In November 2019, AJR announced the Neotheater World Tour part II, the tour was scheduled to run from early May through late June of 2020. Then on February 14, 2020, long before one tour began, the group announced another tour that was set to begin in mid-July and run through the end of August. This tour was titled the Everything Everywhere Tour, the group was going to be joined by Hobo Johnson and The Lovemakers, along with ASHE.

Neither of those tours happened due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Initially, they were postponed, but later they were ultimately canceled, not to be rescheduled.

Leading up to the release of their fourth album (OK Orchestra) AJR had already been teasing a return to playing live music. Last weekend, the group revealed dates by posting a super-sized word search puzzle for fans to find the U.S. cities they would be visiting.

Officially the OK Orchestra Tour will commence on April 28, 2022. Fans were quick to notice four of the 32 dates were blurred out on the poster, these are likely music festival dates that have yet to announce their lineups.

The animated teaser features the group preparing to perform in front of thousands and imagines a world where it is safe to gather once again without masks and the fear of catching or spreading Covid-19. It certainly is a lovely thought, isn’t it?

As of now, it is unsure what, if any restrictions the trio will put in place to keep their fans safe while attending their illustrious concerts. In a recent interview, the group played around with the idea all guests at their shows must be vaccinated, which gives music fans just another added incentive of rolling up their sleeves for a poke.

IHeart Radio hearts AJR

Last year, AJR released their Billboard hit “Bang!” in February, the popularity and success of the song carried the group throughout the entire pandemic. It has continued to thrust the group into the spotlight, as the track helped the trio earn not one but two IHeartRadio award nominations.

The first is for Alternative rock song of the year (for “Bang!”) the second is Alternative rock artist of the year. These are the group’s second and third IheartRadio award nominations, their first came in 2019.
