[pullquote quote="I love playing outside in the summertime!" credit="Ed Robertson"]Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies thinks that all this prediction for disaster in the year 2012 is a bunch of hooey. But just in case, shouldn’t everyone come out and see one, great, last summer tour?

That’s why they’ve announced their Last Summer On Earth Tour, launching July 6th at the Toledo Zoo Amphitheater in Toledo, Ohio, and hitting more than 30 arenas across the country.

Also on the bill are Blues Traveler, Big Head Todd and the Monsters and Cracker.

“I love playing outside in the summertime,” says Robertson. “To travel and hang around with a bunch of bands, and get a chance to do some collaboration is part of the magic of a summer tour.” It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the Barenaked Ladies, who recently announced that they’ll be composing an original score for Animal House: The Musical, a theatrical production based on the popular 1978 comedy.

If you want to get in the mood for the show, pick up their long-awaited rarities album, Stop Us If You’ve Heard This One Before!, (out May 8th) which will feature 12 rare and previously unreleased tracks including demos, b-sides, remixes and live recordings between 1994 and 2003.

And of course, you know that they sing the theme song to CBS’ Big Band Theory! Here they are singing it live at ComicCon:

Into Blues Traveler? Then get their brand-new, two-CD retrospective, 25, which offers an impressive overview of their career, with one disc featuring “greatest hits” like “Run-Around,” “Hook,” “But Anyway” and “Carolina Blues” (representing every one of their nine studio albums) and a brand-new cover of Sublime‘s “What I Got,” as well as a second disc which includes b-sides, unreleased demos and rarities. This tune, “Run Around,” was the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history:

Colorado’s Big Head Todd and the Monsters, famous for their epic shows at Red Rocks, helped make history in 2011 when they performed “Blue Sky” to the crew of space shuttle Discovery, becoming the only band to ever play a shuttle Wake Up Call live from NASA’s Mission Control. Check it out below:

Cracker‘s co-founders, David Lowery and Johnny Hickman have been at it for 20 years now – amassing nine studio albums (their most recent, 2009’s critically acclaimed Sunrise In The Land Of Milk And Honey), multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs that are still in current radio rotation around the globe, and a worldwide fan base – that despite the major sea-changes within the music industry – continues to grow each year.
