Nate Ruess Reveals Fall Tour Dates
Last week, erstwhile Fun. frontman Nate Ruess officially emerged as a solo artist with the release of Grand Romantic. Now, the singer-songwriter has announced a North American tour in support of his debut.
Ruess’ summer dates kick off today (June 22) in Toronto and he'll hit up several festivals, including Outside Lands in San Francisco, Boston Calling and Austin City Limits. The fall tour will begin in Indianapolis on Sept. 23 and feature dates scattered through the end of November.
The tour pre-sale launches this Wednesday and the regular sale will open up to the public on Friday at noon ET. You can grab tickets on Ruess’ website.
Ruess recently visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform Grand Romantic’s lead single, “Nothing Without Love,” which you can watch here. The Fun. singer also has upcoming performances scheduled for Jimmy Kimmel Live! on June 25 and Late Night With Seth Meyers on July 13.
Grand Romantic follows Fun.’s 2012 Grammy-winning sophomore effort, Some Nights. Earlier this year, the indie-pop trio posted a Facebook message assuring fans they were “not breaking up” but don’t have any definite plans to record a follow-up. Since then, Ruess has branched out with his brand-new LP, while bandmate Jack Antonoff has been focused on his own solo work under his Bleachers moniker.
