One of summer’s most anticipated concert tours, the Honda Civic Tour, is in full swing with multi-platinum-band OneRepublic – featuring special guests Fitz and the Tantrums and James Arthur – and is all set to add the new “City Flavor” pop-up food and music experience at select Civic Tour concert venues.
As part of the promotion, the band recorded a promotional video set in Nashville… with Matt as the lead!
Now in its 16th year, the robust North American tour includes dates in Detroit, Virginia Beach, Philadelphia, Hartford, Dallas and Los Angeles, as well as in Anaheim at the Honda Center on Sept. 2.
Offering the most engaging experiences and promotions in the tour’s history, the 2017 Civic Tour will debut “Civic Tour City Flavor,” a pop-up food experience in select markets. Music and culinary fans everywhere can follow exclusive backstage livestream of Civic Tour City Flavor content featuring some of the most infamous food trucks and local cuisine of some of America’s beloved cities via Honda Stage social channels: honda.us/CityFlavor. Civic Tour City Flavor will include appearances from chefs, OneRepublic, Fitz and the Tantrums, James Arthur as well as YouTube singer-songwriters and social media stars.
Civic Tour City Flavor’s first stop will be in Detroit at the DTE Energy Music Center, with stops in Washington, D.C., New York City, Boston, Seattle, San Francisco, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Denver and Dallas areas.
“We’ve always really loved immersing ourselves in the cities we travel to,” said Ryan Tedder. “We came up with the Honda Civic Tour City Flavor promotion as a way to combine our love for music and food. We can’t wait to bring some of the best food trucks chefs in the country backstage to our shows for our fans, our crew and us to enjoy.”
This year has seen new music from OneRepublic starting with the release of No Vacancy in April and more recently, Truth To Power, last month. Truth To Power was written and produced by Ryan Tedder and T Bone Burnett and will be featured in Paramount Pictures and Participant Media’s film, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power, out in theaters July 28th. Just last week OneRepublic released Rich Love, a collaboration with Norwegian production trio Seeb.
Civic Tour Fan Involvement
For 2017, OneRepublic took the all-new Honda Civic Type R and 2017 Honda Rebel motorcycle to the next level by designing their very own special-edition vehicles for Honda Civic Tour. These custom, autographed rides are joining the band on the road this summer, and fans can catch them at each stop of the 2017 Honda Civic Tour. The OneRepublic custom Civic Type R – the most powerful production Honda ever sold in the US – is inspired by the band’s love of modern architecture and clean design. The red accents, mixed with a combination of gloss and matte black, complete this one-of-a-kind vehicle.
Throughout the duration of the tour, fans will have the opportunity to enter in the Honda Civic Tour Sweepstakes for a chance to win multiple experiences, including the “Which Civic R You?” sweepstakes that highlights the Civic line up, noting “there is a Civic out there for everyone.” One lucky winner will get to drive home in their choice of a brand new 2017 Honda Civic Sedan, Coupe, Hatchback, Si or Type R. Civic Tour fans also will have the opportunity to cruise away on a Honda Rebel motorcycle, plus the chance to fly out to Los Angeles to see OneRepublic live on the Civic Tour courtesy of Honda Financial Services.
