Having been around since 1996, they ain't backing down anytime soon. Book your tickets now!
Formed in 1996, American rock band O.A.R. began a revolution in the indie scene. Following a successful trek with The Goo Goo Dolls over the past year, they're heading back to the road. Releasing a surprise cover of Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down", they surely aren't backing down anytime soon. This summer, they're set to perform in 38 shows across the U.S.
At the Summer Tour 24, they'll be joined by special guest Fitz and The Tantrums on their roster of tour dates. Nope, this isn't all in just a dream... "It’s time for us to get out there and play a full set, jam out, and have another best summer of our lives," lead vocalist Marc Roberge shared in a statement. "We can’t wait to hang this summer with our friends Fitz and the Tantrums, Ripe and DJ Logic!"
In its early days, O.A.R.'s revolution began through word-of-mouth spending little to no attention to advertising or marketing. It's all organic baby! Indeed, their music spoke for itself. By 2005, they found their big break, gaining a significant following with rave reviews and acclaim for their fifth LP "Stories of a Stranger". The record served their hit singles "Love and Memories", "Heard the World", and "Lay Down" which remain crowd favorites to this day. The following year, they marked a massive milestone in their career, a sold-out Madison Square Garden show, reviewed by The New York Times.
In this day and age, the revolution goes on. Last 2022, the band dropped its tenth studio album, "The Arcade". It's a fine collection of tracks that share new energies and influences, a welcome change among their fans.
"It's stocked with truly awesome songs that will surely translate to energetic live performances we are going to make the most of at our concerts for years to come," Gershman shared with The Aquarian.
"Like O.A.R. itself, the songs are a melding of multiple imaginations, games in the arcade, each one having it's own story, lights, and sounds, but all under the same roof," Roberge shared, via Grateful Web.
In celebration of life's ups and downs, O.A.R. remains dedicated to sharing the power that music holds in everyone's heart. This summer, you're set for a night that'll rock it all out through their biggest hits, crowd favorites, and new anthems. Portions of the tour's proceeds will be donated to the band's very own nonprofit, Heard The World Fund. They support causes for youth education and communities in need.
