Having trouble researching upcoming concerts in 2011? Are upset that you can’t find affordable tickets for your favorite artists’ tours? If you answered yes to any of the previous two questions, you’ve come to the right place. Many artists, across genres, are gearing up for large international tours, and SeatGeek is committed to helping you attend. Some notable upcoming acts include Rush, NKOTB with Backstreet Boys, Lil Wayne with Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross & Travis Barker, Taylor Swift, Usher with Akon, and Owl City. We’ve hand picked a number of the hottest upcoming concerts and provided links to the tours below.

One band that will be sure to deliver a killer performance is Dispatch.  The last time Dispatch went on tour was in 2007, when they played 3 shows at Madison Square Garden in an effort to raise money for Zimbabwe.  They sold out all 3 shows, and put on a performance that many would never forget.  Fortunately, Dispatch is back, and will be performing at a number of venues across the United States including Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO; Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ; Terminal 5 in New York, NY; Greek Theatre – Los Angeles in Los Angeles, NY.  While many of the tickets in the primary market are already sold out, there are numerous opportunities to buy in the secondary market to which we can link you.  Good luck!
