Next year you might get to spend the night with the Donnas ... as long as you don't mind if OK Go are there too.
The bands will embark on a co-headlining tour beginning January 25 in Los Angeles, according to an Atlantic Records spokesperson. The itinerary takes the Bay Area's brassy lassies and the Chicago pop-rockers across the country, winding up on the East Coast in early February and returning to the Golden State to conclude the trek February 26 in San Francisco.
This tour marks the second time the Donnas have made face time with fans in support of their fifth album, Spend the Night. The first coincided with the album's October release (see "Sexy Donnas Tease Audience, But It's An Amp That Explodes"). The follow-up to last year's The Donnas Turn 21 has been enjoying a sales surge of late, perhaps due to radio and video exposure of its first single, "Take It Off."
Since introducing their single "Get Over It" to millions of football fanatics via "Madden 2002" in August, OK Go have seen their fanbase grow steadily too. It's poised to swell even more when "Get Over It" likely appears at top 40 radio in January, a move that has delayed the release of a second single.
