Plus, it has been six years since a tour from the Rejects and who knows what the future brings, get in while you can!
“We started with a ‘swing swing’, then we were your ‘dirty little secret’, and then you thought ‘it would end tonight’ so we could ‘move along’, then we ‘gave you too much hell’ for denying the fact that we’re the band you listened to your entire lives whether you liked it or not,” lead singer Tyson Ritter said at the tour announcement, running through some of the band’s biggest hits. “Bring your kids this time… so they can be just like their parents. The Rejects are a band that have been trying to get out in a proper way for the last few years. We finally realized after playing When We Were Young that the world was ready to crawl out of their ‘guilty pleasure box’ and experience what had made them so happy,” Ritter continued. “This summer is about a celebration of a band that used to be the soundtrack of your life, but now you’re not ashamed to go out and see them. This is for our fans to embrace the cumulative joy of growing up.” The All-American Rejects were part of the When We Were Young Festival with headliners Paramore and My Chemical Romance, back in October 2022 and had three dates.
