Switchfoot Plots North American Tour

By | January 4, 2007 at 3:39 PM

Switchfoot’s new Columbia album “Oh! Gravity” is pulling the band onto the road for an extensive North American tour in February and March. Labelmate Copeland will open.

The trek begins Feb. 14 at the House of Blues in Anaheim, Calif., and wraps March 31 in the quintet’s San Diego homebase. Fans might even expect a concert after the concert in some instances.

“I often find that after I get off stage I still have more music left in me. Hanging out with our friends in Nickel Creek in Chicago taught me what to do with the leftover music,” Switchfoot frontman Jon Foreman wrote in his Billboard tour diary in November. “You play somewhere else in town after the show. So we’ve been trying to find places to play after our shows, (usually a bar or a coffee shop within walking distance) where we can bring in an acoustic guitar and get all the music out that might have been left over from the show.”

“Oh! Gravity” entered The Billboard 200 yesterday (Jan. 3) at No. 18 with first-week sales of 63,000 units.
