Something Corporate Announce When We Were Young Sideshow

When We Were Young is fast approaching once again. Following the success of last year’s festival, the biggest and best of alternative music are making their way to the Las Vegas strip for another nostalgia-filled spree of good times. Alongside Green Day and blink-182, the likes of Good Charlotte, The Offspring, Sum 41, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Simple Plan and Yellowcard will also be joining the party. And one band on the line-up had also announced a special sideshow, which will serve as their first headline gig in 20 years.

It’s the iconic Something Corporate, who have reunited especially for the festival. The band played a surprise 5-song set at vocalist Andrew McMahon’s 40th birthday celebrations last year, but before that, it had been six years since they hit the stage together. But with such a special occasion afoot, they are making the most of it and taking over the House Of Blues on October 20.

Andrew McMahon had this to say about the reunion:

“When we got back together for my birthday show, everything just clicked and we knew it was time. “We’re all so excited to play these songs again and to share a stage together. I think it’s going to be a cathartic weekend for all of us.”

There will be a When We Were Young pre-sale on Wednesday (August 16), a venue pre-sale on Thursday (August 17) and then general sale tickets available on Friday (August 18).

Something Corporate released three albums and two EPs in their career. They also shared a Greatest Hits compilation in 2010 as well. You can get in the mood with their all-time classic “Punk Rock Princess” below:
