Howard Jones, OMD join Last Summer on Earth 2016 tour



Wait, shouldn’t the 2015 Last Summer on Earth tour have been the last? This is the most blatant case of false advertising since Lionel Hutz's suit against the movie The Neverending Story. In any case, it turns out that British electro-legends Howard Jones and OMD will be joining Barenaked Ladies for the 2016 version of the Last Summer on Earth Tour.

The tour starts June 3 in Minneapolis and wraps up July 24 in Los Angeles. Fans in Florida get one stop: July 2 at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. In a post on Facebook, Howard Jones said tickets will go on sale Feb. 5.

If you've never seen HoJo perform live, you're missing out. He's one of my favorite '80s acts still touring. I've missed out twice seeing OMD perform, so I'm really going to try to make a show somewhere on this year's circuit. And maybe I'll even stick around for Barenaked Ladies. (No promises.)
