New York, New York – The Honda Civic Tour featuring Panic At The Disco is now on the road in support of their sophomore release, Pretty. Odd. (Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen), which debuted at #2 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 album chart and #1 on SoundScan’s Current Alternative Albums chart.
The 2008 Honda Civic Tour is notable for the expanded participation of Honda’s operations in Canada, where the Honda Civic has been the top-selling car for a decade (and where Pretty. Odd. debuted at #2). Canadian Honda Civic Tour dates include Montreal, May 13 at Metropolis; Toronto, May 14 at Sound Academy; and Vancouver, June 6 at PNE Forum.
Panic guitarist-songwriter Ryan Ross reflected on the tour’s launch: “The Civic Tour is a super-big deal for us and we’ve been looking forward to it for a while. Plus, the band’s totally excited to play the new songs for the fans. We know the energy at these shows is gonna be amazing. We can’t wait to get onstage.
Motion City Soundtrack, The Hush Sound and Phantom Planet — as well as
the Honda Civic Hybrid customized and autographed by Panic At The Disco — will serve as the tour’s supporting attractions.
