Well as long as you’re singing it to yourself, you might as well see it in the sunshine.

Walk The Moon announced today that they will return to Philadelphia with a headlining spot at Festival Pier on Saturday July 23rd for their Work This Body Tour.

Beyond “Shut Up And Dance” – which was massive and catapulted the Cinncinati band to another level – Walk The Moon has been specializing in infectious pop since their debut in 2012. The band won over a first wave of local fans when playing the Firefly Music Festival in Dover , DE that year. They returned to the Woodlands in 2015.

Opening for Walk The Moon will be the band Misterwives with their own brand of dance pop, fronted by the spectacular voice of Mandy Lee. They also played their first festival show at Firefly back in 2014. You can hear our interview with Misterwives from after that performance below.

Tickets for Walk The Moon and Misterwives go on sale this Friday, February 5th at noon.
