Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson Team Up for Honda Civic Tour
The tour kicks off Aug. 1 in St. Louis and runs through Oct. 5.
NEW YORK -- Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson will team up for the late summer/early fall Honda Civic Tour, it was announced Monday. Promoted by Live Nation, the 2013 Honda Civic Tour kicks off on Aug. 1 in St. Louis and runs through Oct. 5.
Maroon 5 is billed as the headlining act on this year's run, with American Idol season one winner Clarkson serving as a "special guest." Rozzi Crane, Tony Lucca and PJ Morton will each be opening for the pop superstars on select dates.
Both Maroon 5 and Clarkson were highly active on the Hot 100 in 2012: the pop-rock quintet's fourth studio album, Overexposed, included the top five smashes "Payphone" and "One More Night," while Clarkson's "Stronger" singles "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" and "Dark Side" were followed late last year by "Catch My Breath," from her Greatest Hits: Chapter One compilation. Last month, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine returned to The Voice as a coach, while Clarkson announced a new Greatest Hits single, "People Like Us."
The 2013 Honda Civic Tour is the 12th iteration of the annual trek, which was headlined by Linkin Park and Incubus in 2012. General tickets will go on sale Saturday.
