Hawthorne Heights to Headline Nintendo Fusion Tour

Relient K, Plain White T's, and others will round out the bill for the fourth annual gamer-friendly tour.

Hawthorne Heights will headline the fourth annual Nintendo Fusion tour, which features a series of performers, and will give gaming fans the chance to check out the Nintendo DS Lite and the company’s much-anticipated new system, Wii. Relient K, Emery, Plain White T’s, and the Sleeping are also on the bill for the tour, which will hit around 40 cities between Sept. 27 and Nov. 11.

“Nintendo always picks great rock bands, and we are happy to follow in that tradition this year,” Hawthorne Heights singer JT Woodruff said in a statement. “But mainly, I am an old-school video game nerd.” In the past, Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, My Chemical Romance, Story of the Year, Motion City Soundtrack, and Evanescence have been featured on the tour. Cities and venues will be announced shortly.
