Some of the big shows have already shown up in the weekend top 10 lists like Phish, New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys, Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney. As always, any kind of outdoor festival like the Vans Warped Tour and Bamboozle has strong appeal.
Other hot tours include the American Idols Live!, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Mumford & Sons, Taylor Swift.
The American Idols Live! Tour features current winner Scotty McCreery and his country music counterpart and 1st runner up, Lauren Alaina. This show will showcase the top 11 contestants of the 10th season, also including Haley Reinhart, James Durbin, Jacob Lusk, Casey Abrams, Stefano Langone, Paul Mcdonald, Pia Toscano, Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia. This is a 47 date tour and will start in Utah on July 6th and end in New York on September 10th.
Britney Spears and her Femme Fatale tour have hit the pavement strong. Her fan base is exceptionally loyal and is coming in droves to see her. Her latest album debuted at the number one spot on the Billboard Charts, making her the first and only female artist to ever have six number one debut albums. Nicki Minaj is Britney’s current opening act, after there was a last minute drop out of Latin hunk, Enrique Iglesias. Her shows are always a spectacle.
The newly minted Mrs. Russell Brand is another pop concert that is sure to not disappoint. Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream tour is fun and poppy and always catchy. She is sure to sing her chart topping songs like “Teenage Dream”, “California Gurls” and her recent hit “Firework.” Her tour runs from June 7th in Atlanta, GA until August 14th in Santa Barbara, CA.
Mumford & Sons is another show that people are exceptionally anxious to get their hands on. Tickets are usually hard to come because they typically only ever play small, intimate venues. As of March 2011, their current album, Sigh No More, has sold over 1, 00,000 copies in the both the United States and the United Kingdom. This is a band to keep your eye on.
Taylor Swift announced her current tour, Speak Now, back in December 2010. Regardless, this concert is still very much a hot topic. Ms. Swift has a very strong and broad fan base. Her music style that combines pop and country makes her very appealing.
