Tickets to nine of the shows go on sale this weekend, according to tour promoter SFX Entertainment. Details appear in the itinerary below.

Strong ticket sales for shows that hit the box office last Saturday (3/24) have resulted in a handful of multi-night stands. The group's previously announced July 9 engagement in Boston has now been extended to a three-night run, and second nights have also been added to the tour's stops in Toronto and Calgary.

The dates for the group's previously planned June stops in Indianapolis, Lexington, Ky., and Pittsburgh have been shuffled, and will now take place on June 20, 21 and 26, respectively.

Other newly added dates include an August 16 stop at Los Angeles' Great Western Forum, an Aug. 18 stop near San Bernardino, Calif., and an Aug. 26 stop in St. Louis.

Previously announced stops in Columbus, Ohio, on June 24 and Little Rock, Ark., on Sept. 1 have been dropped from the latest itinerary, according to SFX.
