Top 5 Tour Announcements of the Week
A bunch of punks, a blonde, and the inventor of the leather track-suit walk into a bar… Here’s who we’re most excited to see announce tours this week.
Kanye West “Saint Pablo” Tour
Kanye West has announced the long-awaited tour behind his current album, The Life of Pablo. The Saint Pablo Tour will kick off on August 25 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN, followed by stops throughout the Eastern Seaboard, West Coast and Canada.

Kesha Summer Tour

Diarrhea Planet North American Tour

Black Sabbath Final Tour Dates
Black Sabbath has been traveling around on “The End” tour for quite some time, with several expansions to the itinerary already under the band’s belt. Now they’ve updated their schedule yet again, tacking on three new U.S. shows for November. Fans living in Tulsa, Houston and San Antonio will now have a chance to see the rockers perform in North America for the last time ever–unless they expand their tour again, of course.

Descendents Fall Tour
Before there was Blink 182 and Green Day, there was the Descendents. The seminal pop-punk band is back with a new album, their first since 2004, and they’ve announced a supporting tour. It kicks off on September 2 at Riot Fest, and wraps up on November 12 in Portland, OR, at Roseland Theater. Click here for more tickets.
