Nate Ruess Kicks Off String of Fall Tour Dates Tonight

Fueled by RamenNate Ruess is in for a busy autumn. In addition to his previously announced headlining solo tour, the fun. frontman has a string of other gigs lined up in the coming months.

Starting tonight in Lincoln, Nebraska, he hits the road with Hozier for some supporting dates. He’ll open for Hozier on two other tour stops: September 14 in Kansas City, Missouri and on September 15 in Rogers, Arkansas.

Then, on September 22, Nate joins the Campus Consciousness Tour to promote climate action and a clean energy economy. It begins at Pennsylvania's Penn State York and visits colleges in Iowa, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, and Wisconsin through October.

"I can't wait to get on the road and play these new songs live," says Nate. "I'm thrilled that I could partner with Campus Consciousness again, as we've had a long history together, and I admire the work that they do supporting student activists."

It’s Nate’s fourth year headlining the CCT. In addition to performing, he’ll be meeting with student leaders to learn about their work promoting environmental awareness.

And as if that wasn’t enough, Nate will be playing a bunch of festivals this fall too, including St. Louis’ LouFest on September 12, Boston’s Boston Calling on September 26, Washington, D.C.’s Landmark Music Festival on September 27 and Austin’s ACL Music Festival on October 2 and 9.
