It’s no longer a dirty little secret: The All-American Rejects are returning to touring this summer after a 10-year hiatus.
The rock band, best known for early-aughts hits like “Gives You Hell” and “Move Along,” is embarking on the 27-date Wet Hot All-American Summer Tour, kicking off on Aug. 11 in Tampa, Fla. Produced by Live Nation, the tour features New Found Glory as its main openers, with Motion City Soundtrack, the Starting Line and the Get Up Kids also playing select dates.
“We’ve been trying to get out on the road in a proper way for the last few years. We finally realized after playing When We Were Young that the world was ready to pull out of their ‘guilty pleasure chest’ and celebrate the soundtrack of their youth,” the band said in a statement. “When New Found Glory, the Starting Line, Motion City Soundtrack and the Get Up Kids signed on, the feeling was ‘This is a celebration of summers gone by.’ It’s time to embrace the cumulative joy of growing up. First we got you to ‘Swing Swing,’ then we became your ‘Dirty Little Secret,’ and you thought ‘It Would End Tonight’ so we could ‘Move Along,’ then we ‘Gave You Hell’ for denying the fact that we’re the band you listened to your entire lives, whether you liked it or not.” – Variety
