It's the beginning of another year, and that means it's time to predict all the artists and bands we think will tour during the year. Of course, many acts already have planned tours coming up, but you can be sure that there will be at least another four or five that announce them in the coming months. In particular, the months after June are looking pretty empty at this point, and will need plenty of acts to fill them up.

We think there is a pretty decent chance that the following five artists and bands will tour this year.

U2

The Rationale: Over the last decade or so, U2 has seemed to have a pretty reliable four to five year gap between albums, and three to four year gap between their tours. Well, 2014 is exactly the right number of years for the next album to come out and the next tour to be announced. To be exact, the end of 2014 is at the lower end of the gap, so I wouldn't at all be surprised to see a tour announcement by the end of the year, if not the first dates of that tour.

Besides, what do they have to lose? Nothing, that's what. U2 is always an extremely popular touring act, and the previous 360° Tour was the highest-grossing tour ever. So come on U2: don't leave us waiting for much longer!

This week, it was announced that comedians (and pals) Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David are hard at work on a Broadway play. The reveal comes after Seinfeld did a Q&A on Reddit where he hinted at a "big, huge, gigantic project" he was working on. According to new reports, David has already written a play, and it's possible Seinfeld will star, direct, produce, or be involved in the production in some way.

Seinfeld has previous Broadway experience. In 2011, he produced and directed Colin Quinn's one-man show, Long Story Short (which later went on to be shown on HBO). Similarly, Seinfeld and David have worked closely together on various projects over the years, including "Seinfeld" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

Although nothing has been confirmed just yet, the possibility is still pretty exciting for most Seinfeld/David fans, who have been eagerly awaiting their next project. Would you see a play involving these two comedians?
