Take advantage of the chance to see four iconic musicians, Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Buffett, Barry Gibb, and Lionel Richie, perform live renditions of legendary hits during each of their respective tours in 2014.
New Jersey’s pride and joy Bruce Springsteen released “High Hopes,” his 18th studio album, on Jan. 14. The record—which features only covers or re-recorded versions of existing songs—reached the No. 1 slot in more than a dozen countries. On Feb. 10, Springsteen confirmed he would return to the U.S. touring circuit from April 8-May 18 with 15 new concert dates around the country, primarily stopping in cities he did not visit during the massive 2012-13 Wrecking Ball World Tour. Springsteen and his E Street Band also will be headlining at the New Orleans Jazz Festival on May 3.
Jimmy Buffett has been a tireless touring artist for decades, and he’ll continue to treat Parrotheads around the country to live performances of hits like “Margaritaville” and “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” when he launches his This One’s For You Tour in April 2014. The shows will pick up where his last tour, named after the 2013 album “Songs from St. Somewhere,” left off. Currently, Buffett has only announced 12 performances in the U.S. from April through July, but the singer is notorious for sporadically announcing new tour dates as the performances approach.
The last surviving member of the Bee Gees, Barry Gibb announced on Jan. 27 that he would bring his ongoing Mythology Tour to the U.S. this summer. The trek takes its name from the four-disc Bee Gees compilation set that was originally released in 2010, and it is intended to honor the immeasurable musical contributions of his three late brothers: Robin, Maurice, and Andy. The tour has been ongoing around the world since Feb. 2013, but it will finally land in the U.S. on May 15 and visit at least six cities through June.
After a successful round of fall dates with his All the Hits All Night Long Tour in 2013, Lionel Richie confirmed he would extend the greatest hits venture into 2014. The Commodores frontman will be performing in more than 30 cities in North America from May 29-Aug. 2 with support from Cee Lo Green. The GRAMMY Award winner also has plans to headline New Orleans’ Essence Music Festival along with Prince and Mary J. Blige this summer. The festival will take place over Fourth of July weekend, July 4-6.
