Today, American indie folk group The 502s have announced their Live Nation-produced 2024 trek – Great American Road Trip – across 26 cities in North America with support from Zach Seabaugh and Daniel Nunnelee. The “happiest band on Earth” promises to deliver their signature upbeat folk party performance in support of their forthcoming self-titled album coming out on April 12th.
The tour kicks off on April 12 at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, FL making stops in Atlanta, GA; Nashville, TN; New York, NY; Toronto, ON; Detroit, MI; Chicago, IL; Seattle, WA; Los Angeles, CA and more before wrapping up in Austin, TX at Scoot Inn on May 24.
The 502s are known as the happiest band on earth. Led by earnest banjo-strumming lead singer-songwriter Ed Isola, the six piece indie-folk (or beach core or ska folk) band from Orlando is more than just a group of happy-go-lucky musicians, they are one of the best live bands of their generation. The raucous, nonstop, life-affirming experience of a 502s show is quickly becoming a thing of legend.
In three short years, the 502s leapt from their first show at a local bar to selling out tours across the US and Europe, fueled by their hit “Just A Little While” (100m streams and counting). However, to credit their fast rise to success on one song misses the full story and would greatly disappoint the enthusiastic fanbase who sing every word to every song at their live shows. As a fan once famously said “If you could bottle this experience up and sell it, it would solve a lot of the world’s problems.”
Fans can sign up now at the502s.com/tour for first access to the artist presale beginning on Tuesday, January 23. Additional presales will run throughout the week ahead of the general onsale starting on Friday, January 26 at 10am local time at the502s.com/tour.
