Rocking the Stage in 2017
You here it said almost every year, rock and roll is dead. Whoever said that can’t handle rock concerts anymore, and you should pity them. Rock has never been more alive, it’s just that it comes in so many different forms. It doesn’t just mean rocking out on an electric guitar. Rock music has evolved and joined with so many other genres: goth, electronica, dance, pop. And many more. Those who think rock I dead suffer from a lack of imagination, why not help these people and take them to the best rock tours in your area.
Upcoming Rock Concerts and Tours
Late 2017 has a fantastic mix of comebacks, old legends, anniversary shows, and much more on offer for every fan and rock concert enthusiast. British rockers The Libertines continue to add to their own personal mythology by touring their most recent album, entitled Anthem for Doomed Youth. Pete Docherty and Carl Barat have lost none of the intensity that made their relationship one of the most compelling stories in rock history, even if they are slightly more well behaved these days. Another band that are used to combustible relationships between members is goth rockers Depeche Mode who will probably leave the stage for the final time kicking and screaming.
Just in case your ideal rock tour is based around the anniversary of a seminal indie rock album then New York gloom rockers Interpol have got you covered. 2017 sees the band celebrate the 15th anniversary of their debut album Turn on the Bright Lights, a release that shaped indie music for years to come.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for up to date rock tours from other bands hailing from the Big Apple there is The National and Brand New. Both bands are touring their latest albums in 2017. The National, who’s popularity grows with every album, are set to release their seventh studio album, Sleep Well Beast. Brand New, who have just released their fifth, and likely their last album, Science Fiction, will be bidding fans farewell with a a worldwide tour near the end of the year.
From one band leaving the stage to another returning, dance-rockers LCD Soundsytem are returning with American Dream, their first album in seven years.
Take a look at the rock tours, including The Libertines, Depeche Mode, The National, LCD Soundsystem, Royal Blood, and more, coming to a city near you this year.
