ZZ Top’s new headline tour plans and an update from Lollapalooza 2010 are in the mix for the daily tour recap on August 17, as compiled by TicketNews.
Blues rock trio ZZ Top is making the best of Aerosmith’s unexpected tour cancellations. The veteran musicians have announced that they’ll stay on the road with their own headline tour of the U.S., beginning immediately. More than a dozen dates are lined up for the run, which continues through September.
This year’s festival may have just ended but tickets for Lollapalooza 2010 are already selling quickly. With major promotional discounts on three-day ducats, the Chicago-based destination festival is announcing ticket sell-outs already for the August 2010 season. Christian pop-punk group Relient K has a new headline tour planned for the future, albeit not as far in advance as 2010. Acclaimed folk rock band Blitzen Trapper is also set to hit the U.S. tour trail for late September and October. Finally, fans of Depeche Mode hopefully won’t have to worry about any more postponements or cancellations for a while; the group is back on the road after axing two dates in California.
