One Direction member tours

While we are in the area of pop stars, we can tell you Niall Horan is headed out on tour next year. 

The ex-One Direction member announced The Show Live on Tour 2024, which will take him to several cities in our region including Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati on June 25, Blossom Music Center near Cleveland on June 26, Credit Union 1 Amphitheatre near Chicago on July 9, and Pine Knob Music Center near Detroit on July 10. 

“It’s been far too long and I can’t wait to see your beautiful faces,” Horan said in an Instagram post. “There’s nothing better than watching the crowd sing back to you with all that emotion on their faces and knowing that they’re attaching the song to something meaningful in their own lives. To me, that’s always the greatest thing that can ever come from songwriting.”

Mac Sabbath in Indianapolis

The More Than Meats The Eye tour doesn’t involve any pop superstars.

The tour features headliner Mac Sabbath along with Cybertronic Spree and Playboy Manbaby in what is sure to be a show to remember, stopping at The Vogue in Indianapolis on Oct. 19. 

Mac Sabbath, as you may remember, are the founders of “drive-thru metal,” singing about fast food while dressed as McDonald’s characters. 

Dolenz coming to Angola

The last living member of The Monkees, Micky Dolenz, has rescheduled his performance at Trine University’s T. Furth Center in Angola. 

Originally set for earlier this summer, the show will now be Oct. 27. 

The Monkees, of course, were conceived in 1965 as a fictional band for the sitcom The Monkees. Spurred by the success of the show, The Monkees became a real band and were one of the most successful groups of the 1960s on the strength of hits like “Last Train to Clarksville,” “I’m a Believer,” “A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” and “Daydream Believer.”
