Tonight marks the start of the tour of concerts and festivals that I have planned for this year. I think there is a pretty good line-up already.
Tonight, at Nutty’s North in Sioux Falls, Saving Abel is playing. Opening for them tonight is Pop Evil, Monty Are 1, and Taddy Porter. This should be a pretty good concert. If anyone wants to go, the tickets are very reasonably priced too.
Also, at the end of July, Dave Matthews Band is headlining The 10K Lakes Festival. They play on Saturday night along with the hundreds of other bands playing that couple of days. Now, I am not sure if this is going to work or not, but I’m hoping it will. DMB is playing on Saturday night and there is a concert in Brookings on Sunday night. Staind, Shinedown, Halestorm, and Chevelle. I would like to go to this one too, but that may be a lot for one weekend, we’ll see.
Other Concerts that are on the radar but not confirmed yet would include Journey in Sioux Falls on July 19th, and you can’t forget about Alice Cooper and Big and Rich at the Sioux Empire Fair. Then you can’t forget Aerosmith, Saving Abel, Hinder, The Guess Who, Buckcherry, Tesla and a few other good ones out at Sturgis this year.
All-in-all, that looks like a good summer to me. Let’s see how many I actually get to.
