Punk legends Circle Jerks are beefing up their first tour in more than a decade with a new Spring 2022 North American leg. The new dates come in addition to previously announced fall and winter legs.
Circle Jerks had originally planned to tour extensively in 2020 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their landmark debut album, 1980’s Group Sex, but were forced to postpone the dates due to the pandemic. A couple of postponements later, the band now has a full itinerary of more than 50 shows scheduled over the next several months.
Having just played the Punk Rock Bowling festival in Las Vegas, Circle Jerks will play three shows later this month in the Southwest, followed by an East Coast run in December and a West Coast jaunt in February and early March.
The newly announced leg will see the band traveling across North America. The outing begins March 17th in Salt Lake City, Utah, and then heads to the East Coast before turning around and wrapping up May 13th at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
Joining Circle Jerks on the spring leg will be fellow hardcore-punk veterans 7Seconds, who are reuniting for the first time in five years, and Negative Approach, who will also support the earlier legs.
Tickets for the new dates go on sale this Friday (October 8th) via Ticketmaster, with pre-sales starting on Thursday. See Circle Jerks’ full itinerary below.
