The tour will kick off April 21 in San Francisco, playing North American clubs and theaters through a May 31 finale in San Diego.
Through a special promotion, AT&T Wireless is giving away tickets to Yorn concerts with the chance to meet the artist in person. The company is also sponsoring a sweepstakes where one fan will win a four-day trip to hang out with Yorn. For more information, visit meetpete.attwireless.com.
Long before the tour, Yorn will join Coldplay for a one-off show late Sunday night (Feb. 23) in New York. The two acts will perform at the Theater at Madison Square Garden following the Grammy Awards, which will be held upstairs in the famous arena in the same building. Sponsored by local radio station WXRK (K-Rock) and Blue from American Express, the event includes viewing of the Grammy ceremony on a big screen inside the theater. Tickets are available via Ticketmaster.
As previously reported, "Day I Forgot" was produced by R. Walt Vincent and Brad Wood, and recorded in the same Los Angeles-area garage studio as Yorn's 2001 breakthrough album, "Musicforthemorningafter." The critically acclaimed set topped Billboard's Heatseekers chart and has sold 512,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
