More acts headed to Verizon this summer

The summer concert calendar is starting to fill up. Maroon 5 and Train announced Monday morning that the two Grammy winning groups will team up for a summer co-headlining tour. The tour will hit Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Charlotte August 2nd. A few days later on August 5th, Kings of Leon return to Verizon with special guest Band of Horses.

Maroon 5 Singer Adam Levine announced the upcoming co-headlining tour via the band's website Friday (in the above video). Dates were announced Monday. The Maroon 5/Train tour kicks off July 22nd and the Charlotte date is the first of its East Coast run. Reported opening acts will be Gavin DeGraw for the first leg of the tour (which includes Charlotte) and Matt Nathanson on the second. Special fan ticket packages go on sale Tuesday, April 26th.

Tickets for both the Maroon 5/Train and the Kings of Leon dates will go on sale to the public May 14th. Presale for KoL's Charlotte show begins May 10th. Kings of Leon last played Charlotte in September 2010. This marks the Tennessee rockers first full US tour since the release of its latest album "Come Around Sundown."

Kings of Leon recently headlined opening night of the Coachella Festival and taped an episode of VH1's "Storytellers" that will relaunch the series May 13th.
