The cranking up of the onsales continues this week. First up: a bunch of Friday onsales for The Lumineers, who announced a fall tour on Tuesday. The 23-date tour begins on September 15 at Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Morrison, CO, and ends on October 20 at Sunset Cove Amphitheater in Boca Raton, FL. Nathaniel Rateliff and Dr. Dog will join the band on most tour dates.
It's been a great year for the indie folk group. Its self-titled debut album, which was released in April 2012 to mostly positive reviews, was nominated for two Billboard Awards for Top New Artist and Top Rock Artist and two Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Americana Album. They've also been tearing it up on the road on tour and appearing on the festival circuit. Additionally, they also opened for the Dave Matthews Band during its 2012 tour.
After announcing its return earlier this year, Nine Inch Nails is continuing its revival with the revelation of tour dates for its first outing in four years. As first reported by Billboard this morning, the U.S. dates for "Nine Inch Nails: Tension 2013" kick off on September 28 in St. Paul, MN, and end on November 22 in Seattle, WA.
The last year has been a busy one for Trent Reznor and company. The first concerts on the tour come few weeks after the release of NIN's ninth studio album, Hesitation Marks, which is the band's first since 2008. That year, the band released not one, but two albums: the massive four-disc Ghosts I-IV and the more traditionally-sized The Slip. The new record also marks the end of Reznor's experimentation with independent distribution, after he famously and very publicly left Interscope Records after releasing Year Zero in 2007. Reportedly, he discovered that going indy had more drawbacks than it initially seemed.
