It seems like with each passing day and week, another prominent band announces a festival-like touring lineup.
On Monday, the full touring schedule and pre-sale tickets for Sublime with Rome has been announced. It was announced previously that Sublime with Rome was set to hit the road with touring mates Dirty Heads, Tribal Seeds and Bleeker.
The nationwide tour will total 29-dates, including stops at Mandalay Bay Beach in Las Vegas, Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Jones Beach Theater in New York, The Tabernacle in Atlanta, as well as big city tour dates in Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Charlotte, Miami, Seattle, Phoenix, Dallas and San Diego.
One select dates, the heavyweight lineup will also feature 311 and Matisyahu, as their summer touring schedule will intersect in both Austin and Dallas, Texas.
Sublime with Rome is touring in support of their most recent album release, Sirens (July 17, 2015), which peaked at #34 on the Billboard Top 200, #3 on the U.S. Rock Chart and #5 on the U.S. Independent Release Chart.
The current touring outfit performing under the name Sublime with Rome consists of lone original Sublime member, Eric Wilson (bass), Josh Freese (drums), known for his time with Nine Inch Nails, The Vandals and Devo, and Rome Ramirez (vocals/guitar).
There has been a substantial amount of Sublime fans that do not support the Sublime with Rome project, since the departure of original Sublime drummer, Bud Gaugh.
However, with only one-third of the original act, Sublime with Rome continues to tour and sell new albums with a good amount of success. Many of their shows, both in the United States and internationally are routinely sold-out.
Much like the Wailers with only Aston “Family Man” Barrett on bass, the fans love the timeless music that the band performs at live shows. No one should criticize a band for keeping the music alive for the next generation of music lovers.
