THE USED Announce Second Leg of 15 Year Anniversary Tour

THE USED Announce Second Leg of  15 Year Anniversary Tour

THE USEDAfter 31 sold out shows on their first run, The Used will be hitting the road again for a second leg of their fifteen-year anniversary tour. Due to high demand and the success of the initial tour,the band will once again be playing two shows per city, performing Self-Titled and In Love and Death in their entirety, plus more each evening. The second part of the tour will kick off on August 16th in Portland, OR and wrap on September 28th in Atlanta, GA.

Tickets and special Meet & Greet packages, which include an intimate meet & greet, photo op, early entry, copy of Live and Acoustic at the Palace, signed set list, tour laminate, tour t-shirt and tour poster, will be available for purchase this Friday, June 17th, here. A portion of all Meet & Greet packages sold will go to the Living The Dream Foundation, an organization that gives fans with terminal diseases the chance to have an All Access Dream Day with their favorite bands.

Back in April, The Used embarked on the first run of their fifteen-year anniversary tour, which sold out in 31 markets across the United States, including Seattle, Salt Lake City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles and more. Now the band is back and ready to celebrate their first two albums in cities like Portland, San Diego, St. Louis, Cincinnati and Atlanta.

This past spring, The Used released Live and Acoustic at The Palace, a live CD/DVD, which hit #11 on Billboard’s Current Albums chart with over 14,500 copies sold. The album was recorded at the band’s intimate unplugged storyteller performance, which took place at The Palace Theater in Los Angeles last March. Fans who were unable to attend the once in a lifetime performance now have a chance to watch the band perform in a way they have never performed before – with a 4-piece string quartet and harpist (arranged by Hiro Goto), a piano player, percussion and a 3-piece gospel choir. Fans can purchase Live and Acoustic at The Palace now.

Bert McCracken shared, “I think we really captured the night perfectly and listening back to the mixes it reminded me how music can allow us to be children once again and once you open yourself up to that emotion it’s like a virus, it’s contagious.” He continued, “Nearly every eye in the venue was weepy the night we played with the orchestra because these songs are so emotional and this recording is a truly special thing that I can’t wait for everyone to hear. It still gives me goose bumps.”

Since forming in Orem, Utah in 2001, The Used have released 6 albums and 2 EPs – The Used (2002), In Love and Death (2004), Lies for the Liars (2007), Shallow Believer EP (2008), Artwork (2009), Vulnerable (2012), The Ocean of the Sky EP (2013), and Imaginary Enemy (2013).

The Used’s latest LP Imaginary Enemy put the band’s political frustrations and commitment to social change at its forefront and has opened up the platform for conversation among fans and critics alike. The album climbed high on the Independent, Tastemaker Albums, Hard Rock, Alternative, Digital Albums and Top Rock charts. Fans can purchase Imaginary Enemy on iTunes.
