Summer’s just getting rolling, and already many big names in music are getting ready for the fall and winter. That’s okay with us here; the sooner you know what tours are coming up, the sooner you can start planning out your concert viewing.
Knowing who is touring early gives you a big advantage. First, buying tickets early lets you have your pick of seats. You’re far more likely to be located exactly where you want to be so that you are not missing out on any of the action. And second, knowing what’s going on ahead of others gives you an advantage when it comes to price. You might find that waiting is the best strategy, but that’s not always the case. Either way, there’s a great advantage to being able to plan things out ahead of time.
Here, we’ve gathered together some of the bigger announcements from the last week or so. These are new concert announcements along with some extensions to existing ones. These aren’t the only new announcements, just a handful of some of the bigger ones.
And if you are looking for good deals on great seats, be sure to check out our ticket listings. There, we have all of the hottest and most popular tickets that are currently available for sale to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
Ariana Grande: June 22nd – December 21st, 2019
Ariana Grande has been out on the Sweetener tour, and thanks to the great deal of success that she’s seen so far, several new tour dates have been added onto her previous list of stops. This new extension adds Atlanta, Miami, Dallas, and Las Vegas, along with several other major cities to her upcoming concert series. Grande first hit it big on a couple Nickelodeon television shows but has skyrocketed through the ranks of stardom since launching her solo album. Her Thank U, Next album came out in early 2019, but there’s still a lot of momentum when it comes to sales. If you’ve never seen Grande perform live, then this is your chance. Tickets will sell out for these shows, so buying tickets early will make sure that you’re located exactly where you want to be.
Switchfoot: August 3rd – November 9th, 2019
Switchfoot is one of those bands that has tremendous appeal across genres. They are popular on the rock scene, but also have produced many Christian radio hits. Based out of Southern California, Switchfoot has been a big draw when it comes to live shows for several years now. With songs like “Dare You to Move,” “Meant to Live,” and “This is Your Life,” Switchfoot has put out a lot of hit songs. Their current tour is called The Fantastic Traveling Music Show and will be one of their biggest yet. Because of their popularity, this will be a big event, and tickets might be tough to find, especially in the bigger cities. Check out our concert listings page to see what tickets are currently available.
Meek Mill: August 1st – October 5th, 2019
Meek Mill and Future just announced a big joint tour together. The Legendary Nights tour features two big-name rappers, both of whom have gone multi-platinum in sales. The tour will kick off in St. Louis and then hit up several major cities across North America. Rap fans will be flocking to these shows, many of which will be held at outdoor venues to allow fans to enjoy the end of summer and beginning of autumn and the music at the same time. These dates will almost definitely sell out, which means ticket prices will be at a premium as it gets closer to showtime. If you’re interested in seeing Meek Mill and Future together on stage, you have a few choices. Buying tickets now is the safest way to go, or you can continue to check back and see if ticket prices drop on the third party market. Because this will be such a hot ticket item, this latter strategy is not a great one. Buying your tickets now will ensure that you pay a fair price and get exactly the seats you want.
Black Label Society: September 11, 2019 – July 31st, 2020
Hard rockers Black Label Society will be hitting the road for a massive North American tour later this fall, extending well into next year. Black Label Society has been a big name in Metal for years, having toured with big names like Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, and Corrosion of Conformity. This will be a big event, and because of the size of this tour, there will be a good chance that they’ll be playing in a city near you. Whether you’re a Metal fan in general, or just a fan of BLS, this is a show you won’t want to miss out on. Grab tickets today to guarantee yourself a seat at their show.
