While it may be ‘March Madness’ time for college basketball fans, it doesn’t mean that in the world of live entertainment there aren’t other big announcements being released in the month of March. In fact this week one of the hottest rock bands in music today, The National, made a major announcement that has fans of all ages excited about March. The veteran rock group announced that on May 21st they would be releasing their sixth studio album and in order to support that new album they would be heading out on a tour around the country this summer. During this summer time tour, the group will be stopping at some of the biggest venues in the entire country. This includes the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, on June 5th, the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on August 10th and the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado on September 17th. Tickets for these events go on sale this week, so fans of the group will want to act fast if they are looking to see the group take the stage live.
While there is no denying that many rock fans are excited to see The National in their new summer time tour, no tour announcement could top the recent announcement from The Eagles. The iconic rock group, who has been performing since the 1970s, recently announced that they would be getting back together to head out on the road for a tour that promises to be unlike any other. This tour, called the “History Tour” is designed to promote their new “History of the Eagles” documentary which will be premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. The new tour event will take the band to 11 different venues across the country and will feature the group performing some of the biggest hits during their history as a band. Tickets for the event go on sale next week to the public and are expected to sell out fast.
