AJR: The Neotheater World Tour - Part 2 - CANCELLED

EVENT UPDATE (5.14.20) - AJR has cancelled their 2020 tour. Tickets purchased online will automatically be refunded. Refunds for tickets purchased in person can be obtained in the Hartman Arena Box Office.

EVENT UPDATE (4.15.20) - The AJR show scheduled for May 27 has moved to the fall due to safety measures regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Please hold on to your tickets as they will be honored at the new date.

EVENT UPDATE: Almost Monday has been added as opener for this high-energy concert!

Insightful lyrical confessions, alternative ambition, earnest charm, D.I.Y. songcraft, and magnetic pop choruses ushered AJR to mainstream ubiquity just under the radar.

Since their 2013 independent debut Living Room, the New York trio of brothers—Adam [bass, vocals], Jack [vocals, guitar], and Ryan [ukulele, piano, vocals]—quietly transformed into an international phenomenon. By 2019, the group earned RIAA platinum certifications for breakout singles “I’m Ready” and “Weak” and gold certifications for “Burn The House Down” and “Sober Up” [feat. Rivers Cuomo] as well as for their 2017 sophomore full-length The Click [AJR Productions/S-Curve/BMG]. Not to mention, they generated upwards of 1 billion streams worldwide and 120 million YouTube views for the latter in less than two years. The band also landed two songs, “Burn The House Down” and “Sober Up,” on Billboard’s “Top 10 Alternative Songs of the Year.” Beyond selling over 100,000 tickets for the 2018 Click Tour, they graced the stages of festivals such as Forecastle, Reading, Leeds, and Bumbershoot and have a busy Summer ahead at Bottlerock, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and more. Plus, they garnered features from Time, Nylon, Paper, and Billboard in addition to performing on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, Good Morning America and TODAY, to name a few.

Kicking off their next chapter, the 2019 single “100 Days” unfurls as another undeniable offbeat anthem. Underscored by an orchestral hum, slick bass, and heavenly horns, it slips from memories like, “Remember when we all got drunk, I ended up with two broke thumbs, into a handclap-driven hypnotic hook, “A hundred bad days made a hundred good stories. A hundred good stories make me interesting at parties.” Sonically, you could liken it to Air and Weezer teaming up to score Curb Your Enthusiasm

About the song, AJR share, “As a band, and as guys in their twenties, most of our experiences end in rejection, failure, and bad days. We wanted to write a realistic look at that... what doesn't kill you doesn't always make you stronger. But what doesn't kill you always makes you more interesting.

They’ll most definitely have a few hundred more stories once their third full-length album, Neotheater”, arrives as they continue to redefine, reshape, and reinvigorate alternative music.
