Ladies and gentleman, welcome back to the ‘90s.

The “Last Summer on Earth” has just been announced with Barenaked Ladies, Blues Traveler, Big Head Todd & The Monsters and Cracker. Whew. This one will take you back. The show pulls into Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on Aug. 14.

Tickets, $15-$125, go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday via livenation.com or by calling 800-745-3000.

"I love playing outside in the summertime," Barenaked Ladies singer-guitarist Ed Robertson said in a statement. “To travel and hang around with a bunch of bands, and get a chance to do some collaboration is part of the magic of a summer tour."

As for the name of the tour, Robertson added: "I'm a man of science, and therefore put zero stock in all of the disastrous predictions about the year 2012. But JUST IN CASE, I think everybody should come out and see one last great summer concert tour! It can't hurt, right?”
