UNCASVILLE, CT (January 17, 2020) – Today, multi-platinum Rock band Barenaked Ladies announce their extensive Last Summer On Earth tour of North America in 2020. Gin Blossoms and Toad the Wet Sprocket will round out the incredible lineup and perform at Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, July 11th at 7:00pm. 

Tickets are $33.50 and go on sale Friday, January 24th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com. Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office beginning Saturday, January 25th at 10:00am, subject to availability.

Following their critically-acclaimed 2019 tour with Hootie & the Blowfish, Barenaked Ladies is ready to hit the road again and bring out all the fan favorites that have built them a long-lasting career and worldwide fanbase. The Toronto-based “cult fave” (Paste Magazine) —who have now sold over 15 million albums worldwide and earned multiple JUNO Awards and Grammy nominations— are also set to release new music in May of this year.

This will be the sixth edition of the tour, founded by the band in 2012 – the year that the Mayan calendar predicted would be the last, hence the “Last Summer On Earth.” “We know the Mayan Calendar was wrong about the end of the world,” adds Ed Robertson, “but could they have been THAT wrong?! C’mon out and Rock with us like it’s your Last Summer On Earth!”

ABOUT GIN BLOSSOMS

Formed in 1987 in the Arizona city of Tempe; Gin Blossoms’ blockbuster 1992 album New Miserable Experience spawned four Top 40 hit singles (“Hey Jealousy,” “Found Out About You,” “Until I Fall Away” and “Allison Road”) sold more than four million units, and established the band as one of the top Rock groups of that decade. More than two decades later, Gin Blossoms continue to tour performing fan favorites, while also releasing new music, building on their already extensive catalogue.

ABOUT TOAD THE WET SPROCKET

Celebrating over 30 years as a band, Toad the Wet Sprocket continue to make music and tour with the same spirit of unwavering independence that fans fell in love with on Billboard-charting hits like “Walk on the Ocean,” “All I Want,” “Something’s Always Wrong,” and “Fall Down.” The band share a special kind of musical chemistry that can only come from years of creating music with friends from high school.
