Fall concert plans for Bruce Springsteen and Kanye West with Lady GaGa are detailed in the daily tour recap for June 11, as compiled by TicketNews.
More U.S. concerts for Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band go on sale this week as the Boss and his famous crew line up more national dates for their fall itinerary. Concert plans are also in the works for Kanye West and Lady GaGa, who will launch a co-headline concert of sorts later this year. Music fans won’t have to wait as long to see Jamie Foxx in concert; the Academy Award-winning actor and vocalist launches his recently updated summer tour itinerary early next month.
In European concert and touring news, Lauryn Hill has cancelled her plans for a 10-date tour of the continent this summer, which included a headline spot at the Stockholm Jazz Festival on July 15. For Western music stars who do keep their concert schedules for Europe intact, Live Nation has set up the Artist Music Exchange, which offers tickets to concerts in Central Europe at a major discount.
