The fifth edition of the PROJEKT REVOLUTION tour will kick off on July 16th at the Tweeter Center outside Boston and wrap up on August 24 in Houston. This year's tour will feature Linkin Park, of course, along with Chris Cornell (who will not be performing with Timbaland), The Bravery and Ashes Divide on the main stage. The second stage will host Atreyu, 10 Years, Hawthorne Heights, Armor For Sleep and the Street Drum Corps.
The band and concert promoter Live Nation will forgo charging fans the typical $8-10 service charge per ticket on all tickets purchased through the band's fan-club, lpunderground.com, or livenation.com, for a limited time tomorrow (April 4). Which is very gracious of them.
Tickets for most of the tour go on sale April 11.
Trent Reznor will indeed be leaving his home internet enclave this summer for a Nine Inch Nails North American tour. He writes on his website, "Confirming a very poorly kept secret, the band has been reformed (details coming!) and we are about to embark on an extensive tour."
The first set of dates are after the jump. Presumably, a second set of dates are to be announced, that will also include the closing night of Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 3rd.
The Jonas Brothers, already in the middle of one tour, have ironed out their plans for another tour this summer, and the dates were just announced.
Their current trek wraps up this Saturday in sorta-hometown, East Rutherford, New Jersey (which morphs into "New York" when it's football season), and maybe they just couldn't wait to get the word out.
New dates on the "Burning Up" summer tour kick off on the 4th of July, which is patriotic and all except that it starts in Toronto. Fan club members get a pre-sale on the shows on March 25th.

Soulja Boy is going on tour in about three weeks, and he'll be rocking the stage with your favorite lip-gloss popper, Lil' Mama. They're calling it the "21 & Under Tour," because, you know, they're both under 21. CUTE, RIGHT??
Anyways, someone needs to sponsor a parents' waiting area for those early-teens who don't need their parents trying to do that "Crank Dat" dance while singing they're going to "Supaman" a you-know-what. FOR REALS.
