Top 5 Tour Announcements of the Week
We don’t know whether to grind up on each other like pre-teens, or rage out against the current political system. You decide, as you read our picks for the most exciting tour announcements of the week are.
Ja Rule & Ashanti Tour
Teen dreams dream team, Ja Rule and Ashanti, have announced plans to hit the road for late summer. (Perhaps they took some cues from Puffy?) It begins on August 25 in NYC at the Playstation Theater, followed by stops throughout California, before it wraps up on September 10 in New Orleans. Click here for more info.
Tool Fall Tour
Tool continues to torment fans with their lack of new music, and lack of diversity in their tour dates. The elusive band has announced yet another handful of fall shows, most of which will take place in the West. Of the four shows announced, the most exciting is their headlining slot at this year’s VooDoo fest in NoLa, which takes place from October 28-30. Click here for more info.
Prophets of Rage North American Tour
With the current political climate, it makes perfect sense that RaTM incarnate, Prophets of Rage, would form for a tour. Comprised of members of Rage, Cypress Hill and Public Enemy, the band will hit the road for a summer/fall run kicking off on July 19 in Cleveland, OH. Click here for more info.
Angel Olsen ‘My Woman’ Tour
In support of her upcoming album, MY WOMAN, Angel Olsen has announced a lengthy 2016 tour. The folk singer will kick things off on June 6 at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, WI, followed by stops in Canada, Alaska, the East Coast and Europe. Listen to her new single, “Intern,” below.
