The annual All-Stars tour announced Wednesday it’s returning to Alamo City Music Hall (formerly Backstage Live). But this year’s version comes with two extra San Antonio twists: the tour will kick off here Fri. July 17, and it will be headlined by hometown band Upon A Burning Body.
UABB, coming off Sunday’s performance at the third annual River City Rockfest at the AT&T Center, will be joined on the tour by Dance Gavin Dance, A Skylit Drive, IWrestledABearOnce, Within the Ruins, Oceano, Dayshell, Come The Dawn, Chasing Safety and Conquer Divide — though Dayshell is slated to skip the show here. The concert package for ages 12 and over will also include music from I The Mighty, Hail the Sun, Too Close to Touch and Inamorata. VIP tickets go on sale Friday with general public sales commencing at 2 p.m. Monday for $20 here.
If you miss the San Antonio show or want a second opportunity to see the tour in the area, it will also be at Empire Control Room & Garage (606 E. 7th St.) in Austin on Sat. Aug. 15. The trek ends the following night in Houston.
Complete dates can be found below.
