The 27-city “Wet Hot All-American Summer Tour,” which is produced by Live Nation, kicks off at MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa, Florida, and includes stops in Boston, Philadelphia, Nashville, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Houston. The rock bands conclude their run at the Zoo Amphitheatre in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on Oct. 14.

Emo darlings Motion City Soundtrack, The Starting Line and The Get Up Kids will perform as supporting acts at select shows.

“We’ve been trying to get out on the road in a proper way for the last few years,” the All-American Rejects said in a statement. “We finally realized after playing ‘When We Were Young’ that the world was ready to pull out of their ‘guilty pleasure chest’ and celebrate the soundtrack of their youth. When New Found Glory, The Starting Line, Motion City Soundtrack and The Get Up Kids signed on, the feeling was, ‘This is a celebration of summers gone by.’ It’s time to embrace the cumulative joy of growing up.”

A presale for Citi cardmembers runs from April 4 at 10 a.m. local time through April 6 at 10 p.m. and additional presales will run throughout the week. The general onsale begins Friday, April 7, at 10 a.m. local time at

The All-American Rejects have sold nearly 319,000 tickets and grossed $7.10 million across 197 headline shows since 2002, according to Pollstar box office reports. The band played at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe, Arizona, last September and sold 2,136 tickets, which earned them $113,380.
