Owl City Announces 2013 North American Arena Tour with Maroon 5 and Neon Trees

By on October 23, 2012

Owl City announces a 2013 arena tour with Maroon 5 and Neon Trees.  The two month long trek kicks-off on February 13thin Columbus, OH at Schottenstein Center and will wrap on April 6th at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL, hitting several notable venues along the way including Los Angeles’ Staples Center and New York City’s Madison Square Garden.  The news of the 2013 tour comes as Owl City continues his The Midsummer Station World Tour overseas in Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.  
Owl City is fresh off the August 21st release of The Midsummer Station, his latest full-length, out now via Republic Records.  He first hit the road in July for a short sold-out promo tour of North America leading up to the new album’s release.  During this time, the album’s lead single, “Good Time” (featuring a duet with Carly Rae Jepsen), became a staple at the top of the radio and sales charts.  Since then, “Good Time” has been certified platinum and continues to hold strong in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, as well as Top 5 at Top 40 and Top 10 at Hot AC.  The week The Midsummer Station came out, Owl City was joined by Carly Rae Jepsen for a series of National TV performances of the single including appearances on America’s Got Talent, Today Show, Arthur Ashe Kids Day, Conan, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.  He hit the road on September 5th in Nashville for the first leg of The Midsummer Station World Tour, which took the band through North America before heading over to Europe to kick off the next leg with a show in Paris on October 18th.  Along the way, Owl City made a stop in NYC where the band performed a stripped down version of “Good Time” on Live with Kelly & Michael
With the announcement of the 2013 arena tour also comes news of the follow-up single to “Good Time.”  “Shooting Star” will usher the way for the next North American tour, and is going to radio in early 2013.  There’s a new video in the works to coincide with the new single and before closing out 2012 – you can catch Owl City at several holiday radio shows including the KISS-FM Jingle Ball in LA on December 3rd.  Presale for all shows with Maroon 5 will take place this week, and general on-sale for all shows is this Saturday, October 27th with the exception of Dallas and Jacksonville, which will be up for sale on November 2nd.  See below for all confirmed dates.
