There’s nothing more exciting than dressing up, heading downtown with friends with over-the-top makeup, and a sign that says “I LOVE YOU THROW ME A PICK.” And thanks to artists being free to tour again, that’s exactly what we get to do. But, with so many awesome concert options, how do we know who to pick? The OMGs multiply with each new announcement. Take our money. All of it, Mr. Concert Gods. We have places to go and people to fight on our way to barricade. But whose ticket stubs are getting added to our album this summer? The list grows each month tbh.
We have a huge update for you today, so let’s get into it! Here’s the newest tour news and artists we’re dying to see on the road.
BONNIE RAITT: Miss the chance to see this country legend in concert earlier this year? You’re in luck, because Bonnie is heading out to the midwest and West Coast later this summer, with Mavis Staples as a special guest. We delivered this news right in the ‘Nick of Time,’ right? So head on over here to get your tickets, then get ready for Bonnie to rock your world!
CLINTON KANE: It’s an exciting time to be a Clinton Kane stan! Between his debut album, MAYBE SOMEDAY IT’LL ALL BE OK, coming out on July 22nd and his tour tickets going up for general sale on July 15th, he’s keeping us fed with content as if it was ‘CHICKEN TENDIES.’ Why not turn your concert night into a fun evening with friends complete with some chicken for dinner? You have from September to December to see him, so don’t miss your chance to catch this show.
ECHOSMITH: ‘Get into My Car,’ we’re going to the Echosmith tour! Our favorite sibling trio are coming to a city near you (fingers crossed) and bringing their alt-pop magic with them on the Hang Around Tour. Band of Silver and Phoebe Ryan will also be hanging around on this tour, so you’ll get to see three amazing acts in one night! Check out Echosmith’s website for all the info you need for these incredible shows.
ENHYPEN: ‘Attention, please!’ They’ve taken over Korea. They’ve taken over our hearts. Now they’re taking over the world with their upcoming MANIFESTO Tour! ENHYPEN’s first world tour itinerary includes stops in South Korea, Japan, and the U.S. – if you’re in California, Georgia, Illinois, New York, or Texas, you can get ‘Blessed’ with tickets. But unfortunately, we’re a little ‘Cursed’ right now until they go on sale. Sorry, ENGENE besties!
GAVIN DEGRAW: This ‘Summertime’ might just be the ‘Greatest Of All Time,’ because Gavin DeGraw is kicking off his Face The River Tour in late August and we can’t wait. The Face The River album might just be his strongest work to date, so it’ll be awesome to see how the crowds connect with each song! Make sure you face the line to get tickets when they go live here on July 15th, or you’ll have to face some regret.
GAYLE: One of our favorite pop-rock sensations is finally heading out on the road on her avoiding college Tour, with special guests Carlie Hanson and poutyface! So much star power on one roster, we’re beyond ecstatic for this tour. You can grab tickets on GAYLE’s website starting on July 15th – we’ll race you there! Are you gonna go for row ‘a?’ Maybe ‘b?’ Or ‘c?’ ‘d?’ ‘e?’ ‘f?’ Row ‘u’ doesn’t sound too terrible either, there’s no such thing as a bad seat at a GAYLE concert.
KALUSH ORCHESTRA: Hailing from Ukraine, Kalush Orchestra first claimed their spot on the world stage when they won 2022 Eurovision. And now they’re using their worldwide recognition to change the world. A portion of all proceeds from their U.S. tour this fall will go to Ukrainian war relief efforts, and that’s even more impressive when you learn that they already raised over $1 million by auctioning memorabilia from their time on Eurovision. You can support their journey by picking up tickets right here!
KEEP FLYING: Look, friends, don’t let friends miss out on knowing an incredible artist before they hit the big time and get the recognition they deserve. So that’s why we’re giving you a heads-up that Keep Flying are gonna keep flying higher and higher in the next few years! First stop: their jam-packed summer full of solo shows as well as slots opening for Bowling For Soup, Less Than Jake, and Shakeout. Does that sound like something you wanna miss? No! So head on over here to check out the dates.
ROSALÍA: The reigning queen of Latin pop is taking her talents to fifteen countries this year, including Spain, Mexico, the U.S., and Belgium! Her MOTOMAMI World Tour is electrifying and powerful, bringing together her all-time biggest hits and her most recent fan-favorite tracks for a 30-song show full of magic. This tour is gonna be sweeter than ‘CANDY,’ so don’t miss your chance to get tickets right here.
SET IT OFF: Set It Off‘s live shows are ‘As Good As It Gets,’ so you won’t wanna miss out when they set off on the second part of their Welcome To Elsewhere Tour in the next few months! But not only are they giving us headlining shows, but they’re also playing four shows in August with Simple Plan and Sum 41. So many rock legends in one night! Find out all the details you need to know right here.
SHAWN MENDES: Shawn is teaming up with Disney+ for his Wonder Tour this summer, with which he’ll be using his voice for so many good causes! Throughout the tour, he’ll be visiting children’s hospitals and seeing which of the patients’ wishes he can grant, raising awareness for climate change, encouraging fans to bring their own reusable water bottles, and more. The first few weeks of shows got postponed to give Shawn some time for his mental health – another important cause he’s vocal about – but there’s so much fun to be had with this tour, Mendes Army! Join in and browse tickets here.
Wow, what a roster! We can’t speak for anyone but ourselves, but if we don’t see you at these shows, we’re writing your name down in our burn book. We didn’t deliver you this tour news for our health, you know. And, until then, we’ll see you on YouTube obsessively watching live videos of our faves and working out in training for racing you to barricade (we’re going to win).
