Interscope rock band The Struts announce a run of 2020 California dates. Tour de California Presented by Harley-Davidson® will kick off February 28, 2020 in San Diego. A complete list of tour dates is below. Tickets go on sale Friday, November 15 at 10 a.m. PT. Visit thestruts.com for more info and to purchase tickets and VIP packages.
Earlier this year, The Struts’ hit song “Body Talks” was featured in Harley-Davidson’s global ad campaign for LiveWire™, the company’s first all-electric motorcycle. Harley-Davidson also sponsored the band’s 2019 New York City show where lead vocalist, Luke Spiller, rode a Harley-Davidson motorcycle onto the stage.
Spiller’s journey to rolling out onto the stage was a longtime coming. His fascination with the art of custom Harley-Davidson motorcycles and culture spans decades and this year he turned that love of two wheels into reality by learning to ride. A miniseries gives fans a peek into how Spiller sought a new kind of thrill and prepared to roll out in front of thousands.
“Harley-Davidson, like The Struts, represent freedom. Freedom to ride, make your own path, and be yourself,” says Luke Spiller of The Struts. “With its roots deeply embedded in classic style, The Struts share the qualities of Harley-Davidson as a means of expression and individuality.”
“Harley-Davidson and rock and roll have been synonymous throughout history and with The Struts we will continue the ensemble,” said Jon Bekefy, general manager of brand marketing at Harley-Davidson. “Tour de California will amplify the shared emotional euphoria that is music and riding.”
The Struts recently wrapped a sold-out tour of the U.K. performing songs from their two full length albums – Everybody Wants and YOUNG&DANGEROUS. Earlier this month, the band joined indie rockers León Benavente and headliner Green Day for MTV World Stage Seville, a global series that showcases the hottest performers from around the world.

Formed in Derby, England in 2012, The Struts have found themselves massively embraced by some of the greatest icons in rock-and-roll history. Along with opening for Foo Fighters, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and Guns N’ Roses, the U.K.-bred four-piece was also hand-picked by Mötley Crüe to serve as the supporting act for their last-ever performances. The Struts released their sophomore album YOUNG&DANGEROUS in the fall of 2018 and have been on the road nonstop since their formation including worldwide headline shows and prestigious festival plays including Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, Bottle Rock, Isle of Wright and many more.
