Each destination will recieve the “No Repeat Weekend” treatment. As the band describes it, this means: “2 Nights. 2 Different Sets. 2 Different Opening Acts. In the Round.”

On their upcoming “M72 World Tour,” Metallica will be supported by bands Pantera, Mammoth WVH, Five Finger Death Punch, and Ice Nine Kills. It’s safe to say: Metallica hasn’t embarked on a tour of this magnitude in decades. We can’t wait to see their concerts erupt in 2023 and 2024.

Blink-182

On Tour: May 4, 2023 – July 16, 2023

When Blink-182 reunited in 2022, we knew they were going to come back in a big way. Now, Travis Barker, Tom DeLonge, and Mark Hoppus are getting ready to release their first new album together in years and the first new Blink-182 album since 2019’s Nine.

The release date and title of the new album have yet to be announced, but the band has already promised a massive world tour in 2023. Blink-182’s world tour kicks off in March and will reach North America in May. We can’t wait to hear the rest of the album to follow their most recent single, “Edging,” and for a whole new era of Blink-182.

The Killers

On Tour: March 16 – 25, 2023

Finally, the time has come for Las Vegas rockers The Killers to get on the road to tour their two albums made in quarantine, Imploding the Mirage and Pressure Machine. The Killers’ latest albums are striking in their differences, Imploding the Mirage being more of the pop, synth-rock realm, while Pressure Machine hails back to their Americana, heartland rock sound.

But The Killers have always been triumphant in their chaos, one that remains melodic, anthemic, inspiring. We can’t wait to be back with Brandon Flowers and co. as one of America’s most wide-ranging rock bands returns to the big stage.
