The Last Summer On Earth Tour BARENAKED LADIES * BEN FOLDS FIVE * GUSTER Barenaked Ladies team with Ben Folds Five and Guster for the 2013 "Last Summer On Earth Tour," which will visit the Santa Barbara Bowl on Saturday, June 22nd. Tickets go on sale on Saturday, March 23rd at Noon. Rolling Stone called it "one of the ten hottest summer package tours of 2012" and Entertainment Weekly spotlighted it on their "2012 Summer Must List." We're talking, of course, about the Barenaked Ladies' uber-successful "Last Summer On Earth," a rollicking roadshow that tore through more than 30 arenas and amphitheaters during its near-sold-out run. Back by popular demand, this year's lineup sees the multi-platinum-selling Ladies joined by Ben Folds Five and Guster for a hot-ticket-tour. As an added bonus, those who purchase tickets for "The Last Summer On Earth" will receive a voucher for a download of the Barenaked Ladies' much-anticipated new album to be released June 4th on Vanguard Records, featuring the single "Boomerang." Barenaked Ladies, Ben Folds and Ryan Miller from Guster shot a video announcing the tour, which Rolling Stone debuted this morning. Click to view. It'll be a busy summer for the Barenaked Ladies (guitarist/vocalist Ed Robertson, bassist/vocalist Jim Creeggan, keyboardist/vocalist Kevin Hearn and drummer/vocalist Tyler Stewart), who are celebrating their 25th anniversary with the release of a brand-new studio album (their twelfth) and their first for new label Vanguard Records. Over the course of the past twenty-three years, Barenaked Ladies have amassed an international fanbase. Their plethora of career highlights includes eight Juno Awards and multiple Grammy nominations, more than 14 million albums sold worldwide and a series of hit singles, including No. 1 hit "One Week," as well as "Pinch Me," "Brian Wilson," "If I Had $1,000,000" and many more, along with the theme song for the hit CBS television series, "The Big Bang Theory." Ben Folds Five is touring in support of The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind, the group's first album of new music in 13 years. The groundbreaking pop trio of pianist Ben Folds, bassist Robert Sledge and drummer Darren Jessee launched in Chapel Hill, North Carolina in '94 and released debut album Whatever And Ever Amen in '97. A slice of pure pop perfection, the album introduced the ballad "Brick," which broke the band commercially and sold more than two million copies worldwide. BF5 recorded its last album, '99's The Unauthorized Biography Of Reinhold Messner, which included the single "Army," before disbanding in 2000. In 2011, the original three members of Ben Folds Five came together to record three new studio tracks for The Best Imitation Of Myself: A Retrospective, a career-spanning anthology. Guster recently self-released Guster: Live Acoustic, a collection of live recordings from their 2012 acoustic tour. It's been eight years since Guster released a proper live album - 2004's Guster On Ice - and two years since their last studio album, Easy Wonderful. Guster began in a dorm room at Tufts University and has released six studio albums in the last two decades. Don't miss your chance to attend the Last Summer On Earth Tour with Barenaked Ladies, Ben Folds Five and Guster at the Santa Barbara Bowl on Saturday, June 22, 2013, plus special guest. Tickets range from $38.00 to $77.00, plus applicable service charges. Ticket limit is 8 tickets per person
