of the tour, coming the day after a Sept. 13 show in New Hampshire.
“We’re beyond stoked to be touring the US again this fall,” said The All American Rejects lead guitarist Nick Wheeler on the band’s website. “It’ll be great being out with Boys Like Girls. We haven’t toured with those dudes since 2006, so it should be a fun and memorable reunion for everyone!”
The concert will take place at the Field House and doors will open at 7 p.m. Tickets are being sold through Eventbrite.com and are priced at $20 for UMaine students and $35 for the general public. More information is available on the Facebook event page.CORRECTION:
