An attendance report from Bonnaroo and finalized concert plans from Creed are just a couple stories from the daily tour recap for June 16, as compiled by TicketNews.
A couple days after the crowds cleared the 700 acre farm in Manchester, TN, initial attendance reports are surfacing from this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. Despite the economic condition and falling short of a sell-out, the promoter’s estimates show that the June 11-14 event still had a better turnout than last year.
Reunited rock band Creed has finalized its 2009 tour itinerary with a few final venues and upcoming onsales. The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus has also announced plans for its 34-city summer tour, featuring a split supporting bill of Hollywood Undead and Monty Are I. The inaugural Dubfest in Hollywood, FL, has announced its reggae-ska lineup, which will include a headline appearance by the iconic Bunny Wailer, as well as sets from Reel Big Fish and Badfish, among others.
Those are the complete reports for this Tuesday, but there are more concert and tour updates to be had. Read on for some of the day’s other highlights:
