If you’re looking for a show to go see, you’ve come to the right spot. Here, we list some of the big news from the last week so you can stay ahead of the game when it comes to who is going out on tour.
This is just a sampling of what’s going on in the world of music, though. Head over to our tickets listings page for more info regarding who is currently out on tour.
Alice Cooper: November 3rd, 2019 – April 22nd, 2020
Legendary rocker Alice Cooper just announced that he will be extending the Ol’ Black Eyes is Back tour well into 2020. This extension adds 14 cities to the ongoing tour and brings the iconic music of Alice Cooper to tens of thousands more. Cooper is well known for songs like “School’s Out” and “Feed My Frankenstein” and he has gained a cult following because of them. He has released more than 25 albums, with his first dating back to 1977. With a career like that, it’s easy to see why he has such a huge following. This new leg of the tour will see him joined by Lita Ford. Be sure to grab your tickets soon if you haven’t already so you don’t miss out on this epic tour.
Blake Shelton: November 15th, 2019 – March 21st, 2020
Country music star Blake Shelton will be extending his Friends & Heroes tour for a considerable new stretch of the tour. 12 new cities were just added to the lineup, including Denver, Sacramento, and Portland. Blake has a number of hits, including “Ol’ Red,” “Some Beach,” and “God Gave Me You.” You might be a longtime fan of Shelton’s twangy country style, or you might have been exposed to him as a personality on the hit show, The Voice. Either way, it’s undeniable that Shelton is one of the giants of country music. If you haven’t had a chance to see him yet, this is it. Head over to our ticket section to see what’s still available. You’ll want to move quickly because these tickets will sell out.
Dweezil Zappa: February 5th – March 28th, 2020
Maybe you’ve never heard of Dweezil Zappa, but you’ve definitely heard of his dad, Frank Zappa. Dweezil has carried on with his dad’s uniquely quirky yet immensely talented style of music and is extending his current tour thanks to its popularity. Seattle, Las Vegas, and San Francisco are just a few of his major stops along the way. The tour starts out on the West Coast, but there are also a bunch of East Coast dates scheduled toward the end of it. This promises to be an awesome set of shows, so don’t miss out on it. With new tour dates already scheduled, previously established shows will see even more action. Grab tickets today so you don’t miss your shot to see Dweezil play live.
Echosmith: February 12th – March 5th, 2020
Indie rockers Echosmith will be heading out on a brief tour in early 2020. This comes on the heels of the announcement that they will be releasing their third album, Lonely Generation, in January. The tour focuses mostly on the Eastern half of the U.S., but there are a few shows out in California, Washington, and Utah toward the tail end of the tour. The group has been around for about ten years now and consists of three siblings. They even recently toured with the legendary Pentatonix. Echosmith might still be a new name for you, but they’re slowly becoming more and more popular. Check out our listings to see what shows are scheduled near you.
The Music of Cream: October 25th, 2019 – May 3rd, 2020
Everyone knows classic rock giants, Cream. Led by frontman Eric Clapton, Cream was once one of the biggest names in rock music. Today, you can still catch their songs, performed by relatives of several members of the original band. Clapton’s nephew, Will Johns, is one of the premier musicians in the country today, and this tour promises to be huge. Cream recorded some of the biggest hits, including “Sunshine of Your Love” and “Crossroads.” This tour is in response to the insanely popular world tour that the same group held back in 2018. That was to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Cream’s Farewell tour. This tour might not have the same force behind it, but we expect it to be just as popular with rock fans.
Other Artists to Watch
Chris Brown’s newest album is moving up the Billboard charts quickly. If you haven’t heard it yet, give it a listen. And keep your eyes peeled—he has a ton of momentum right now and maybe headed out on tour soon.
Ed Sheeran is also moving up the charts lately. His album, No. 6 Collaborations Project, is currently ranked at #14 on the charts, and he has a lot of radio play going for him, too. There are no tour announcements yet, but we expect that to change in the very near future.
