Being a gig fan in an aftermarket like Boise can sometimes be a frustrating proposition.

Up and coming bands play a show here – then disappear for years, performing everywhere, apparently, corn our city.

However, it is better to be patient.

After ghosting Boise for nearly a decade, folk-rock band The Lumineers will finally return to headlines on Tuesday, July 12 at ExtraMile Arena. Tickets for the general public go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday for $47.75 to $145.50 at Ticketmaster. (Presale opportunities have already been launched.) Gregory Alan Isakov and Daniel Rodriguez will open the show.

While they may not stand out as a mainstream arena-sized player, the Lumineers are popular with adult audiences. Their fourth album, “Brightside”, recently reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Airplay chart. The Lumineers have more No. 1 singles on this chart — six — than any other act since they first did it with “Ho Hey.” (On Boise radio, “adult alternative” is the type of music played on 94.9 FM The River.)

A few days after their concert in Boise, The Lumineers will visit the magnificent Gorge Amphitheater in Washington. Less than a week later, they’re even headlining Coors Field, the Colorado Rockies’ baseball stadium in their hometown of Denver.

The last time The Lumineers came to Boise was in 2013. They had become big quickly, thanks to their high-energy live show and self-titled debut album. It included the singles “Ho Hey”, “Stubborn Love”, and “Submarines”.

Yahoo! helped them get even bigger – at least in Idaho.

As part of Yahoo! on the Road Tour, the Lumineers were booked at the Revolution Concert House in Garden City. Ticket vouchers were given out for free, meaning around 2,000 fans showed up. In other cities, the entertainment and mobile technology tour featured artists such as fun., Fall Out Boy and Kendrick Lamar.

The Lumineers have enjoyed great international success since that promotional gig in the Boise area — but have kind of kept us in the dark until now.

The music isn’t the only reason fans love The Lumineers. The band also teamed up with environmental nonprofit Reverb on this year’s tour. In addition to “reducing the environmental footprint of the tour and inspiring fans to take action at the shows,” according to a press release, it “will support projects that directly and measurably eliminate greenhouse gases while benefiting various global communities. These efforts will make the climate of the tour positive; removing far more greenhouse gas pollution than the tour emits, including fan travel to and from shows.
