Concert news

Luke Bryan will head out on his sixth annual farm tour, starting Oct. 1 in Knoxville, TN. The tour spans eight shows across the south, hitting states like Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina.

The fall concert series has become tradition for the country singer, who performed to more than 100,000 fans during last year's farm tour. A portion of each show's proceeds are used for local college scholarships, which are then awarded to students from farm families within the local communities.

If you're in Chicago or the surrounding areas, get ready to buy your tickets because you're up tomorrow. Of course, if you're anywhere else in the country, you're going to have to wait.

So hold tight, Garth fans who live outside Chicagoland or don't want to travel there, because your day is coming!

Artists joining Brooks in onsales in the coming days include Brantley Gilbert, Dierks Bentley, Iggy Azalea, and holiday favorite Mannheim Steamroller.

Meanwhile, the brand new Broadway production of Aladdin has additional dates going on sale Monday. The 32 new shows start in January 2015. Other theater shows on sale include Cirque du Soleil: Dralion and Phantom of the Opera.

Over in sports, pro football teams continue to put their home games on sale. This Friday, the Arizona Cardinals have eight games on sale, the Baltimore Ravens have 10, and the St. Louis Rams have 16. Finally, the WWE has 19 of its various shows up for grabs.

If you've been singing nothing but "Fancy" and "Rude" for the last few weeks, you're in luck: rapper Iggy Azalea will team up with Magic! — no doubt to capitalize on the success of their summer hits — in a fall performance in Rochester, MI. Tickets for the show at Meadow Brook Music Festival on Sept. 12 go on sale Monday. Other concerts on sale this weekend include "Bottoms Up" singer Brantley Gilbert; Jason Mraz, who just released a new album called "Yes!"; and Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull.

In theater shows, as Cirque du Soleil Dralion prepares for its return to the U.S., dozens of performances go on sale on Friday. The touring acrobatic show, which draws inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its quest for balance between humans and nature, will visit cities like Charlottesville, VA; Albany, NY; and Wilkes-Barre, PA. Meanwhile, Broadway shows such as The Book of Mormon, Wicked, Pippin, and Motown the Musical offer onsales for their traveling tours.

But it's undoubtedly the NFL that steals the show this week. With tickets to see the Colts, Seahawks, and Vikings on sale this weekend, we're reminded of that time of year everyone's waiting for: football season. We're just 49 days away from kick-off. Not that we're counting.

Garth Brooks Announces Details of 2014 World Tour

Concert news

Garth Brooks is back! It's been 14 years since country singer Garth Brooks officially retired and, although he's performed shows off and on, this time — with his kids all grown up, with a second chance at a career — he's back with plans for new music and a world tour.

The singer announced yesterday that his upcoming world tour will kick off Sept. 4 in Chicago, IL (technically Rosemont, IL). He'll be joined by his wife and fellow country singer Trisha Yearwood.

These details came only after lots and lots of anticipation. For the rest of the tour dates, the world will have to wait, as each city will get its own special announcement (similar to Chicago) until details of the entire tour are finally released.

Brooks, who was previously hesitant about wading into the "digital age," is certainly savoring every moment of his long-anticipated return to the music scene. In fact, the hype surrounding Garth Brooks' comeback started back in December when he made an appearance on "Good Morning America." He was supposed to simply be promoting his new album; instead, he sat down with anchor Robin Roberts and confirmed he'd be doing a world tour in 2014.

Then came the press conference, which took place late last week. During it, he spoke about the Ireland debacle (which we covered a bit on Friday), confirmed a new album come Winter 2014 (which will be available digitally, a first for Brooks), as well as new music as early as the end of the month.

But he was coy about details of his world tour. Instead, Brooks said, come July 14, he'd be reaching out to his longtime fan Andy from Atlanta to give him the scoop on where and when the upcoming tour would kick off. Brooks stayed true; yesterday, Brooks and Andy announced when the tour will begin. Today, through a succinct message on his site, the world received word that each of Brooks' tour dates would receive the same type of announcement.

So we wait. But hey, we waited 14 years; what's a few more days, right?

As more dates/cities are announced, we'll add them below, so be sure to check below and visit the Garth Brooks for more information on tickets!


KISS Confirms Las Vegas Residency in November

Concert news

Celebrating 40 years in music, KISS has announced a Las Vegas residency that runs from Wednesday, Nov. 5 to Sunday, Nov. 23 at The Joint, a venue inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Performances begin at 8 p.m.

It's the first-ever residency for the rock 'n' roll icons, who will perform music that spans their vast four-decade career. In an interview with USA Today, KISS guitarist Paul Stanley spoke of the Vegas shows and said, "Whatever you're used to with KISS, this will pump it up that much more. If KISS is on steroids, this is a double dose."

The residency will likely incorporate some of the elements from the band's current stage setup, which is used during the tour they're co-headling with Def Leppard. But it won't be the same, they said; fans who attend the KISS/Def Leppard tour would still have things to look forward to during the band's Vegas set.

See below for a selection of tour dates and visit the KISS for more information on tickets.
