The Get Up Kids are working it this year, playing Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Europe in late summer and fall. But before the group departs North American shores for a mission of global conquest, the band has some U.S. headline dates to take care of.

The headlining action begins in Omaha, Neb., at The Waiting Room July 7.  Other destinations include Milwaukee at The Rave Eagles CLub July 9; St. Louis at The Firebird July 15 and Nashville at Exit / In July 17.

Early August finds The Get Up Kids Down Under, playing Brisbane (Aug. 5), Sydney (Aug. 6), Melbourne (Aug. 7), and Adelaide (Aug. 9) before returning to the States for two California shows – Los Angeles at The Satellite Aug. 13 and Pioneertown at Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace Aug. 14.

The Kids are touring in support of There Are Rules, which was released on the band’s own Quality Hill label in January.

A pre-sale for the newly announced summer dates begins today.  Check out
