The Big Rock Summer Tour

Here’s What Metal & Hard Rock Tours Went On Sale (And What Got Cancelled) This Week (March 13th, 2020)


Under normal circumstances, Friday’s don’t just mean album release dates, they’ve also become the general industry standard for public onsale dates for tours. In a bid to keep you up to date amid the never-ending news crush, you can see an assortment of some of the bigger tours and shows that went on sale to the general public this week.

Of course, given the current climate and uncertainty in the touring market, it seems fitting to also include the massive wave of cancellations and postponements that have were announced this week in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic. If an artist you hoped to catch had to postpone or cancel their tour, consider buying some merch or music directly from their official stores in the near future, they could surely use it.

Tickets for the newly announced treks can be found via artist websites and the usual outlets. Should you be unsuccessful that way, you can also try your hand at the secondary market below.

Tours announced for the week ending March 15th, 2020 include:
