On Tuesday KISS and Mötley Crüe announced the tour dates for the double-headlining tour they're going on this summer, named simply "The Tour." It's the first time the two metal heavyweights are sharing a stage since 1982. At the time KISS was in turmoil as Ace Frehley had just left the band, and their Creatures of the Night Tour had poor attendance in the United States following years of pop-heavy albums. Mötley Crüe, meanwhile, was an upstart that had formed the previous year. Over the course of thirty years, KISS has toured both with and without its makeup, and Mötley Crüe has become a world famous act in its own right.
The Tour is currently slated to run from July 20 to September 23, with at least 40 shows by the time all is said and done. For Mötley Crüe, it'll be the second year in a row they tour as a co-headliner. Last year they toured with Poison and New York Dolls. The current average ticket price for The Tour is $254*.
The U.S. tour dates are listed below. Visit the KISS and Mötley Crüe page to buy tickets.
Yep, it's true, The Boss is headed out on the road once again. He teased it back in November but now the details are here. The reason for and timing of it is no surprise, of course, as the tour begins just after his new album Wrecking Ball comes out on March 6 (embedded above is its first single, "We Take Care of Our Own"). But fans will surely be happy to see Bruce again. Though he's had a few one- or two-off concerts over the past couple years, the last time he had an extensive set of dates was in 2009.
The tour will begin on March 18 in Atlanta, GA, and will end on May 2 in Newark, NJ. It's currently slated to have 19 dates, including a set at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on April 29. There's no word yet on the set list, but it's safe to assume it will include at least some songs from the new album, along with classic Springsteen hits. The tour dates are below.

If you were looking forward to seeing the Red Hot Chili Peppers next week, there's some bad news.

Ever since the news was released last week that Van Halen is going back on tour with original lead man David Lee Roth, and that this lineup is recording a new album, the Internet has practically been buzzing with excitement about it. Well, more information is here at last! Late last night the band finally released the tour dates during a highly anticipated performance at New York City's Cafe Wha?.
The tour begins on February 18 at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, KY, and ends on June 26 at the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, LA. There will be forty-five concerts by the time everything is said and done...so far, at least. Jazz, funk, and soul band Kool & the Gang will join Van Halen on certain dates. From the press release, it appears the set list will include some songs from the new album as well as a cross-section of hits from throughout the band's history.
Cirque du Soleil has a history of creating shows around specific themes, including musical artists like The Beatles. In that vein, they've designed a brand-new spectacle to honor Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, in Michael Jackson The Immortal. Buzz has been building for over a year, but the tour's finally about to launch!
