Danity Kane Announces 'No Filter' U.S. Tour
Do you happen to have a first aid kit handy? The Danity Kane comeback, announced last summer, will finally hit the road in May for the No Filter tour, it was announced on Tuesday (Mar. 25). The 13-date U.S. trek will begin in San Francisco on May 16.
"The symbol for the tour is our unfiltered selfies, a mosaic compiled of over 100,000 unfiltered images that our fans sent in," the reformed girl group declared in a press statement, which was accompanied by an official poster featuring the profile mosaics. "To our fans: Danity Kane is doing this for you. We want to give, see, and promote a real, unrestricted, uncensored, unfiltered life! That's why we make music and that's the way we want to see world!"
Best known for songs like "Show Stopper" and "Damaged," Danity Kane disbanded in 2009 after forming on MTV's "Making The Band" in 2005 and releasing two studio albums. Last August, Dawn Richard, Aundrea Fimbres, Shannon Bex and Aubrey O'Day announced that the group had reunited, and a new album -- with production from the Stereotypes -- is expected to be released later this year (fifth member D. Woods is not involved in the comeback).
Earlier this month, Richard spoke to Billboard about putting her flourishing solo career on hold to rejoin the girl group. "If people come to you and tell you that they're willing to put everything in their lives on hold as well to do something bigger, you have to make a choice whether you want to be selfish or selfless… I'm choosing to put people who helped start my career first," she said. "[A new album from] Danity Kane will come first, and it will be fantastic. I believe in this group."
