On April 3rd, Arizona “Emo-Group” and rock band, The Maine, kicked off their first and last headlining tour of 2018 with a show in San Luis Obispo, California. This tour follows the release of their 2017 album, “Lovely Little Lonely,” as well as two previous headlining tours, including their “Modern Nostalgia” Tour last fall which showcased both “Lovely Little Lonely” and their 2015 album, “American Candy,” in their entirety.
The “Fry Your Brain” Tour is designed to reach cities that the band doesn’t typically play in, and the locations were determined after fans voiced their opinions of what cities should be included. After careful consideration, The Maine revealed the tour during their “8123 Day” event on January 21st and announced that bands The Wrecks and fellow 8123-friends The Technicolors would be opening during this tour. The Maine’s setlist includes songs from all six of their albums, as well as a different song every night that is voted on by the fans. The next few cities on this tour include Portland, OR on April 5th, Seattle, WA on April 6th, Spokane, WA on April 7th, and Vancouver, BC on April 8th.
