Slightly Stoopid: Schools Out For Summer 2018 Tour (June 16)

Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters (June 23)
More than 40 years into his illustrious career, rock legend and former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant is still blowing minds with his band the Sensational Spaceshifters. The group’s experimental live shows focus on the best elements of Plant’s career, incorporating interstellar electronics and rootsy acoustics to craft otherworldly originals as well as unique reinventions of Led Zeppelin classics like “No Quarter” and “Black Dog”.
Kenny Chesney: Trip Around the Sun Tour (July 3)
There’s a reason Kenny Chesney is the only country act in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years – in spite of the fact he’s only been a headliner for a dozen years: the singer/songwriter from Luttrell, Tennessee has an insatiable need to take the stage, make sure his fans have the night of their summer — and he does it with songs that are mirrors to their lives.
Pitbull (July 13)
The Miami-based Cuban-American rapper Pitbull, born Armando Perez, who raps in both English and Spanish, has gained a reputation as a crowd-pleasing, suave performer, essentially serving as a great host who delivers the music his fans want to hear in concert.
Phish (July 17 & 18)
Phish is an American rock band, known for musical improvisation, extended jams, blending of genres, and a dedicated fan base. Phish’s music blends elements of a wide variety of genres, including funk, progressive rock, psychedelic rock, folk, country, jazz, blues, bluegrass, and pop. Although the band has received little radio play or mainstream exposure, Phish has developed a large and dedicated following by word of mouth, the exchange of live recordings, and selling over 8 million albums and DVDs in the United States.
Keith Urban: Graffiti U World Tour (July 21 & 22)
The release of Urban’s album RIPCORD in 2016 marked the second time that one of his albums debuted simultaneously atop the all-genre charts in the U.S., Canada and Australia — the only male Country artist to achieve this mark. The album produced five #1 songs, which moved Urban to #8 on Billboard’s All-time Country Airplay Chart and it leaves Urban’s streak as the artist with the most consecutive top 10 songs on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart (38) well intact – a streak that started in August of 2000.
Luke Bryan What Makes You Country Tour 2018 (July 25)
An American country music vocalist and singer-songwriter, Bryan began his music career during the middle of the first decade of the 21st century, writing songs for his longtime friends from high school, performers Travis Tritt and Billy Currington; and releasing his first Spring Break album.

Charlie Puth The Voicenotes Tour (August 18)
Pop wunderkind Charlie Puth hit the bigtime in 2015 with “See You Again”, the record-breaking No. 1 smash from the Furious 7 soundtrack written in commemoration of actor Paul Walker. Since then Puth has been on fire, burning up the charts with singles like “One Call Away” and his Top 10 debut album Nine Track Mind. At his live shows he performs with an ease and confidence that belies his youth, delivering his uplifting vocals with pitch-perfect precision while showing off his classical training on the grand piano. With his crystal-clear voice and knack for wringing every last drop of emotion out of his passionate ballads, Puth is a must-see for fans of brilliantly crafted pop music.
