    Tour Announcement

    With so many great summer tours underway, it’s not always easy to hit them all. Fortunately, many of your favorite artists have already lined up return trips and new stops for the fall and winter months.

    On July 24, Phish announced a string of fall dates that will kick off this October with a three-night spree at the Hampton Coliseum (Oct. 18-20). The group will then head to Rochester, N.Y. (Oct 22), Glens Falls, N.Y. (Oct. 23), two nights at Worcester, Mass. (Oct. 25-26), Hartford, Conn. (Oct. 27), and Reading, Pa. (Oct. 29).

    The quirky jam band will close out the short fall trip with three consecutive dates at the Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall. These three shows (Oct. 31-Nov. 2) are scheduled to serve as the group’s ever-popular Halloween performances—the first in three years. These typically feature Phish in a “musical costume,” performing part of their set as another band for an entire album of the costumed group’s music. Past performances have featured Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of the Moon” and The Beatles’ self-titled album (better known as the “White Album”).

    Thanks to overwhelming demand for her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, Beyoncé also added several winter dates to extend her North American tour. The current leg runs through Aug. 5, but the new series will add an extra 14 concert dates to her schedule beginning in Vancouver on Nov. 30. Fans are expecting a new album soon, but if the latest news is any indication, it will still be awhile before Beyoncé releases anything substantial.

    This year has proven to be a successful one for in-demand musicians Bon Jovi and Pink, who both also added extra North American dates after the success of their original tour runs. The Bon Jovi trek—named after the group’s latest album, “Because We Can”—added 12 performances from Oct. 2 – Nov. 8. Meanwhile, the second North American leg of Pink’s The Truth About Love Tour will visit several repeat cities and new stops from its launch at Oakland’s Oracle Arena (Oct. 10) to its close at Atlanta’s Philips Arena (Dec. 14).

    Earlier this year, pop megastar Justin Timberlake announced a new album and solo tour to come this fall. Timberlake is currently making the rounds with Jay Z on his Legends of the Summer Tour, so his solo dates will start Oct. 31 in Montreal and run through Feb. 16 in Chicago.

    Several other major artists will be hitting the road later in 2013. In July, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis announced fall tour dates for the U.S. starting in late October and ending with a three-day stint in their hometown of Seattle (Dec. 10-12). Fellow Seattle-based musicians Pearl Jam also broke news of their 2013 fall dates—the band’s most extensive U.S. tour in over six years.

    Classic rock fans can see the reunited lineup of The Eagles during their History of the Eagles world tour. The trek began earlier this month, but U.S. dates extend through November. In exciting news for alt-rock fans, a reunion is also in order this summer for The Replacements, who will play their first shows in over 20 years as part of the touring Riot Fest lineup in Chicago, Denver, and Toronto.
