For those of you, like myself, who enjoy attending concerts, the first half of 2017 is set to be an amazing few months of live music. These acts are absolutely fantastic, so if you manage to get tickets for a few of these tours your bank balance could end up being in serious trouble. Today I decided to round up some of the best tours coming up next year.
January 2017 – Avenged Sevenfold, dates here
This tour is the only tour on my list which I already have tickets for, and I am extremely excited to be able to see Avenged Sevenfold for the second time. I’ll be attending the Nottingham date, and although I was already looking forward to the date, my excitement pretty much quadrupled after reviewing the band’s latest album, The Stage.
January 2017 – The Pretty Reckless, dates here
After reviewing the band’s latest record Who You Selling For, my love for The Pretty Reckless has seriously increased. I’m hoping to be able to attend their Nottingham date on January 19th, because it promises to be a fantastic night.
February 2017 – Deaf Havana, dates here
I’ve seen these guys perform twice and I thoroughly enjoyed myself both times, so I’d love to make it a hat trick. Again, I’d probably have to make the journey to London to catch these guys live, but it would be worth it!
February 2017 – Kings Of Leon, dates here
I’m really excited at the prospect of seeing Kings Of Leon live, considering how long I’ve been a fan of theirs. Even if you weren’t a massive fan of their last two albums, their great live performances would make attending one of their shows worth it.
March 2017 – Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, dates here
Not wanting to rest on their laurels for too long, even though The Rattlesnakes have only just finished up a string of UK tour dates, the band announced this week that they’ll be touring yet again next March. I’m gutted that they haven’t announced a Nottingham date, but I’m willing to make the trek to London to see these guys perform live.
March/April 2017 – Mallory Knox, dates here
I’ve been a big fan of Mallory Knox since their first mainstream success, and I really enjoyed seeing them perform live at Leeds Festival in 2014. Unfortunately I haven’t had the opportunity to see them live again since, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to attend either the Cambridge, or one of the London dates. Plus, Lonely The Brave is one of their support acts, and I’d love to see them perform live again too.
March/April 2017 – Pulled Apart By Horses, dates here
Even though I’m a fan of this band, I have yet to see Pulled Apart By Horses live, so it would be great to see them next year.
April 2017 – You Me At Six, dates here
I really enjoyed You Me At Six’s latest single, Night People, so I’d really like to see them perform it live next year. Plus, I’ve been a fan of the band for a long time, so it would be great to hear them perform some older songs alongside the new on tour.
Are you attending any of these tours? Are there any other awesome tours planned for 2017 that I missed off this list? Let me know your thoughts on my Facebook or Twitter page, or in the comment section below this post.
