Summer concert season is heating up — and so are new ticket sales. This week, a multitude of top artists announced additions to existing tours, with major shows being added by Harry Styles, Amos Lee, The Weekend and Iron & Wine. So, what do these artists have to offer? Let’s take a look at each of their upcoming performances to uncover the memorable moments that await.
Late Breaking: Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather
This just in: UFC champion Conor McGregor will fight boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. on August 26 in Las Vegas. This will be a boxing match, not an ultimate fighting competition, meaning McGregor will be competing under a completely different sent of rules than he’s used to. They’re set for 12 rounds at a pre-determined weight of 154 pounds. The match will be at T-Mobile Arena.
Harry Styles is adding even more shows to his hot-selling “Live On Tour” agenda. The former One Direction announced 21 new shows this week, and that’s on top of the 56 additions he announced last week.
Following the release of his “Sign of the Times” single, fans can expect the newly solo performer to make the case as to why he’s worthy of stand-alone fame. A break away from One Direction, this is Styles’ first solo album — and considering the growing number of shows being booked, old (and new) fans are clearly interested in what he has to say… and sing.
Folk lovers, do you have your Amos Lee tickets yet? The eclectic musician made a name for himself after opening for iconic musicians like Paul Simon, Jack Johnson, Bob Dylan, The Avett Brothers and Adele, among others.
Now a star in his own right (with more than six albums), Amos Lee is preparing for his upcoming tour, which kicks off July 13 in Butte Garden, Salt Lake City. From there, he has shows planned at indoor and outdoor venues throughout North America. He’s wrapping it up Nov. 11 at Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.
Iron & Wine
Sam Beam, also known as Iron & Wine, has become an icon among indy folk and jam band fans — now moving into the mainstream, tickets to his upcoming tour are a hot commodity among music fans of all ages. His music began to gain a wider audience when he was included in the Garden State movie soundtrack of 2004.
With five albums now under his belt, the native South Carolinian guitarist and vocalist (and banjoist, pianist, percussionist and bass player), is kicking off his tour June 29 in Canandaigua, New York. From there, he’ll wind around the U.S. for the summer and into the fall, wrapping up his tour Nov. 14 in Brooklyn Steel.
Everybody’s working for… The Weeknd. No, that’s not a typo — the Canadian hip hop star this week announced 26 new shows to his Starboy World Tour, otherwise known as the Legend of the Fall 2017 Arena Tour. The YouTube star turned famous in 2013 after he released “Kiss Land,” a single that rose to number 2 on the Billboard 200. Since then, he’s continued to climb the charts and please fans. In 2016, his “Earned It” single won Best R&B Performance at the Grammy Awards.
His upcoming tour comes on heels of the Starboy album release and kicks off June 17 in Dover, Delaware. After a series of shows throughout North America, it wraps up Nov. 2 in Chicago.
PAW Patrol Live!
In a step away from concerts, PAW Patrol Live! This week added a whopping 69 shows. So, if you’ve been dying to catch a live performance, now’s the time! As it states on its website, the upcoming shows are expected to be “PAWsome.” And if you haven’t figured out just yet, the performances are geared toward kids… of all ages. The musical performances are based on the preschool series PAW Patrol and include plenty of shenanigans as the PAW crew solves problems and learns life’s valuable lessons.
The PAW Patrol kicks off June 17 in El Paso, Texas. From there, they tour around the nation, wrapping it up January 13, 2018, in Omaha, Nebraska.
