The All-American Rejects will move along this summer as they embark on a 12-date, national headline tour that begins Wednesday at the Orange County Fair.
Since early June, the alternative rock group has been performing at European festivals and accompanying Blink-182 on its international tour.
"It was like two months overseas, so we're stoked to be back, especially to start it here, what now is my home," guitarist Nick Wheeler said in a phone interview.
According to Wheeler, the set list has grown significantly since the band last played the Pacific Amphitheater in 2005 — especially after three studio albums and the March 26 release of "Kids in the Street."
"We're one of those bands that still give the fans that have been listening to us for a while what they want to hear," Wheeler said. "We love playing the hits. We love playing the old stuff too. So it should be nice and well-rounded, a good Rejects catalog set."
