on the road again…

February 28, 2013

This week has brought a heap of my favorite kind of news – tour announcements!

Bob Dylan has announced a full April calendar of Northeast and upper Midwest dates with supporting act Dawes. I can only hope (and pretty safely assume) that there will be more dates added to this, my favorite never-ending tour.

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers will be out for a May/June run in between studio work  on their new album. The bulk of the shows will be in two residencies – one at New York’s Beacon Theater and the other at Fonda Auditorium in Los Angeles. Between those two week-long stints Tom and the boys will be headlining Bonnaroo and playing a smattering of festival gigs and random Midwestern cities (Minneapolis included, so I’m not complaining)

The Milk Carton Kids will be hitting the road this spring in support of their forthcoming album The Ash & Clay. The album is set for a March 26th release and their tour kicks off with a leg of European dates in April. If you still haven’t seen them live (despite all my prodding) this spring would be an excellent time to do so.

In other tour news, I’m pretty resolved on making it to the Bob Seger show here in Minneapolis in a couple of weeks. Can’t say I’m all that thrilled about Kid Rock co-headlining but I haven’t ever seen Bob Seger live so I kind of can’t miss it.

Also, Eric Clapton has told Rolling Stone that he’s planning to stop touring when he turns 70, which gives us all just about two more years, so it might be wise to catch one of his arena shows this spring as well.

Still no word from the Stones on a 2013 tour, but I remain optimistic. Robert Plant hinted recently that he may be open to a Led Zeppelin reunion next year, needless to say… that has to happen.

How about y’all? Any tours you’re dying to catch?
