Music fans have a variety of choices this week when deciding which artists to catch on the road, whether it’s seeing veteran pioneers in their respective genres, witnessing a reunion, saying farewell to a one-of-a-kind act, or going the more traditional route of hearing new material for the first time. Plus, there is the opportunity to catch a pair of rising rock bands.
Kraftwerk are bringing their renowned 3D tour to North America, while rock legend Alice Cooper is embarking on a brief winter US trek and Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson is taking his spoken word act across the US and Canada. Meanwhile, Pavement and Ned Flanders-themed metal group Okilly Dokilly are moving in opposite directions, with the former band reuniting for an extensive run of worldwide dates and the latter heading out on a farewell tour.
Cat Power and Spiritualized will be debuting new material from their respective upcoming albums Covers and Everything Was Beautiful, with Destroyer resuming their tour in support of 2020’s Have We Met. Finally, Wolfgang Van Halen’s solo band Mammoth WVH is teaming up with fellow rising rock act Dirty Honey for a co-headlining trek across North America. Read more below.
