Måneskin announce RUSH! World Tour

Italian rock band Måneskin have announced their biggest live run to date, the 2023 RUSH! World Tour.

The mammoth trek will see the group headline arenas in North America, South America, Japan and Europe, in addition to their first ever shows in Australia.

Måneskin embarked on their first headline tour of North America last year, selling 100,00 tickets across 25 shows, and will return to headline arenas across the US and Canada, including a landmark show at New York’s Madison Square Garden on 21 September.

The Rome quartet are also heading back to South America, where they will debut in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Colombia, and will also headline arenas in Japan for the first time.

Måneskin will see play to more than 500,000 fans on their ongoing LOUD KIDS World Tour 

The RUSH! World Tour will follow on from Måneskin’s ongoing LOUD KIDS World Tour, which will see them play to more than 500,000 fans. The run has over 20 sold-out European shows still to come, plus festival slots at Glastonbury and Primavera Sound.

The band, who performed to 70,000 fans at Rome’s Circus Maximus in 2022, have already sold more than 220,000 tickets for five special stadium shows in their native Italy in July. Their full list of 2023 tour dates is below.

Springsteen adds further North American tour dates

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band have confirmed additional North American arena and stadium dates for their blockbuster 2023 world tour.

The tour, which began in Tampa, Florida on 1 February, has attracted rave reviews, despite band members Steven Van Zandt, Soozie Tyrell and Nils Lofgren each missing certain shows due to Covid-19.

The newly added 22 concerts, which will take in 18 cities, run from 9 August at Chicago’s Wrigley Field to 8 December at San Francisco’s Chase Center.

Multiple nights have also been scheduled for Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park (16 & 18 August), New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium (30 August & 1 September), Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena (14 & 16 November) and Los Angeles’ Kia Forum (4 & 6 December). Tickets will go on sale over the course of the next two weeks.

The tour will be using Verified Fan via Ticketmaster for many shows, with tickets for Wrigley Field and Citizens Bank Park to be sold directly by the stadiums.

The concerts mark the band’s first run since 2016/17’s The River Tour, which was the highest grossing worldwide tour of 2016, earning $268.3m over 76 shows.

More than 1.5 million tickets have already been sold for the European leg alone, which commences at the 60,000-cap Estadi Olímpic in Barcelona on 28 April and winds up on 25 July in Italy at Prato della Gerascia, Autodromo di Monza. Many cities have added second or third stadium shows due to demand.

“No other act in the history of Spanish concerts has sold so many tickets that fast”

Spanish promoter Neo Sala at Doctor Music told IQ last year that demand for the shows helped set a new sales record in the country.

“We went on sale on [8 June] with one Estadi Olímpic, but it sold so fast that in less than an hour we had to add a second show which continued selling equally well,” he said. “By noon… we had sold more than 100,000 tickets which is an absolute record in Spain. No other act in the history of Spanish concerts has sold so many tickets that fast.”

Springsteen spoke out last November about the dynamic ticketing controversy for the tour. Individual tickets reached more than $5,000 via Ticketmaster’s market-based platinum pricing model when the first wave of The E Street Band’s US tour dates went on sale in the summer.

The backlash prompted the 73-year-old’s manager Jon Landau to defend the pricing, insisting it was in line with shows for acts of a similar stature, while the average ticket price is around $250.

“Ticket buying has gotten very confusing, not just for the fans, but for the artists also,” Springsteen told Rolling Stone. “And the bottom line is that most of our tickets are totally affordable. We have those tickets that are going to go for that [higher] price somewhere anyway. The ticket broker or someone is going to be taking that money. I’m going, ‘Hey, why shouldn’t that money go to the guys that are going to be up there sweating three hours a night for it?’

“It created an opportunity for that to occur. And so at that point, we went for it. I know it was unpopular with some fans. But if there’s any complaints on the way out, you can have your money back.”

The Chicks announce 2023 world arena tour

The Chicks have announced a 37-date world tour, with dates in the UK, Europe and North America.

The Chicks released their fifth studio album ‘Gaslighter’ in 2020. The trio’s comeback album was co-produced by Jack Antonoff and was their first since 2006’s ‘Taking The Long Way’ – the group’s last album released under the Dixie Chicks name.

Metallica unveil ‘No Repeat Weekend’ world tour

Metallica has announced a 46-date world tour, which will see them play two dates in every city they visit but with a new setlist and different support acts on each of the nights.

The M27 outing comprises 23 ‘No Repeat Weekends’ in Europe, North America and South America between April 2023 and September 2024. Venues on the tour are yet to be announced.

The tour, produced by Live Nation and presented by Liquid Death and Blackened American Whiskey, will premiere a new in-the-round stage design that relocates the famed Metallica Snake Pit to centre stage.

Support acts joining the jaunt include Architects, Mammoth WVH, Five Finger Death Punch, Ice Nine Kills, Pantera, Volbeat and Greta Van Fleet.

Fans will have the option of purchasing a single-day ticket, a two-day ticket or an ‘I Disappear’ full-tour pass. For the first time, discounted tickets will be available for fans under 16 years of age.

A portion of proceeds from every ticket sold will go to the band’s All Within My Hands foundation, which is dedicated to “creating sustainable communities by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger, and other critical local services”.

News of the tour comes shortly after Metallica announced they would play two unique sets on the Thursday and Saturday nights of the UK’s Download festival.

The American rock band, which is represented by K2 Agency founder John Jackson, says they haven’t played the same set twice in almost 20 years.

Shawn Mendes cancels remainder of Wonder world tour

Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes has cancelled the remaining dates on Wonder: The World Tour to focus on his wellbeing.

The tour was slated to visit a total 77 arenas, with Dermont Kennedy and Tate McRae supporting the North American dates and King Princess joining Mendes in Europe.

The Canadian pop star had so far played seven of the 87 shows he had scheduled across the US and Europe.

In a statement posted on his social media channels, 23-year-old Mendes said: “I started this tour excited to finally get back to playing live after a long break due to the pandemic, but the reality is I was not at all ready for how difficult touring would be after this time away.

“After speaking with my team and working with an incredible group of health professionals, it has become more clear that I need to take the time I’ve never taken personally, to ground myself and come back stronger.

“I need to take the time I’ve never taken personally, to ground myself and come back stronger”

“It breaks my heart to tell you this but I promise I will be back as soon as I’ve taken the right time to heal.”

He added that he hoped to reschedule the shows in the future and thanked fans for their support, telling them that cancelling the shows did not mean he would stop making music.

The announcement comes after the singer announced earlier this month he was cancelling some dates of the tour in order to “heal and take care of myself and my mental health”.

Mendes explained at the time that after “a few years off the road” due to the Covid pandemic, he felt “ready to dive back in”, but said his decision had ultimately proved to be “premature”.

The Canadian pop star is represented by Nick Matthews at Paradigm in Europe and Matt Galle at CAA for the rest of the world.
