Bands announce upcoming concert tours
This fall’s concert tour announcements have Seton Hall students excited to see some of their favorite bands hit the road and play at area venues. Whether it’s rock, punk or jam-bands, there are concerts this season for anyone’s taste.
Up-and-coming indie stars Of Monsters and Men, who made a big splash this past summer with their single “Little Talks,” will be touring the east coast most of this fall and will hit New York City’s Terminal 5 on Nov. 20 and 21. If you like a little more energy in your indie flavor then check out The Killers at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden N.J. on Dec. 13 and Madison Square Garden on Dec. 15 touring behind their latest record “Battle Born.”
Junior Michael Negro, who saw Of Monsters and Men play over the summer, said he would consider going to the band’s concert in the city this fall if he has time and it is affordable.
“I’d really like to see them live again,” Negro said. “Especially if they play new songs that will be on their next album.”
Negro also mentioned that he hopes to be able to see The Killers live in December as well.
Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Who, will be stopping at Brooklyn’s brand-new Barclays Center on Nov. 14 which is certain to be a sell-out crowd. Also playing at the Barclays Center on Dec. 21 is jam-band veterans Dave Matthews Band, surely bringing summer vibes to a chilly NYC.
Fresh off this year’s Vans Warped Tour, punk rock favorites New Found Glory look to get loud at Irving Plaza in Manhattan on Dec. 7 and 8. They are making the stop as part of their North American tour in celebration of the 10th anniversary of their breakout album “Sticks and Stones.”
Junior Ruchit Patel said New Found Glory is one of his favorite bands.
“I’m going to try to get tickets to see them play, because I have never been to any of their concerts,” Patel said. “They have very energetic music, so their live performance must be great to watch.”
With all of these bands stopping by the area to perform, this fall is shaping up to be a memorable one for concertgoers. Fans of all types of music will certainly have a chance to see some of the best in the business play.
