Artists Currently On Tour
The artists below are traversing the globe and selling out venues. From country music's biggest outsider to everyone's favorite 90's band, here are the current tours to look out for:
"Scar Tissue" and "Californication" are ringing from indoor venues across the country. Red Hot Chili Peppers are touring through the beginning half of 2017. "The Getaway World Tour" began in January and is nowhere close to slowing down. Red Hot Chili Peppers are touring in support of their 2016 album The Getaway. Therefore, fans' reviews hint that the band is playing the good, old hits as well as new music. "The Getaway World Tour" finishes in Italy in early July. See Flea and the rest of the band rock out live.
Twenty One Pilots are fresh off of their first Grammy win for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. After accepting the award in their underwear and revealing the sentimental reason behind it, the duo is not taking a celebratory break. Twenty One Pilots continue their "Emotional Roadshow World Tour" with Judah and the Lion through the beginning of March. It concludes in Kentucky on March 5th. The "Emotional Roadshow World Tour" is in support of their 2015 album Blurryface that sparked multiple radio hits such as "Stressed Out," and "Ride." The duo also released a song for the Suicide Squad soundtrack titled "Heathens." Twenty One Pilots are known for their extremely performative concert style. The two wear masks and use other props to constantly entertain their audiences. It takes the innovative sides of touring to another level, and it is metaphorically reflected in their character "Blurryface" that represents the insecurities and anxieties we all battle with inside ourselves.
Garth Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood keep adding concerts to his “Garth Brooks World Tour!" The couple released Christmas Together in late 2016, and they have tour dates scheduled throughout a chunk of 2017. Brooks and Yearwood schedule stints in certain cities and take breaks in between. This is opposed to different cities every night like many other tours. This way, the couple travels less but still performs a large number of concerts.
Brooks released Gunslinger in 2016, his first original album in years. Therefore, upcoming concerts can expect to be a range of old fan favorites and newer material. Just when you think he's ready to take a break, Brooks adds another stint to the tour. Keep checking back to see if he adds a venue near you!
Eric Church is not like many other male country artists. Faithful to his true self and his current state of mind, Church produces music that isn't fake or for just radio attention. In addition, his "Holdin' My Own Tour" is truly sticking to its name. He's holdin' his own, touring with no opening acts. He will play two full sets each night, so fans are truly receiving their money's worth of a Church show. The "Holdin' My Own Tour" concludes at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena in May.
Church has been known to diss "bro country," or country music created by older singers who produce party music unrelated to their real lives. It is an attempt to pump life into their careers, as party country hits are classic radio gold. Church despises the idea that producing music just for the success of it is worthwhile. His 2015 album Mr. Misunderstood received critical acclaim, and hits such as "Mr. Misunderstood" and "Kill A Word" came from the album.
