This summer is a vacation of concerts, albums, and comebacks. From Weezer to Dua Lipa, your favorite artists are pulling no punches when it comes to setting up gig after gig. Many of these artists are doing their second North American run, while others such as Lorde are doing their first American-based tour ever.
Even some classics are coming back, much to your parents’ delight. Def Leppard and Journey are teaming up for a tour while Elton John is beginning his final farewell, lasting until 2021. Seems he’s not as ready to retire as he says he is.
Every genre is getting a turn in the spotlight, which might make it hard to pick and choose what favorite band you absolutely need to see.
Maybe you’ll even create a vast and convoluted chart of how to optimize your summer to the best of your music consuming capacity.
