Megan & Liz have announced that they have teamed up with American Rag and Macy’s to launch a North American headlining tour. American Rag On Tour Presents Megan & Liz will be the first headlining tour for the pop music sensations who recently debuted their brand new single “Release You.” The tour kicks off on August 8th in Minneapolis, MN at The Triple Rocks Social Club.
The 26-date tour will take Megan & Liz to perform for fans in major cities in the United States and Canada including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Vancouver. Tickets are on sale now.
Megan & Liz just released their infectious new single, “Release You.” Billboard Magazine raved about the song saying “Few radio offerings this season will have a higher replay value than ‘Release You.’” MTV’s Buzzworthy blog says “Your new summer anthem has arrived,” while Idolator calls the single a “summer smash.” The song is the first single off their first full length album, Look What You Started, due for release later this summer.
Last year’s “Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star” winners, Megan & Liz performed at the 2012 Macy’s Glamorama fashion events in Minneapolis, Chicago, San Francisco and LA, as well as at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. With continued support from Macy’s, American Rag will be the official wardrobe partner for the upcoming tour. American Rag is a young, fashion-forward line of apparel and accessories. Inspired by classic rock and roll, the line blends vintage-inspired colors and prints with classic denim and the season’s trends. Additional performances at select Macy’s will also be announced.
“Megan and Liz couldn’t be a better representation of the American Rag brand,” says Nancy Slavin, SVP of Marketing for Macy’s Private Brands. “They really resonate with our American Rag customers, who have a passion for both music and fashion. Megan and Liz also have a tremendous following through social media and we’re excited to be able to introduce American Rag to their fans.
