Annual U.S. run begins on August 1.
Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson will team up for the late summer/early fall Honda Civic Tour, it was announced on Monday (Apr. 1). Promoted by Live Nation, the 2013 Honda Civic Tour kicks off on Aug. 1 in St. Louis, and runs through Oct. 5.
Maroon 5 is billed as the headlining act on this year's run, with Clarkson serving as a "special guest." Rozzi Crane, Tony Lucca and PJ Morton will each be opening for the pop superstars on select dates.
Both Maroon 5 and Clarkson were highly active on the Hot 100 in 2012: the pop-rock quintet's fourth studio album, "Overexposed," included the Top 5 smashes "Payphone" and "One More Night," while Clarkson's "Stronger" singles "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" and "Dark Side" were followed late last year by "Catch My Breath," from her "Greatest Hits: Chapter One" compilation. Last month, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine returned to "The Voice" as a coach, while Clarkson announced a new "Greatest Hits" single, "People Like Us."
