Metro Station To Open for Miley Cyrus on Her Fall Arena Tour

Sony Columbia Records - 06/04/2009

The rumors are true! As announced by Miley Cyrus early yesterday morning, the pop superstar will be joined by special guests Metro Station on her upcoming North American tour. The ten-week arena run -- launching September 14 in Portland, OR, and running through December 2, in Miami, FL -- will mark the first time that Cyrus will tour with her brother Trace, who sings and plays guitar in Metro Station.

Metro Station -- Trace Cyrus (vocals, guitar), Mason Musso (vocals, guitar), Blake Healy (keyboards, synth) and Anthony Improgo (percussion) -- are currently wrapping up a two week tour of Japan, and later this month will return to Europe for three weeks of dates. In May they completed their most extensive domestic run to date, providing support on Fall Out Boy's "Believers Never Die" tour.

The band recently completed shooting the video for the new single "Kelsey," which stars Aimee Teegarden from the NBC series "Friday Night Lights." The video will premier later this summer.
