Queen Bey is ready for a summer of music that has her fans buzzing with excitement. 

The one and only Beyoncé recently announced the Renaissance World Tour that will take her to stadiums across the U.S. and Europe. 

After kicking off the tour in Sweden and hitting other stops on the far side of the Atlantic, she will begin the North American leg in July. She visits Soldier Field in Chicago for two shows, July 22-23, and Ford Field in Detroit on July 26. 

Beyoncé last toured as part of a co-headlining a run in 2018 with her husband, Jay-Z, but this is her first solo headlining tour since 2016’s Formation tour.

She will look to add to her lifetime ticket sales that have already topped the $1 billion mark, making her the highest grossing Black touring artist in history.

Amos sets summer dates

Alt-rock queen Tori Amos has dates lined up in support of her celebrated 2021 album, Ocean to Ocean

Amos announced a U.S. summer tour that features more than two dozen gigs, including stops at Meadow Brook Amphitheatre outside of Detroit on July 9 and Old National Centre in Indianapolis on July 11. 

Amos will be joined on stage with longtime collaborator bassist Jon Evans and renowned U.K. drummer Ash Soan. Special guest support is yet to be announced. 

Ocean to Ocean is Amos’ 16th studio album and is described as her “most personal work in years.” 

Come out for Fall Out Boy

Fall Out Boy have unveiled their summer trek, So Much For (Tour) Dust, supporting their upcoming album, So Much (For) Stardust

Set to kick off on June 21 at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Fall Out Boy will also travel Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati on July 15, Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville on July 16, Blossom Music Center outside Cleveland on July 18, and Pine Knob Music Theatre outside of Detroit on July 29. 

Alkaline Trio will open the show at Wrigley Field, while Bring Me the Horizon opens the other shows. 

The past two summers, Fall Out Boy were on the road with Green Day and Weezer for The Hella Mega Tour, first through North America during the summer of 2021, then through Europe in 2022. 

Cooper, Zombie team up

Rocker Rob Zombie’s Freaks on Parade Tour is returning with Alice Cooper as his opening act. 

The 19-date tour, which also features supporting performances from Ministry and Filter, will stop at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Chicago suburb of Tinley Park, Illinois, on Sept. 1 and Pine Knob Music Theatre outside of Detroit on Sept. 5. 

Zombie’s tour averaged 10,000 people a night last year with opening act Mudvayne

You can get a preview of what the 75-year-old Cooper will bring to the show when he brings his Too Close For Comfort Tour to Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne on May 2.
