The Big Time Summer Tour is Big Time Rush's second headlining tour. In overwhelming response to their sold-out “Better with U Tour,” Big Time Rush announced that they will kick off “Big Time Summer Tour,” performing in over 50 cities across the US and Canada including stops in New York, Chicago, Boston and Toronto. Beginning on July 5th in Columbus, OH, the Nickelodeon stars and Columbia Recording artists performed songs off their latest album Elevate including “Music Sounds Better with U" and “Elevate.” During select dates, emerging Australian pop phenomenon Cody Simpson and X-Factor finalist and newly signed Nickelodeon talent Rachel Crow opened for Big Time Rush.

“We can’t wait to hit the road again!” said Big Time Rush. “The Better with U tour has been amazing and we’re incredibly grateful to our fans who have supported us and made our first headlining tour a success.”

The “Big Time Summer Tour” hit famed arenas such as PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ, First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Chicago, IL and Comcast Center in Boston, MA, once again, bringing their powerhouse performance to fans across the country.

The tour officially kicked off on July 5, 2012 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio and concluded on October 11, 2012 at the Figali Convention Center in Panama City, Panama. The tour included cities in North and South America.
