Fall touring plans from Social Distortion and Guster are in the headlines for the daily tour recap on July 23, as compiled by TicketNews.
Punk rock veterans Social Distortion have lined up the next wave of concert dates for this fall. Nineteen shows have been confirmed so far, with dates ranging from September 18 through October 18, and support will be provided by TAT and Social D’s current touring partners, The Strangers.
Alternative rock band Guster also has concert plans lined up for the fall as the band plans to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its 1999 release “Lost and Gone Forever” with ten cover-to-cover album performances. Celebrations are also in order for the Vans Warped Tour, which will celebrate its 15 years in existence with a one-night theatrical event in more than 460 movie theaters.
R&B vocalist Beyoncé has made some changes to her Australian tour schedule, pushing back the opening date and cancelling two shows outright. While that may cause some ticketing woes for some fans, it’s nowhere near the headaches experienced by fans who unknowingly bought stolen tickets to see Elton John and Billy Joel.
Those are the complete concert and tour reports for this Thursday, but more artist itineraries have been updated throughout the day. Check out the highlights, which are outlined below in brief:
