From Simple Plan: “We are super excited to finally come back and play shows in the US after all these years. It’s been way too long since our last American tour and we couldn’t be more pumped to play all these amazing cities and venues, hang out with all our fans and share the stage with Hit The Lights and Story Untold. We look forward to seeing you all at the shows! It’s gonna be a blast!”
Currently traveling on an acoustic promo tour of US radio stations, Simple Plan will be among the artists performing at Mix 105.1’s Acoustic Summer, taking place at Orlando, FL’s House of Blues on Thursday, June 23rd. A portion of each ticket sold will be forwarded to the One Orlando Fund, established by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer in the wake of last week’s Pulse nightclub shooting. One Orlando provides help and support to nonprofits supporting the victims and families, the LGBTQ, Hispanic, faith and other affected communities, the underlying causes of this tragic event, and other related needs. Tickets are on sale now. For more information, please visit www.oneorlando.org.

The band’s upcoming summer schedule is equally hectic, highlighted by an array of headline shows and festival performances in both Mexico and Canada.
