The Summer Tour is Bridgit Mendler's second tour in support of her debut studio album Hello My Name Is..., which was released on October 22, 2012.

In 2013 the tour visited North America, where it started in Burlington, Iowa and ended in Arlington, Texas. The setlist included all the songs from Hello My Name Is..., except "The Fall Song" and "Love Will Tell Us Where to Go". She also covered two songs in her performances: "Starry Eyed", by Ellie Goulding, and "Animal", by Neon Trees.

In 2014 Mendler announced the second leg of the tour. The leg started in Charlottetown, Canada, on June 28, 2014. Mendler kept the same setlist from their previous album and included two new songs, "Fly To You" and "Deeper Shade Of Us", discarted from her upcoming second studio album. She also changed the covers, including "Magic", by Coldplay, and "Latch", by Disclosure and Sam Smith. In November 2014 Mendler would travel for the first time outside of North America with the tour to perform in South America in three countries, but they were cancelled.

Background Edit

On June 5, 2013, Mendler announced on her website that she would have a summer tour to promote her debut album Hello My Name Is... In the beginning of June, Mendler announced tour dates on her official website kicking off June 16 in Burlington, Iowa On June 7, she released in her Instagram the promotional banner of the tour, created by graphic artist Ashkahn Shahparnia, and revealed some dates. On July 31, Mendler said she spent a year and a half rehearsing with her band before the tour. She introduced her band, formed by Eric Nicolau in guitar and electric guitar, Roberto Cerletti in drums, Neara Russel in piano and backing vocals and Nick Adams in bass. In an interview with Cambio, Mendler commented about the tour saying: "I'm so excited to tour this Summer, I get to go and meet people in different parts of the USA", Mendler also said what people would expect of the tour, "I think it's a great opportunity to me, to get to know the audience better. I feel like my music is pretty new and I haven't had a huge opportunity to tour around because I was working on Good Luck Charlie, so I'm excited to share the music with people and I hope they enjoy it."

Mendler and the band were housed in her own bus that traveled the United States and Canada for concerts. In an interview to Artist Direct, she said that she rehearsed for months for reach the emotions also live. "Actually singing the songs live has been something I've definitely had to adjust to. They're not always easy songs. I'm proud of the arrangement we have now. I'm enjoying it. On August 1, Mendler said in an interview with Cambio she will take her tour to Europe when she finished American cities, but she did not tell the dates or countries.

Promotion Edit

Prior to the beginning of the tour, Mendler released a teaser video on her YouTube channel displaying video content. She conducted several interviews to talk about the tour and promoted it in a mini-concert for the Grammy Academy. In April 30 she released the extended play Live in London, by Universal Music, recorded at a special performance in the United Kingdom. Mendler not held shows in the country, but promoted the American leg. She said that was inspired particularly by Bob Dylan and Gwen Stefani on stage and cited their energy and presence. In interview to The Star Magazine, she also said he was inspired by the way Adele shows emotions on stage and she tried to do the same. "Adele did an amazing show. I really learned a lot about how she makes her performance because she is not a dancer, just a singer and storyteller. Adele made everyone feel as if you were in her living room. She told stories and interacted with the audience".
