Who is on tour this summer? If you don’t know, you’re now in the right place to find out. Here, we keep an updated list on the newest concert announcements, along with updates to current tours. The goal is to let you know as soon as possible when concerts are announced so that you can stay ahead of the game and ensure that you can get the seats that you want at the show you want to see.
These concert announcements are all from the last week. Feel free to check out older announcements for other upcoming shows, along with our ticket listings so that you can get exactly the tickets that you are looking for.
Danny Gokey: April 30th – November 17th, 2019
Danny Gokey became a household name when he finished in the Top 3 of the popular show, American Idol. Today, he is well known for his Christian music. But despite the niche market that he performs in, he has received a lot of radio time on mainstream pop and rock stations, too. The announcement of new concert dates is a continuation of the ongoing Hope Encounter tour, but thanks to the huge amount of success that Gokey has seen, an extension has been added onto it. Originally, Riley Clemmons and Tauren Wells were tagging along on the tour with Gokey. There’s no word yet whether or not these guests will be performing on the new tour dates.
Interpol: May 1st – October 6th, 2019
Interpol is an alt-rock band that has hit it big. Based out of New York, this group just announced that they will be extending their Marauder tour, with a bunch of dates that will feature alternative legend, Morrissey. Marauder was released in August of 2019 and has seen a good deal of commercial success. With songs like “Pioneer to the Falls” and “Success,” Interpol typically plays both new and older songs during their sets. The tour will start out in Colorado and work its way east across the U.S. Starting in around September, they will start working their way back to the Western portion of the country before heading over to Europe for the late fall. Some of the shows they are playing will be held at smaller venues, so be sure to move fast to guarantee yourself tickets.
Leela James: May 17th – July 18, 2019
Leela James just announced a new tour, called Are You Ready? The tour kicks on in June, but she does have a handful of dates that she will be performing before the official tour gets underway. James is well known for her R&B sound and has performed with some other big names in the past. There’s no official word yet on who will be opening up for James on this tour, but it promises to be a big event. Tickets will almost be guaranteed to sell out for most of these shows. If you’re having a hard time finding good seats, feel free to check out our listings to help save yourself some time and money. Her tour focuses mostly on the East Coast, but other tour stops do extend further west.
Dwight Yoakam: May 10th – September 20th, 2019
Country music legend Dwight Yoakam is currently getting ready for a massive North American tour, and a whole bunch of new tour dates have just been added to the lineup. This is definitely good news if you’re planning on going to see him because it means that there will be more tickets available. Still, if you wait until the last minute, this could be one of those shows where there will be an extreme shortage of good seats as it gets closer and closer to the day of the show. The tour is in support of Yoakam’s newest album, Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars. Even though this album was originally released in 2016, it’s still getting a lot of attention because it is Yoakam’s 20th studio album. This promises to be an exciting tour.
Eric Clapton: September 11th – September 21st, 2019
Clapton is one of the biggest names ever to come out of rock and roll. Although he announced retiring a few years ago, Clapton seems only to have slowed down on the number of shows he plays per year. This is a very brief tour–only 11 days and five shows long–but you can bet that every single venue will sell out. These dates are mainly on the West Coast, with a couple shows in Texas to wrap it up. He has a number of classic rock hits that still receive considerable play time on the radio, including “Layla,” “Cocaine,” and “After Midnight.” If you’ve never seen Clapton play before, this might be your last chance. He is an epic performer and this promises to be a lot of fun.
