Zach Bryan just released his eponymous fourth album and announced he will embark on The Quittin’ Time Tour, featuring a run of stadiums in 2024. 

At just 27 years old, the Navy veteran has risen to super-stardom based on the strength of his newest album that includes the track “I Remember Everything” featuring Kacey Musgraves.

The new album contains 16 tracks that explores the Grammy-nominated singer’s Southern roots that combine a litany of varied musical and literary influences. 

Along with Musgraves, the album written and produced entirely by Bryan, boasts collaborations The Lumineers, Sierra Ferrell, and The War and Treaty.

The Quittin’ Time Tour will put Bryan in 38 cities for 54 shows including two nights at Chicago’s United Center, March 6-7, and a stop at the Buckeye Super Country Fest in Columbus, Ohio, on June 22. 

The Middle East and Levi Turner will open the Chicago shows.

Lot of shots to see Pop Evil

Rock radio favorites Pop Evil have announced a headlining tour supporting their newest album Skeletons

Though they won’t be heading to Fort Wayne on this trek, they will be playing a few shows within reasonable driving distance beginning with The Eclectic Room in Angola on Nov. 1, TempleLive! in Cleveland on Nov. 18, Bogart’s in Cincinnati on Nov. 19, The Bluestone in Columbus, Ohio, on Nov. 21, and the tour wrap-up show in their hometown of Grand Rapids at The Intersection on Nov. 22. 

I’d look for the Angola show to sell out quite quickly, so get your ticket early if you are interested. 

Fame on Fire and Lylvc will open the shows.

Aqua celebrates ‘Barbie Girl’

On the heels of the success of Barbie, one-hit wonder Aqua have decided to hit the road to bring their 1997 hit “Barbie Girl” to the masses. 

Aptly titled the Barbie World Tour, the trek includes a stop at The Fillmore in Detroit on Dec. 10 and Chicago’s House of Blues on Dec. 12. 

Last year, Aqua released a 25th anniversary reissue of their debut album, Aquarium, which contained the “Barbie Girl” song and, I’m sure, some other songs.

Rodrigo hits road in 2024

Olivia Rodrigo’s new album Guts dropped this month, but the pop star will wait until 2024 to go on the road to support it.

In what is sure to be one of the biggest tours of the early part of the year, Rodrigo will make a stop at Chicago’s United Center on March 19, Nationwide Arena in Columbus on March 22, and Little Caesars Arena in Detroit on March 23.

Chappell Roan will open the shows and a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to Rodrigo’s new nonprofit, Fund 4 Good, which supports women’s education and reproductive rights and prevents gender-based violence.
