Alison Krauss: January 17th – June 4th, 2020
Country and Folk star Alison Krauss just announced a new tour for the first half of 2020. The Grammy Award winner’s announcement has sparked quite a bit of excitement amongst her fans, and tickets are already hot items. Right now, shows are scheduled for only the Eastern half of the U.S. We fully expect there to be a Western half announcement coming in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes and ears open for more concert news from Krauss in the near future. The new tour officially kicks off on April 26th in Peoria, Illinois. There are a handful of concert dates planned ahead of then if you’re really impatient to see her. Krauss loves to perform live and this current tour will be in support of her newest album, titled Windy City. Make sure you grab tickets early so you don’t miss out on this opportunity to see Alison Krauss perform live.
The Used: January 21st – February 22nd, 2020
The Used kick off a new tour in late January of 2020 for a handful of shows in major cities around the U.S. Some of these include New York, Portland, OR, Sacramento, and Pittsburgh, PA. The Alt Rockers have been a major fixture in heavy rock since they debuted back in 2001. Since then, they have grown a cult-like following of fans, only growing in popularity in the almost two decades since then. In a time when bands come and go, The Used have been one of the big consistent forces in alternative rock. The group hasn’t put out a new album since 2017, and a lot of their fans think that this mini-tour is a way to help build up anticipation for a new album later in 2020. We will need to wait and see. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy their music in the meantime. Grab tickets now so you don’t miss out on a chance to see The Used live. Head over to our listings page to see what’s available now.
Brian Fallon: March 12th – April 4th, 2020
Lead singer of The Gaslight Anthem, Brian Fallon, just announced a new solo tour for 2020. He will be hitting up 7 cities during this time, including Buffalo, Houston, Nashville, and Atlanta, just to name a few. Fallon has released a few solo albums in between his time recording with The Gaslight Anthem and his other band, The Horrible Crowes. If you’ve never seen the rocker perform, this is a good opportunity to do so. You’ve heard his music and seeing him live will only compliment that experience. Fallon does have a new album coming out in 2020 called Local Honey. This tour is a big part of that album release. If things go well, we should expect to hear a lot more from him—in one form or another. Get your tickets soon so you don’t miss Brian Fallon on stage in the Spring!
Thomas Rhett: April 24th – August 29th, 2020
Country star Thomas Rhett is headed out on the road for the Spring and Summer of 2020. Rhett has already had an accomplished career, and it’s just starting out compared to a lot of his Country peers. His album Center Point Road hit #1 on the charts when it was released earlier in 2019 which helped him launch to a place of popularity. This promises to be a huge tour as a result of this. Tickets will sell out to a lot of these shows, so the sooner you get yours, the better off you will be. Make sure you don’t miss out on this tour—it’s going to be amazing!
Other Artists to Watch
Country sensation Kenny Chesney will be continuing his tour well into 2020. He has been a huge concert draw over the last several years, and his ongoing set of shows have not been an exception here.
Classic Rock legends, the Doobie Brothers, have a few shows scheduled for this summer. This band has been epic over the years, and while they may be getting older, they still know how to rock out.
