Bad Religion's 40th anniversary tour with co-headliners Alkaline Trio and openers War On Women was one of the many tours cancelled due to Covid, but now they've rescheduled it for fall 2021 and added more cities to it. It kicks off on 10/15 in Riverside, CA and it makes its way to the East Coast and back before wrapping up at LA's Hollywood Palladium on 11/26.

As originally planned, it includes a show at Asbury Park's Convention Hall, which is now on Halloween (10/31), and there's now also a NYC show happening at Hammerstein Ballroom (10/29) two days earlier. Tickets go on sale Friday (6/25) at 10 AM local time. All dates are listed below.

UPDATE: The Asbury Park show was cancelled because "the venue will not be available for the previously scheduled date."

Bad Religion was one of my first loves," said Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba (who's also now in blink-182). "I remember exactly where I was the first time I heard Suffer. They are one of the very reasons I started playing punk rock music and continue to today. This tour is going to be epic on many levels. We’ve done Warped Tour and Festival shows many times over the years but this will be the first time it’s just us and I couldn’t be more thrilled!"

Bad Religion's Greg Graffin adds, "This tour is special; not only are we celebrating the return of live music, but we get to do it with Alkaline Trio, who are such a great band, really excited about this!"

Bad Religion celebrated the end of Trump's term earlier this year with the new song "Emancipation Of The Mind," and their 40th anniversary autobiography Do What You Want: The Story of Bad Religion is out now.

Alkaline Trio released a new EP last year and War On Women released Wonderful Hell which we named one of the best punk albums of 2020.

All three bands are featured in our list of 30 punk songs with great acoustic versions.
