Jimmy Eat World Celebrates ‘Futures’ 10th Anniversary With Tour
Are you ready to feel old, Millennials of a certain age? Your favorite Arizona-based rock band, Jimmy Eat World, is celebrating the tenth anniversary of Futures, that album that gave you all the feels during your senior year of high school (or was that just me?). To commemorate this momentous occasion, they’ve lined up a special North American tour in which they’ll play the entire album from start to finish.
It kicks off in Ventura, CA at the Ventura Theatre on October 2, and then continues through Oakland, CA; Des Moines, IA; Bloomington, IL; Cincinnati, OH; Columbus, OH; Washington, DC; Port Chester, NY; and Providence, RI, among others. The tour will culminate in a show on October 22 at The Ritz in Raleigh, NC. Also on Jimmy Eat World’s fall schedule? Reissuing three of their best albums: Static Prevails (out August 19), Clarity (out September 2), and Futures (out September 30). All albums will be remastered and include bonus materials. They’re available for pre-order now, and tickets for the tour go on sale June 27.
Formed in Mesa, AZ in 1993, Jimmy Eat World has had a hell of a career for an emo/rock/pop-punk band. They’ve released eight studio albums, the latest being 2013’s Damage. Oh, and broke countless teenage hearts, only to mend them back again.
