Brad Whitford says Aerosmith tour will happen

Good news to all the Aerosmith fans out there as band member Brad Whitford said that the group has plans to hit the road in March of 2009. As of right now, the band would not be performing any new music even though they have part of a album done. Whitford mentioned that he would love to finish the album and be able to play it during the upcoming tour but he just doesn’t see that happening.

Don’t worry however as the band has plenty of hits to play as they have rocked fans for decades. Who knows if this is the last planned tour as the guys are all getting up there in age and doing their own things. You should do your best and try to get tickets once they go on sale either way as they will be putting on a great show!

As of right now no tour stops have been released but we will have that news once the press release is released. Keep checking back at VIP Tickets for more Aerosmith concert news!

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has racked up six Grammy statues, including the Grammy Legend Award, and has sold more than 100 million records during a career that spans four decades, according to his bio. His “Greatest Hits Volume I and II” has moved more than 20 million copies alone, making it the best-selling hits album by a male artist.

John Legend expands his tour with second leg

John Legend has added a second leg to his “Evolver” tour his press release is stating. The Grammy winner recently announced the first leg, which kicks off Nov. 19 in Minneapolis and sticks close to the eastern US through mid-December. That run, featuring special guest Raphael Saadiq, includes two-night stands in Chicago and Montclair, NJ, and a stop in Toronto. The tour’s second leg is set to launch Jan. 12 in Oakland, CA, with London-based singer/rapper Estelle in the opening slot. Legend will make his way across the US through Feb. 7, and then jump into a two-week European jaunt.

John Legend concerts are great for couples to go to as girls and guys both enjoy his type of music. It isn’t like a rock or pop show, it just nice music that relates to everybody. I’d do my best to get some tickets close to the stage if possible and have a special moment with your special somebody. You can browse for tickets by clicking here.

Rapper Lil Wayne will be hitting the tour bus through the month of December and parts of January as he promotes his latest album called “Tha Carter III.” Several of the tour stops on the itinerary also feature Keyshia Cole, T-Pain, Gym Class Heroes and Keri Hilson.

Nickelback to tour with Seether and Saving Abel

Nickelback who is fresh off releasing a top 5 album has announced plans for a spring tour that has Seether and Saving Abel opening up for the show. As of right now, the tour is planned to make stops in over 30 cities. There are some shows in the eastern area of the USA and up into Canada but it appears that most of the shows are in the Mid-West.

Tickets for this tour are going to go fast in my opinon. You can still sign up to the Nickelback fan club to get presale opportunities and I recommend you do that if you want tickets close to the stage. I know I’m personally going to pay the $25 for the fan club membership just so I can secure good seats. Tickets will start to go on sale Nov 28th via the fan club.
