Aerosmith will play two shows in Hawaii next month as The Cranberries cement their reunion with the dates for their 2009 trek of North America. Those stories and more are in the mix for the daily tour recap on September 23, as compiled by TicketNews.
Despite being plagued by health concerns and accidents this touring season, Aerosmith is back in the saddle and has named the dates for its court mandated make-up concerts in Hawaii. The bad boys of Boston have penned in performances on October 18 and 20 for Oahu and Maui, respectively. As a result of a class action suit filed against the band in 2007, more than 3,000 fans will see one of the shows for free.
That’s the main update from the road for this Wednesday, but many other artists have unveiled more details for their own tour plans this fall. Highlights of the day’s announcements are outlined in brief below:
The Cranberries have unveiled the first leg of dates for their 2009 reunion tour of North America. The 19-date venture kicks off November 12 at Rams Head Live! in Baltimore, MD, and concludes December 7 at Moore Theatre in Seattle, WA. The newly reformed Irish alt-rockers will also stop along the way for events on November 13 at Orpheum Theatre in Boston, MA; November 20-21 at Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto, ON; November 25 at Riviera Theatre in Chicago, IL; and December 4 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, CA.
Bob Dylan and His Band have added a not-so-top-secret performance to the start of their West Coast tour of the U.S. this fall. The “secret show” is set for October 4 at The Moore in Seattle, WA, where the veteran singer-songwriter is also booked for his previously announced tour-opening show on October 5 at the city’s WaMu Theatre. Tickets for the gig at The Moore went on sale today, September 23, to Dylan’s online community via a pre-sale password that is available on his official Web site.
Jessie James will be on the road with pop band Push Play this fall for more than 15 concerts in the United States. The nation trek launches October 8 at Station 4 in St. Paul, MN, and concludes November 5 at the House of Blues at New Orleans, LA, though James has solo performances lined up before and after her stint with Push Play. The two-act bill will also make stops on October 13 at Subterranean in Chicago, IL; October 21 at Toad’s Place in New Haven, CT; October 26 at Headliners Music Hall in Louisville, KY; and November 1 at Cambridge Room in Dallas, TX, among other planned performances.
Metric is about two weeks away from starting a recently expanded tour of Canada, which will stretch from October through early November. The trek launches with a concert on October 15 at Centre in the Square in Kitchener, ON, and concludes November 3 at the Orpheum in Vancouver, BC. With the recent confirmation of new show dates, the band is now set for a couple two-night stands on October 16-17 at Metropolis in Montreal, QC, and October 20-21 at Massey Hall in Toronto, ON. Some other updates to the calendar include sets on October 29 at The Odeon in Saskatoon, SK, and October 31 at Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton, AB, among others.
Kate Voegele has added a leg of late season concerts to her impending fall tour of the nation. The singer-songwriter takes the stage next on September 26 at Blue Martini in West Palm Beach, FL, and will continue across the country through a November 15 show at Park West in Chicago, IL. Her calendar was originally inked only through late October, but now her new schedule features concerts including October 23 at White Rabbit in San Antonio, TX; October 29 at Launchpad in Albuquerque, NM; November 6 at Grand Sierra Resort & Casino in Reno, NV; and November 12 at Fubar in St. Louis, MO.
Pete Yorn, singer-songwriter extraordinaire, has booked a fresh fall tour of the East Coast. The U.S. trek begins October 19 at Granada Theatre in Lawrence, KS, and continues through November 8 at Amos’ SouthEnd in Charlotte, NC. After a brief lull in his schedule, Yorn will return for at least one more show further west on December 5 at Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO, possibly an indicator of additional tour legs yet to come. Of the 14 shows currently announced, highlights include sessions on October 25 at Newport Music Hall in Columbus, OH; October 27 at Majestic Theatre in Madison, WI; November 1 at Ridgefield Playhouse in Ridgefield, CT; and November 5 at Electric Factory in Philadelphia, PA.
