Young The Giant and Fitz and the Tantrums Announce North American Tour

The cross-country trek includes special homecoming show at the Forum in Los Angeles on August 10

February 21, 2019

Elektra recording groups Young The Giant and Fitz and the Tantrums have jointly announced plans for a massive, co-headline summer tour.   The two chart-topping bands – both with roots tracing back to Southern California – will kick off the extensive, cross-country trek at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO, on June 12, with dates continuing into August, including a special, homecoming show at The Forum in Los Angeles on August 10.  Support comes from indie-pop trio COIN (June-July) and indie-alt songstress Alice Merton (August). General on sale starts Friday, February 22. Full itinerary below. For more details, please visit www.YTGFITZ.com.

This week, Young The Giant has climbed to #1 on the Alternative radio chart with “Superposition,” the new single off of their latest full length release, “MIRROR MASTER.”  The track is also continuing its ascent on the Shazam Top 100, where it’s one of the chart’s top 10 rock songs, and likewise, quickly becoming a multi-format success, entering the top 10 at Triple A radio.  The band recently performed “Superposition” on NBC’s “Late Show with Seth Meyers” to celebrate the kick off of their own headlining North American tour.  The electrifying performance followed previous late night appearances on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

Fitz and the Tantrums are currently working on new music for 2019 with further details to be announced shortly.  The band’s most recent release – 2016’s acclaimed “FITZ AND THE TANTRUMS” – featured the RIAA-certified 2x-Platinum smash “HandClap” which enjoyed top 5 chart success at multi-format radio outlets nationwide.  Likewise, the song’s official companion video has amassed more than 75 MILLION views to date. “FITZ AND THE TANTRUMS” was the follow-up to the band’s breakout, major label debut, 2013’s “MORE THAN JUST A DREAM,” highlighted by two back-to-back multi-format hits in “The Walker” and “Out Of My League,” both of which reached #1 at Alternative Radio nationwide and certified Platinum by the RIAA.
