OneRepublic extends 2014 tour

By Chelsea Lewis ,

OneRepublic has been experiencing success with their latest album Native and chart topping single, "Counting Stars." The band recently announced a 16-date tour and has added 27 new dates to extend the tour.

The band sold out so many dates on their upcoming tour that they decided to extend the tour further into late August, Billboard reported. The tour has now expanded to 43 dates.

A press release added that the Native tour will kick off at the famous Red Rocks venue in Colorado. The tour will be concluding in late August.

Front man Ryan Tedder talked about the band's recent success and their urge to play for fans.

"We always knew we were going to go out again in the summer, we just didn't know in what capacity or how big or whatever," Tedder said. "To test the waters, we picked mostly the major markets for the June tour, and it blew out so quickly in so many of the cities that... we were just kind of stupefied."

2013 and the transition into 2014 has been a strong time for OneRepublic. The band continued with their debut success when they released "Apologize," their debut single.
