February 23, 2016

This generation's answer to the Osmond siblings with a pop-rock influence, R5 are heading out on the road in support of their second studio album Sometime Last Night. Siblings Ross, Riker, Rocky, Rydel and fellow member Ellington Ratliff formed in 2009 out of Littleton, CO however it was only in March 2010 that they released their debut EP Ready Set Rock. In addition, two of the bandmates have appeared on television, with Ross starring in Disney's Austin and Ally, and Riker having a recurrent role on Glee.

Adam Lambert

March 5, 2016

After coming to fame on American Idol's eighth season, Lambert has gone from strength to strength, with his third studio album, last year's The Original High, drawing in influences from the worlds of synthpop and EDM to create a collection of mature and funky pop. The album's lead single 'Ghost Town' drew acclaim for its melding of Lamber's glam rock image and dark house beats by the critics.


April 7, 2016

Lyric soprano, country star, multi-platinum selling artist. Singer-songwriter Jewel first came onto the scene in 1995 with her 15-time platimum album Pieces of You, and has continued to be a mainstay of country and folk music, having released her most recent album Picking Up The Pieces in September. Last fall she embarked on a mini tour to showcase her new album, which is said to resemble her first studio effort, marking a return to her provincial Alaskan roots.

Smashing Pumpkins & Liz Phair

April 10, 2016

Billy Corgan's inimitable Pumpkins head out on another In Plainsong tour, during which they'll be playing cuts from the catalogue in a stripped down acoustic style, infused with some light electronics. As well as original Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlain, this tour also boasts a pretty spectacular support act in Liz Phair.

Father John Misty

April 25-26, 2016

Tall and handsome, with a stage presence that veers between Nick Cave and Johnny Cash, J. Tillman is bringing his latest incarnation, Father John Misty to a town near you this year on the North American leg of his world tour. The one time Fleet Foxes drummer has been steadily releasing solo records since 2004, but it was as Father John that things started to make sense. Conceived after a psychedelic desert experience in the desert deserving of Gram Parsons or one of this Laurel Canyon peers, the sound of Father John Misty is part old school country misery, part retro folk and a whole lot of sardonic wit.
