Halestorm and In This Moment have announced a co-headlining North American tour showcasing all female-fronted hard rock outfits. Support will come from New Years Day and Stitched Up Heart. The tour will kick off April 30, in Houston, Texas, and then travel through mid-May, and include stops at a number of festivals and state fairs, such as Welcome to Rockville (April 27) in Jacksonville, Florida; Fort Rock (April 28) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and Carolina Rebellion (May 5) in Concord, North Carolina.

“We’ve been wanting to put together a tour like this for a long time,” said Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale. “We are a few of the hardest working women in rock, so the fact that we are all on the same stage every night is something not to be missed! We support and love each other, and we are representing our genre. This lineup is a beautiful display of what it means to be a strong female example for rock fans everywhere.”
In This Moment’s Maria Brink echoed the sentiment, saying, “I am very excited about being a part of such an empowering, divine, female-fronted tour. It is very rare in rock music to have a movement like this and the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Lzzy and I are already discussing the possibility of more tours like this in the future. Let the Amazons rise!”
“I am beyond thrilled to be sharing the stage with such strong women,” said Ash Costello of New Years Day. “Having toured with both Halestorm and In This Moment already, they are such powerful forces, it’s just incredible to be a part of every night. I’m very excited for an all female fronted tour, because in all my years of touring, this is the very first time I’ll have been a part of one. I can’t wait to walk on stage and feel the support of a crowd that is there to witness women of rock slay for an entire evening. What an evening it will be! You won’t want to miss this tour, I can promise you that.”
“This is our dream lineup,” said Stitched Up Heart frontwoman Alecia “Mixi” Demner. “Every single band on this bill is a huge inspiration to us and unbelievably talented. We are beyond excited for this run!”
