If you were bummed that Tramped by Turtles only had one Minnesota tour date scheduled for 2019 (so far), here's some good news: the Duluth indie-folk band has just been added to the summer lineup at Treasure Island Resort & Casino. 

On Friday, the Red Wing, Minnesota, casino announced that TBT would be performing with the Avett Brothers as part of its 2019 Summer Concert Series.

This new tour dates come less than a year after the band reunited following a long hiatus, debuting the new album Life is Good on the Open Road and returning to live performances.

In 2016, they announced they would be "going away for a little while," which proved to be about two years. 

At the time, guitarist and lead vocalist Dave Simonett said "he was exhausted by the band and wanted to explore music with others," WGLT says. 

It was apparently a good move, with the musicians telling the station that the "space provided by the break" ultimately helped TBT as a band.

Tickets for the Treasure Island concert will go on sale Friday, Jan. 18, at 10 a.m. They'll range from $35 to $99; you can get them at www.Ticketmaster.com or go to the Island Box Office.

TBT will be joining an eventful lineup at Treasure Island; Lynyrd Skynyrd will be performing during the same series as part of their farewell tour. They'll be playing July 19.
