Dates: March 31 to May 23 • Buy Tickets
Chris Brown is bringing along some party people for his upcoming Party Tour, and 50 Cent is one of them. The dynamic duo are no strangers to collaborating (see 50’s “No Romeo No Juliet” or “I’m The Man”) so it makes sense that they’ll be seeing each other again on tour. The fun starts on March 31, so make sure you get tickets before the party ends in Las Angeles on May 23. Fabolous, O.T. Genasis, and Kap G are also coming along for the ride.

Blondie and Garbage

If you can handle large amounts of badassery, then the Blondie and Garbage tour is for you. Blondie is set to release their Pollinator album on May 5, and playing these 20 dates will surely get the new tunes out there. John Doe & Exene Cervenka and Deap Vally will open for the veteran rockers.

Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey

Dates: July 21 to Sept 5 • Buy Tickets
Now that Lionel Richie is mended from the procedure on his knee, he's ready to dance out onto the road with none other than Mariah Carey as his special guest this summer. The tour is called All The Hits, so we're sure that both Richie and Carey will bring their decades of favorites to the stage across North America.

Dropkick Murphys and Rancid

Dates: July 27 to Aug. 2Buy Tickets
Just when you thought you couldn’t get more punk, Dropkick Murphys and Rancid announced a joint tour that will make your hard-rock heart sing—or at least mosh—with joy. The two bands have named their trek the From Boston to Berkeley Tour, after their hometowns, where they’ll stop during the summer tour.

Queen and Adam Lambert

Dates: June 23 to Aug. 5 Buy Tickets
Queen and Adam Lambert have been playing together since 2012, so don't stop them now, ‘cause they’re having a good time. Lambert's soaring voice mixes perfectly into the Queen hits you know and love. So if you haven’t seen the power act together, now’s your chance. The joint tour begins in June, and will hit stages throughout the summer.

There's no doubt that the joint tour of Daryl Hall & John Oates and Tears for Fears will serve as your personal time machine. It will be '80s City when they bring out the hits, but Tears for Fears are also planning to release their first new album in 13 years soon, so you'll never know what to expect.  And you know Hall & Oates live: they're always making your dreams come true.

Steve Martin and Martin Short

Dates: March 18 to Oct. 7 Buy Tickets
The two comedian pals have been touring like madmen, but they aren't stopping yet. With their quirky act that includes Steve Martin's banjo skills and Martin Short's excellent characters, you won't go un-entertained. Their An Evening You Will Forget trek continues throughout the summer and into the fall.
