After hosting some of the summer’s hottest shows, the month of August is the cherry on top to a delicious lineup! John Mayer is kicking things off on August 6th with his promotional tour. His two singles off of Battles Studies, “Who Says” and “Heartbreak Warfare” reflect on Mayer’s preference for a low-key life, confirming the heart throb’s romanticism and reserve. Earlier this year Mayer also performed at a CMT Crossroads concert with Keith Urban, performing a medley of their own songs, which led to their teaming up again for the 2010 CMT Awards in June. Following the release of Battle Studies (2009), John Mayer, one of Twitter’s most followed celebs, has been on tour since May where he kicked off the tour with two performances in London. Kiss and Rihanna with guest performer Kesha will be following up John Mayer at the Comcast Center on the 7th and 8th.
Maroon 5 is kicking off their tour tomorrow, previewing their upcoming album, Hands All Over. After escaping to Lake Geneva in Switzerland to record last year, front man Adam Levine told Nylon Magazine the result includes a duet with Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum called “Out of Goodbyes”. Lavine has also been hinting for quite some time that there’s a good chance the next album could be the band’s last. The Maroon 5 2010 summer tour features artists Guster, Owl City and Ry Cuming along the way and hits the Comcast Center in Mansfield on Tuesday, August 10th midway through their tour and a month before the expected release date of Hands All Over in September.
Rescheduled from June 26th, Brooks & Dunn’s “The Last Rodeo” tour is not only the final tour, but the Comcast Center is the final venue of the expansive tour- so it’s bound to be an emotional night for the band and fans alike. Brian O’Connell, president of LiveNation, said, “They will leave everything they have on the stage one final time in each city… a celebration of their career by two of the greatest Artists that Country Music has ever known.” The tour follows the recent release of Brooks & Dunn’s career-spanning double-disc collection, #1s … and Then Some, which features 30 favorites in all, with an amazing 23 #1 hit singles including “Cowgirls Don’t Cry,” which earned the duo their 15th career Grammy Award nomination. The concert is a must-see for all country-music crazed New Englanders. Following Brooks & Dunn, fellow country stars Zac Brown Band will be playing the Comcast Center August 14th and Green Day will play with AFI on August 16th. (more)

Dave Matthews Band will arrive in Mansfield for two shows on June 7th and 8th as part of their 2010 North American tour. They are currently on the road to further promote their latest studio album Big whiskey and the GrooGrux King. Featuring singles “Funny The Way It Is”, “Why I Am,” and “You and Me,” the album reached platinum status and attained the top spot on the Billboard 200 charts after it’s release in June of 2009.
Jimmy Buffet’s Under the Big Top tour will light up the Comcast Center for a pair of concerts as well on June 17th and 19th. Parrotheads should expect to hear their beloved “Big 8″ classics and also some new material from his new studio project Buffet Hotel.
The venue will then welcome Brooks & Dunn the following week during their final string of shows. In 2009 the duo had announced to end their run with the release of #1′s And Then Some. Other country acts to perform at the Comcast include Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts and Toby Keith.
Country music Duo Brooks & Dunn have just announced that they will be parting ways after one final tour in 2010. A message from the group on their website states: “After 20 years of making music and riding this trail together, we have agreed as a duo that it’s time call it a day. This ride has been everything and more than we could ever have dreamed …. We owe it all to you, the fans. If you hear rumors, don’t believe them, it’s just time. We will release our #1′s and then some” on September 8th and come see you all one more time in 2010, with The Last Rodeo Tour (dates to be announced).” The group is currently touring at different state fairs while in the process of scheduling next year’s tour. They also have a few dates booked for early December at the Hilton Theatre in Las Vegas, NV.
Brooks & Dunn have won two Grammy Awards and three American Music Awards since their debut album “Brand New Man” was released. They had more than forty singles on the country music charts and twenty #1 hits. Brooks & Dunn will certainly be missed after almost twenty years in the country music scene.
Tickets for Brooks & Dunn are now available!
