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)
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have caused quite a commotion with his latest album Mojo. Breaking the silence, Mojo is the first Petty album in eight years. One of America’s greatest live bands since their first club tours and opening-act jobs in 1976 and ’77, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ made what Rolling Stone calls a “matured return to the elementary fury of their first golden-twang era, capped by 1981′s Hard Promises [with] cocksure grooves, pithy knife-play guitars and little overdub fuss – worked up, then nailed.” The album also received comparisons to the Rolling Stones reissued Exile on Main Street, a record that’s been dubbed the 7th greatest album of all time.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers released their debut self-titled album in 1976, a rock and roll revival amidst an era of punk and new wave. The record was equal parts garage rock, British Invasion, with Bob Dylan-inspired, storytelling lyrics. Their second album You’re Gonna Get It! spawned the singles “Listen to her Heart” and “I Need to Know.” It wasn’t until 1979’s Damn the Torpedoes came out that the hit single “Refugee” finally catapulted Petty to stardom in the US. Throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s, Petty and the Heartbreakers continued to crank out hits like “Don’t Come Around Here No More,” “Runnin Down a Dream,” “Free Fallin,” “Learning to Fly,” and “You Don’t Know How It Feels”. A workhorse touring schedule and legendary live sets cemented their dedicated fanbase.
The group has hit the road again in light of their 2010 studio album, having already played eleven venues in the past month and looking to play about thirty more through early October with the accompaniment of artists such as My Morning Jacket, Joe Cocker, Crosby, Stills and Nash and ZZ Top. The Mojo tour is bound to make a promising live show as the album was produced with a great live adaptation in mind- specifically one to compete with his ‘80’s career. The result is proof that Petty and the Heartbreakers have regained their past mojo on the new album, and in doing so they’ve outdone themselves. The band will be coming to Mansfield’s Comcast Center for August 19th and 21st to put the new album to the test.
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers have just announced that they will delay the start of the 2010 tour due to the late release of their forthcoming album “Mojo”. The first 10 dates of the tour will now take place on the back end of their tour. Nine of these shows have been re-scheduled so far. Tickets for the original dates will be honored at the new dates. Petty has hinted that the shows will feature many songs from the new album so its no wonder that the album’s delayed release has changed their tour plans. “Mojo” is expected to be a heavier sound for the Heartbreakers who have played more on the mellow side of rock in recent years.
