The fourth annual Civic Tour launched on May 13 at the Cumberland Civic Center in Portland, ME, kicking off the highly anticipated 35-date tour. Headlining this year's tour is the alternative rock band Dashboard Confessional, who's single "Vindicated" will be featured on the upcoming Spiderman 2 soundtrack and currently can be heard on the Shrek 2 soundtrack. Sharing the stage with Dashboard Confessional are special guests Thrice and The Get Up Kids. Also touring the country will be a customized Civic Coupe, designed by Dashboard Confessional and displayed at all concert venues.

Ten customized Civics will be given away to fans in national and local media promotions, one of which will be given away through an online sweepstakes at the tour website, www.civictour.com. The site also includes commentary from the band, access to special pre-sale information, tour schedule and an exclusive live Dashboard Confessional track available for download.

"We are pleased to be entering the fourth year of the Civic Tour with such an exciting lineup and with the addition of the exclusive Dashboard Confessional music download, we are helping to bring fans closer to the band," said Tom Peyton, senior manager of national advertising at American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

Building on the success of the last three years with such A-list artists as blink-182, Everclear, Incubus, Good Charlotte and New Found Glory, Honda continues their support of emerging talent with the fourth consecutive Civic Tour.
