What was the last amazing concert you went to? If it’s been too long to remember, or it’s simply time to make new memories, we have you covered. Every Friday we post a list of the biggest new concert tickets and event announcements from music, theater and sports.
This week we’re covering several new concert tours and a host of pro wrestling events. So without further ado, let’s jump in!
2017 Ed Sheeran Tour
Sheeran starts his North American tour June 29 in Kansas City before crisscrossing the country from Philly to Tacoma, and from LA to Miami. He’ll wrap up October 6 in Nashville. This won’t be the only place you can see Ed Sheeran this summer. He has an upcoming guest appearance on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Why? Actress Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is a huge Sheeran fan and the producers wanted to surprise her.
Florida Georgia Line & Backstreet Boys
We spotlighted Florida Georgia Line’s collaboration with Backstreet Boys a few weeks ago and speculated they might tour together. Guess what: It’s happening. Their song, “God, Your Mama, and Me” is on FGL’s new album, Smooth. The band’s 2017 Smooth Stadium Tour is hitting MLB stadiums like Fenway, Wrigley and Target Field. You can also see FGL with Nelly and Chris Lane on their amphitheater tour stops.
Boston’s Hyper Space Tour
Classic rock icons Boston will launch their Hyper Space Tour on April 14, circling the southeast before spreading out to the rest of the country. Joan Jett will join them starting at Shoreline Amphitheater in June and tour with them through the end of July.
Paul Simon 2017 Tour
Sticking with the legends, Paul Simon has 16 new concerts on sale. He’ll be playing amphitheaters around the country this June. His latest album, Stranger to Stranger, was his biggest hit in 30 years. His run kicks off June 1 at St. Augustine Amphitheatre, hits up Chicago and Cleveland before finishing in the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver.
Hanson 25th Anniversary Tour
Hanson is old enough for a 25th anniversary tour. We’ll let that sink in for a moment.
It was 20 years ago that their earworm, “MMMBop,” invaded radios everywhere and hit number one in an astonishing 27 countries. It was first released on a demo in 1996 before being re-worked for the band’s first studio album, Middle of Nowhere. To get the original rock version of MMMBop you’ll need to find their 3 Car Garage album or the MMMBop demo.
