BIG NIGHT OUT 2013
The first annual Big Night Out Tour features a strong lineup of musically diverse and established bands who combined have sold billions of records, topped the charts, invaded the airwaves and have racked up more road miles then one can count. This nationwide trek is set to launch July 5th and unites Fuel, Hoobastank, and Alien Ant Farm.
Headlining the tour is Fuel, who has sold over 3.5 million albums in the U.S. and scored a trio of top 5 singles since they burst onto the scene with their 1998 full-length debut Sunburn which contained the massive song “Shimmer,” later they released 2000’s Something Like Human, which featured the hit singles “Innocent” and “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)” and achieved double platinum status. Lead singer Brett Scallions touts to us here at Dr2 that “There are so many great songs between the bands. Every night of the tour will be hit after hit. I can't wait!”
Hoobastank is eager to take the songs from their latest album Fight or Flight on the road, the new album marks the beginning of what promises to be a vital new chapter for the versatile L.A. band. “We are super excited about the Big Night Out Tour this summer. We’ve known all these bands for years and it’ll be a great reunion. It’s basically a traveling summer camp for adults but with no counselors”, explains Hoobastank’s Dan Estrin. This musically and emotionally intense work is Hoobastank’s initial release on Open E Entertainment (EMI) following a productive decade during which they ruled the modern rock charts, their first self-titled album garnered two hit songs, Crawling In The Dark and Running Away that both charted in the top 5 on the modern rock chart and helped the album go platinum. On their follow up album The Reason the songs Out Of Control and Same Direction charted in the top 10 and the title track The Reason crossed over on multi-formats and held the #1 chart slot helping to sell over 10 million albums. The band has been nominated for multiple Grammy and MTV Awards.
Since the formation of Alien Ant Farm in 1995, the quartet has enjoyed worldwide success. “This tour is going to be a blast. We have toured with all of these bands in the past, and together it should be a great party. Come out, and we promise to Grand Slam It like we've always done” guarantees Dryden Mitchell of Alien Ant Farm. Over the course of their four studio albums, cumulative sales surpass five million units, two Grammy nominations, 3 Billboard Music Award nominations and 4 top 10 singles. The band is currently working on a new album titled Always and Forever.
