Nico Vega To Get “Juicy” With Locals On Headlining Tour
Tour Kicks Off Today July 11th in San Diego, CA
New York, NY – Nico Vega, the breakout band of 2013 as dubbed by Amazon, kicks off their co-headlining tour today in San Diego, CA. On select dates, the band will make a stop at a partnering local juice bar to offer up free samples of their “Beast Juice.” The juice, which was named after Nico Vega’s breakout single, consists of beets, spinach, kale, carrots, apples, pineapple, mint and ginger. Each of the juice bars will also be offering up a free pair of tickets to the band’s show later that night.
The band are fresh off a support slot on the sold out Imagine Dragons tour, with the upcoming dates allowing for a more intimate performance. Earlier this year, Nico Vega released their new EP, Fury Oh Fury (Five Seven Music), which features the unexpected hit, “Beast.” The anthemic song was featured in the trailer for the most highly anticipated video game of the year, BioShock Infinite and went on to top Spotify’s viral charts and Billboard’s Next Big Sound chart. The press took notice and lavished their praise with Billboard describing it as a “…grungy breakout single…whips up ear-blistering riffs and presents pounding tom-toms” and NYLON saying “The LA rocking band mean business…” The official video for the song can be viewed here.
The below markets will include a stop at the indicated juice bar. Be sure to check out each juice bar’s social media for the time the band will be there as well as a chance to win a pair of tickets to that show!

“We’ve taken our live shows very seriously from the beginning. We’ve always been like, ‘We need to get better and better!’ The band has been touring for years, but we definitely played to a lot of new people on the Imagine Dragons tour. So weirdly, we feel like we’re finally just breaking.” – Aja
