After their sold-out “Better With U Tour” earlier this year, Big Time Rush announced a second leg of live dates, titled, “Big Time Summer Tour.” This trek will see the group perform in over 50 cities across the US and Canada including a July 19th Verizon Wireless Amphitheater show. Now, Big Time Rush has just added a second Southland appearance to their summer itinerary – Citizens Business Bank Arena on Saturday, September 22nd.

Tickets for this show will go on sale Saturday, June 30th at 10 AM. They will be available at LiveNation.com and AXS.com, as well as by phone at 888-9AXS-TIX (888-929-7849).

Beginning on July 5th in Columbus, OH, the Nickelodeon stars and Columbia Recording artists will perform songs off their latest album Elevate including “Music Sounds Better With U,” “All Over Again” and “Elevate.”

“We can’t wait to hit the road again!” said Big Time Rush. “The Better With U tour has been amazing and we’re incredibly grateful to our fans who have supported us and made our first headlining tour a success.”

Big Time Rush took home the Blimp for “Favorite Music Group” at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards, where they were nominated alongside LMFAO, Black Eyed Peas, and Lady Antebellum. This was their second nomination in the category.

Big Time Rush – Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena Jr. and Logan Henderson – recently released their second album, Elevate. The highly anticipated follow-up to the group’s Gold-certified debut BTR, Elevate features tracks including “Music Sounds Better With U (featuring Mann),” “Show Me” and “All Over Again,” plus brand-new music that will debut on upcoming episodes of the TV series. Also earlier this year, Big Time Rush released the soundtrack for their movie, Big Time Movie, exclusively on iTunes. The soundtrack features covers of beloved Beatles songs including “Help,” “Revolution” and “Hard Day’s Night.” Big Time Movie premiered this spring on Nickelodeon.

Now in its second season, Big Time Rush – which follows four best friends from Minnesota who trade in their hockey sticks for music superstardom in Los Angeles -- averages 3.6 million total viewers (+2%, over season one). The launch of the hit series on Nickelodeon drew 6.8 million viewers, making it the most watched live-action series premiere in the network’s history.
