Concert News: A Day to Remember returns to Fresno

Rock band A Day to Remember — popular with the teenage/Warped Tour crowd — will roll back into Fresno on April 19, as part of a just-announced spring tour.

The all-ages show is at Rainbow Ballroom and also features Of Mice & Men and Issues. Tickets are on sale Friday and cost $28.50. Here’s a Facebook event link and the ticket page via Vallitix.

We’ve seen ADTR in Fresno numerous times over the years, the most recently at the New Rock 104.1 Nightmare Before Christmas concert at Selland Arena in December 2011. Before that, it was at the Rotary Amphitheater at Woodward Park in April 2011 and at Rainbow Ballroom in May 2010.

Like that previous Rainbow show, this one is being promoted by Numbskull Productions. Below is a video from the band’s Woodward Park appearance.
