St. Augustine, FL (August 12, 2013) – The BARENAKED LADIES’ have announced their headlining fall tour dates.  The imagestour – with special guests Whitehorse – kicks off at the State Theatre in Minneapolis on October 9th and will stop at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Saturday, November 2nd.  A fan club only pre-sale will begin on Wednesday, August 14th followed by the public on sale Friday, August 16 at 10:00am.

 

Celebrating their 25th anniversary, the tour announcement comes on the heels of the Ladies’ having just wrapped up one of this summer’s hottest events – their ‘Last Summer on Earth Tour 2013’ with Ben Folds Five and Guster preceded by the release of their new album GRINNING STREAK, which debuted at #10 on the Billboard Top 200.  The band’s first Vanguard release marked their first top ten debut since 2003 and fourth top ten debut overall. The Huffington Post cited “…on the just-released “Grinning Streak,” BNL sound as fresh and focused as they did in their late-’90s heyday. A collection of infectious melodies, clever lyrics and hopeful sentiments, “Grinning Streak” brims with the kind of playful energy that’s always been the band’s best asset.” The album’s breakout success showcases the new single “Odds Are,” which shot to No. 2 on the iTunes Rock Songs Chart. The band recently performed the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. You can view the performance here and check out the lyric video here.
