After wrapping separate spring tours, the Cranberries and Collective Soul will head out on the road together for six weeks of amphitheater dates starting on August 5 in Tampa, Florida.

The Cranberries will headline the upcoming "Loud and Clear Tour," and Collective Soul will open for the Irish band on all of the dates except for the August 9 concert slated for Atlanta.

"We are really excited to return to North America this summer," offered Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan in a statement announcing the shows. "This tour will give us the opportunity to reach out to more of our fans in cities we were not able to perform in during the current tour."

The Cranberries also plan to make tickets for the shows available through its official website (www.cranberries.com) before they go on sale to the general public via regular ticket outlets, a method the band employed for its current tour (see "The Cranberries Map Out U.S. Tour, Make Tickets Available Online").
