Here’s What Metal & Hard Rock Tours Went On Sale (And What Got Cancelled) This Week (May 08th, 2020)


Under normal circumstances, Friday’s aren’t limited to album release dates in the music industry; they’re also 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.

With more artists and festivals electing to vacate 2020 entirely, there’s still a few festival holdouts booked around the fall that are currently hoping for the best. At this point, we’ll just have to wait and see. If this latest week is any indication though, don’t expect to catch any live music in a traditional setting this summer.

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.
