The Rock Show: Off the Air

June 17, 2011

Weekly Update 6/12 – 6/18

Filed under: Update — rockshowmusic @ 8:27 pm

Welcome back to The Rock Show, where it’s all about the music!

So the Foo Fighters announced a new run of tour dates, once again snubbing the Philadelphia area.  Interestingly enough, they still haven’t announced a New York City date, either.  I’d assume that means the tour dates will keep coming – I can’t imagine that they’d neglect either of those cities.  The older tour dates had Rise Against as a supporting act, and the new run of dates now have Cage the Elephant as a support.  Interesting choices, and from what I hear both are worth seeing.

Incubus is playing the Susquehanna Bank Center on September 10.  Tickets were on presale over at Livenation today, and go on sale to the general public tomorrow morning at 10am.  The supporting act is Young the Giant, a band I’ve never really heard of.  I got my tickets this morning, so I’m officially going to be there.  Incubus was the first concert I went to, so it’ll be nice to see them again seven years later.

Hayley Williams of Paramore has said recently that they’re beginning to write their next album with a hopeful release early next year.  And in tour news, Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, and Seether are teaming up with Bullet for My Valentine, Escape the Fate, Sevendust, Black Tide, Art of Dying, and Black Cloud Collective for the Uproar Tour.  They’ll be at the Susquehanna Bank Center on August 26.
