Barenaked Ladies Add U.S. Tour Dates

Following July 12 show in Toronto, band makes cross-country trek, ending August 26 in Michigan.

Fresh off a North American tour and heading into two weeks' worth of European dates, Barenaked Ladies have announced 28 more U.S. tour dates, following a July 12 show in Toronto.

The Canadian band is still touring in support of Maroon, which came out in September and featured the hit "Pinch Me". Earlier this month the group took home three Juno Awards — Canada's equivalent of the Grammys.

Scottish rock duo the Proclaimers — best known for their hit "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)," which was featured in the 1993 Johnny Depp movie "Benny & Joon" — will join the Ladies as opening act from August 6 until the end of the tour.

After seven years without a new album, the identical twins Craig and Charlie Reid will release Perseverence on May 22. There's no word yet on who will open the July 12-August 3 shows.

The tour, which will hit mostly outdoor venues, is scheduled to wind up with two dates at the Pine Knob Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan, on August 25 and 26.
