This week, chart topping Swedish singer and songwriter Lykke Li announced that she will be heading out on a new North American tour. Following her European run this summer, the singer will be heading stateside to support her latest effort “I Never Learn.” The singer will start with performances at different music festivals in late June and early July. Then she will be kicking off her official tour following an August 1st performance at Lollapalooza in Chicago. The tour has already been so popular, that the singer has added 13 additional major market shows to the itinerary, keeping the singer on the road through mid-October. Tickets for the tour are on sale now.
However, one of the biggest announcements of the week came from the incomparable Alan Jackson. The country legend revealed earlier this week that he will be heading out on a brand new tour that will take the singer across the United States. The new tour is being deemed the “25th Anniversary Tour” and it will take Jackson around the country. This announcement was made when Jackson was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. According to the singer, this is not a farewell tour, simply a tour that celebrates Jackson’s career so far in the industry.
