Concert announcements: BNL, Zac Brown Band

Posted March 12, 2012

Two upcoming shows you need to know about: 

The Barenaked Ladies, Blues Traveler, Big Head Todd & the Monsters and Cracker will play the Raleigh Amphitheater on July 12, concert promoter Live Nation announced Monday afternoon. 

The show is part of the "Last Summer on Earth" tour. 

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 23, through Live Nation and Ticketmaster. 

BNL vocalist/guitarist Ed Robertson had this to say about the tour's title.

"I'm a man of science, and therefore put zero stock in all of the disastrous predictions about the year 2012. But JUST IN CASE, I think everybody should come out and see one last great summer concert tour! It can't hurt, right? Here's hoping the Mayans just got tired of chiseling!" Robertson said in a press release.

Tickets for that show go on sale this Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation and Ticketmaster.
