17 New Rock + Metal Tours Announced This Past Week

Another week, and we’ve got 17 new rock and metal tours just announced and competing for your concert dollar.

One of the big new tours this week is a co-headliner featuring Ice Nine Kills and In This Moment, with support from Avatar and TX2. We’ve also got a new late summer run from Chevelle with support from Tigercub and Underoath will be hitting the road for dates celebrating the 20th anniversary of They’re Only Chasing Safety.

Alice Cooper just added a bunch of new dates, GWAR has two legs of shows and Hawthorne Heights has a summer packed teaming them with many of the bands they toured with back in their early days.

Plus we’ve got some big festival updates on the horizon, with Eddie Vedder dropping some knowledge about this year’s Ohana Festival.
