Beginning this June, Matt Nathanson is teaming up with old touring pal Gavin DeGraw to co-headline a two month North American tour.

Kicking off at the Anselmo Valencia Amphitheater in Tucson, AZ, additional shows include the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (6/18), Greek Theatre in San Francisco (6/20), Humphrey’s in San Diego (6/15), Massey Hall in Toronto (7/16) and Central Park’s Summerstage in New York (8/13).

Initial dates are listed below with additional dates to be announced soon. Joining Nathanson and DeGraw will be special guests Mary Lambert, featured songstress from Macklemore's anthem "Same Love," and Andrew McMahon, formerly of Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate.

Fans have long known Matt Nathanson for his incredibly dynamic live shows, his vivid songwriting and infectious melodies. This tour will include some of Nathanson’s classic gems and songs from his latest album, Last Of The Great Pretenders, which was hailed as the ‘Album of the Week’ by USA Today.

The album features “Kinks Shirt,” which continues to rocket up the Hot AC chart and is being heard on American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest, The Billy Bush Show and Rick Dees Countdown. The album also includes the track “Heart Starts,” which is the theme to Lifetime’s Celebrity Bucket List – on which Nathanson was recently featured.
