Paramore and Foster The People are teaming up for a joint concert trek.

The “After Laughter Summer Tour,” which takes its name from Paramore’s 2017 album, will open June 12 at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre in Florida and conclude July 24 at Red Rock Amphitheatre outside of Denver.

It boasts three California dates, including a July 19 show at San Diego’s Mattress Firm Amphitheatre. All tour dates and cities appear below, along with ticket information.

The “After Laughter” album counts Elton John among its fans.

“(It is) probably one of the most underrated albums of last year,” John said earlier this week on his Beats 1 “Rocket Hour” radio show.

“It should’ve been a huge album. They can be really proud of that album. It was a fabulous record, and if you haven’t heard it, go buy it now!”

This prompted Paramore singer Hayley Williams to tweet her thanks and extend an invitation to attend a Paramore concert to John, whose farewell tour includes a Jan. 29 concert at San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center.

Tickets for the “After Laughter” tour will go on sale to the general public Friday, March 16, at 10 a.m. local time at and by phone at (800) 745-3000. Ticket prices for the San Diego show range from $29.50 to $89.50, plus service charges.

A pre-sale starting for Citi card members began at 7 a.m. and runs through Sunday, March 11.

In an effort to thwart scalpers and re-sale agencies, Paramore is partnering with Ticketmaster to use its Verified Fan platform.

Registration for Paramore’s Ticketmaster Verified Fan pre-sale powered runs through 7 p.m. PST Sunday. The pre-sale tickets for registered fans will go on sale Wednesday, March 14, at 9 a.m. local time through Thursday, March 15, at 10pm local time, while limited supplies last.
