The shows will kick off with a set at Jacksonville’s Welcome To Rockville on May 3 and conclude with performance at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville on May 19.

Following the spring shows, Amy Lee, Tim McCord, Will Hunt, Troy McLawhorn and Jen Majura will play shows at Rock Fest and the Impact Festival on July 18 and 28 respectively.

Tickets for the tour will go on sale from 10am local time this coming Friday (February 8).
