Why is it that the 80s is the decade to get all the nostalgic attention? The 90s were a time of patent leather shoes, ripped denim before it became known as “deconstructed,” and some of those great classics that many of today’s generations grew up on — and who doesn’t want to relive all that? Now you can, for a little while anyway, by enjoying some of the 90s biggest musical acts that will be touring around the nation this summer.
The tour, appropriately named “The Summerland Tour 2012,” will take the Gin Blossoms, Sugar Ray, Everclear, Lit, and Marcy Playground around the States in what Everclear frontman, Art Alexakis, is calling a “huge summer party.” The tour will begin on June 28 in Saratoga, California at the Mountain Winery, and it will wrap up on August 4 in Duluth, Minnesota at the Bayfront Festival Park. There are many huge stops along the way including those in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, and Detroit, but none are set to be bigger than the performance given on July 4 at the Speaking Rock Entertainment Center in El Paso, Texas. This show will be one that’s free for fans to attend, an event sure to draw fans from all over the country!
Alexakis has also posted on Twitter just recently that the band will be putting out a new album in June, called “Welcome to the Drama Club.” That sounds hopeful for fans attending the show, and maybe they’ll be able to hear some new tunes, mixed in with the old!
