Bogart’s in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Of course, the tour is named after the Columbus, Ohio-based band’s latest album, 2014’s Little America.

“Current fans will relish this strong release, especially the epic ‘Leaving New York’ that adds strings to further ramp up the already heightened tension. And there is no denying the sheer melodic force of the lighter waving ballads that dominate this set and the band’s catalog,” American Songwriter wrote in its review of the LP.
