August 14, 2012

It’s time to start recruiting your friends because you’re going to need a lot of help making shirts and posters to support your favorite artists! No matter what kind of music you prefer, artists of every genre are getting ready to go on tour and I have a feeling these are concerts you won’t want to miss!

Justin Bieber Believe Tour

This is by far the most anticipated tour of the year and honestly, I don’t think anyone is surprised by that! But according to Justin Bieber himself, fans will be surprised by what he has in store for this tour! The entire North American leg of the tour sold out in one hour; both Madison Square Garden shows sold out in 30 seconds. That’s two nights in a 20,000 person capacity arena, 40,000 tickets completely sold out faster than you can microwave popcorn. The Believe tour begins September 29, 2012 in Glendale, Arizona and goes until April 26, 2013 in Helsinki, Finland but rumor has it that more dates will be added, Justin’s making sure he covers every inch of the world! When asked about what can be expected on this tour, Bieber has hinted to a lot more surprises, magic, a more mature vibe and a few Bieber classics. Justin also has said that he is getting a lot of inspiration from old Michael Jackson tours and there will definitely be a few connections between the King of Pop and Justin but there will still be the acoustic vibe. While The Wanted hasn’t been confirmed to be touring with Justin, Carly Rae Jepsen will definitely be opening for the eighteen-year old. Justin is also ready to bring a fan on the road; he’s holding online dance auditions so make sure you get your videos submitted! Get your purple shirts ready and rest your voice because Justin Bieber is coming to a city near you!

Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away Tour

The winner of American Idol’s season four is back with her fourth album titled “Blown Away” and she’s ready to take this album on the road! Carrie has been quoted many times saying that being on the stage is the greatest feeling for her, so I can only imagine how happy she is to be back! The North American leg of the tour kicks off on September 14th in Manchester, New Hampshire and ends on December 22nd in Sunrise, Florida. Carrie is donating $1of every ticket sold from the North American leg to support the Red Cross disaster relief. Twenty-one year old Hunter Hayes, known for songs such as “Storm Warning” and “Wanted”, will be opening for the Oklahoma native and this is one countrified show you won’t want to miss!


Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” Tour

Sticking  with the American Idol family, season  one winner Kelly Clarkson is back on tour with The Fray. While the tour has  already started, 30 cities were just added to the lineup, which is set to end  on October 20th in London’s Wembley Arena. The first leg of the tour  was so successful that they needed to add more dates. Kelly is also set to perform for American troops at Fort Campbell. Reviews from this tour make it  very clear that there are no dull moments and everyone should make the effort to go to a show!

With the  holidays right around the corner, what better gift for your parents than  concert tickets to artists who were popular when they were teenagers? They  watch you fall in love with your favorite artist, so wouldn’t it only be right  to let them relive their childhood memories?

The United States leg of  the tour begins August 28, 2012 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and ends on  November 17th in Atlanta, Georgia. More dates are apparently going  to be added but for now, you’d be better off getting your parents an early  holiday gift!

The Who Quadrophenia Tour

The 1964  English rock band The Who is back again and coming on a 37 date tour which just  so happens to be their first North American tour in four years.
