Motley Crue: July 7th – September 5th, 2020
Rockers Motley Crue just announced a new tour for the Summer of 2020. This legendary group of musicians have been one of the biggest names in rock since they hit the scene back in the early 80s. They will be kicking things off in Florida and then have a few shows on the East Coast, including cities like Charlotte and Orlando. Then they head out West, playing in San Francisco and San Diego before they head back East. This is going to be one of the biggest shows of the summer without a doubt and tickets will sell out at a lot of these venues. Check our listings for tickets so that you don’t miss out on available seats.
Maroon 5: December 30th, 2019 – September 17th, 2020
Maroon 5 just announced an epic, 40-city tour for a good chunk of 2020. Fronted by Adam Levine, Maroon 5 has been a big name in rock, especially after Levine spent time as a judge on the ever-popular singing competition show, The Voice. He’s back with his band, and ready to hit up your city. Check out our listings page to see which dates will be closest so you don’t miss out on your chance to see the band live and on stage. Maroon 5 will be joined by Leon Bridges and Meghan Trainor for much, if not all, of this upcoming tour. In the past, Maroon 5 has been well known for selling shows out, and we don’t expect this tour to be any different. Get your tickets soon so you don’t miss your shot to see Maroon 5.
Pitbull: February 7th – April 17th, 2020
Pitbull just announced a small North American tour promoting his newest album, Libertad 548. The album came out in late September and has gained enough momentum on the charts that a U.S. tour is no surprise on our end. The Latin rapper has a large fan following—enough that Sirius XM radio has given him an entire station named after him. The current tour announcement is actually a lot smaller than what a lot of Pitbull fans were expecting, but it’s not likely to stay that way. Right now, it’s just at eight cities, with only one East Coast show on the schedule. If the tour is as popular as experts believe it will be, we should expect a new set of dates to be announced in the near future. For now, you will need to make sure that you act fast if any of these shows are near you. Tickets will sell out, and availability will be limited. Head over to our listings page now to see what’s available.
Brittany Howard: March 17th – May 1st, 2020
Lead singer of Alabama Shakes, Brittany Howard, just let drop a batch of solo concert dates for Spring 2020. The new tour has 15 dates scheduled for now and is in support of her first solo album, titled Jaime. Additionally, Howard will be playing at a couple of festivals, including the High Water Festival in Charleston, South Carolina. The blues-rocker has a reputation for phenomenal live shows, including cover songs that you normally wouldn’t expect to hear in her bluesy style. She’s won four Grammy Awards over the years, and her solo music brings a lot of excitement and creativity that you don’t see when she’s playing with her band. Be sure to check out our listings to see if Brittany Howard will be playing near you. Grab tickets now to make sure you don’t miss out on your shot to see her live.
