On March 18, Jawbreaker will kick off the 25th anniversary tour of their seminal album Dear You.
Jawbreaker note, “The last two years don’t count.” The dates produced by Live Nation, start on the west coast with a show at Seattle’s Showbox SoDo and includes a stop at The Wiltern in Los Angeles and multiple night stands at The Fillmore in San Francisco, Chicago’s House Of Blues, and Irving Plaza in New York City, among other cities. Along the way Jawbreaker have invited Built to Spill, Descendents, Jawbox, Face to Face, Best Coast, Team Dresch, and the Linda Linda’s to support on select shows.
All dates listed below go on sale starting Friday, January 21 at 10am local time. Citi is the official card of the 25th Anniversary Dear You tour. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning Wednesday, January 19 at 10am ET until Thursday, January 20 at 10pm local time through the Citi Entertainment program.
More than 35 years after forming on the campus of New York University, Jawbreaker remains one of the most beloved and influential bands of the post-punk era. Vocalist/guitarist Blake Schwarzenbach, bassist Chris Bauermeister, and drummer Adam Pfahler carved a unique niche in the emo and alternative scenes with indie classics such as 1990’s Unfun, 1992’s Bivouac (which led to tour dates with Nirvana) and 1994’s 24 Hour Revenge Therapy, which was included in Pitchfork’s Top 100 Favorite Records Of The 1990s.
Rolling Stone list Dear You as No.4 in their “Top 40 Greatest Emo Albums of All Time” and have noted, “…their fingerprints are all over much of the rock that took over mainstream radio in the mid-2000s.”
