In an innovative twist to creating a tour schedule, 100 Monkeys announced that they will let their fans decide what cities get some monkey love as they embarked on their 100 city tour. The band recently announced the first 20 cities they will perform, and Oklahoma City is one of them.
Other cities 100 Monkeys will visit on their first leg of the tour include Atlanta, Birmingham, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Houston, Indianapolis, Louisville, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Omaha, Orlando, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland (OR), Raleigh, Sacramento, Seattle and St. Louis.
"We have kind of a contest where fans go to the website, they send us in, on our website, where they're from and where they want us to play, and were going to take the top cities and try to hit those first and make sure we get to all the cities that are really begging to see us," band member Jackson Rathbone recently told MTV.
100 Monkeys has shot to popularity over the past few months with the fame of Rathbone, who plays Jasper Hale in the popular movie adaptions of the "Twilight" saga. What makes this indie band so unique is that each member can play every instrument. It is not uncommon for them to show off these musical talents by switching instruments during a gig.
Details on the Oklahoma City show are not yet available, but will be announced on the 100 Monkeys official site: http://www.100monkeysmusic.com/
