Tickets for the show will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $25 and $35.
“I’ve always been a big fan of The All-American Rejects and couldn’t be more delighted to be sharing the stage with them this fall,” declared Boys Like Girls frontman Matin Johnson in a press release. “I think it’s going be a great time for both the fans and bands alike. Looking forward to a really great couple of months.”

Boston’s Boys Like Girls will be touring in support of their forthcoming album, Crazy World. The band’s third studio effort and follow-up to 2009’s Love Drunk, is expected to hit stores this fall. No official release date has been announced for the album. Fans looking for a taste of the new album can purchase the Crazy World EP exclusively through iTunes. The EP includes three songs from the LP and fans can hen purchase the full-length release at discounted rate. The lyric video for lead single “Be Your Everything” is streaming below.
“It’s a great transition from where the band was. We came from a wall of guitars, and the sound has evolved,” said Johnston of the single in a press release.”The only time I really express my feelings is when I’m writing music. That’s how it’s been since I was a little kid. This song is about the moment when it becomes okay to say, I love you.”
The All-American Rejects are touring in support of their new album, Kids In The Street. The band’s fourth studio effort and follow-up to 2008’s When the World Comes Down was released in March. Produced by Greg Wells (Mika, OneRepublic), the album features lead singles “Beekeeper’s Daughter”, “Kids in the Street” and “Walk Over Me”.
