|There really is no concert series quite like the Honda Civic Tour, with the annual event having been put on by the automaker almost every year since 2001. Not only does it offer music fans the chance to see some big name talent, but anybody who buys Honda Civic Tour tickets can win a custom-designed car as well.
The vehicle is not just any custom-made Civic, either. Each year the car is a bit different because it is designed by the band headlining the tour. Over the years, a wide variety of performers have tried their hand at customizing the car. The first tour was headlined by the likes of Blink-182 and Everclear, with Blink coming back 10 years later to headline it once again in 2011.
Though most years the Honda Civic Tour features alternative music acts, it has also dipped into some other genres. In 2007 for instance, hip hop stars The Black Eyed Peas took center stage, and came with supporting acts The Pussycat Dolls. Other bands to headline the tour include Maroon 5 in 2005, Fall Out Boy in 2008 and Paramore in 2010.
Bringing together some of the biggest names in the pop, rock and alternative worlds, the Honda Civic Tour has been a staple of the summer festival season for more than a decade.
