Early 2007 Tour Blitz

Hey, we just nailed the albums, so let's take a quick look at some off-the-cuff tours that may be swinging by your area in the near (or not so near) future:

Apples in Stereo They should bring Colbert on the road
The Beach Boys, still goin' strong
Blue Man Group (rock tour)
Connor Oberst a.ka. Bright Eyes
Indie up-and-comers - Cold War Kids
Crosby, Stills, Nash (and their different permutations)
The Decemberists
Evanescence, Finger Eleven, and Chevelle (are you kidding me? That's intense)
Gomez (with O.A.R. on select dates and Ben Kweller on select dates)
Heaven and Hell, which sports the likes of Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice.
Rock Gods (or is it just a demon) Incubus
The goth-y yet operatic My Chemical Romance

Then of course you've got your package tours - J├Ągermeister Music Tour (this year featuring Stone Sour, Lacuna Coil, and Shadows Fall). Take Action (with The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Emery, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, et al), Taste of Chaos (with The Used, 30 Seconds to Mars, Senses Fail, et al).

For more concert goodness, peruse Pollstar.com's listings for your favorite artist, venue, or just see who's strolling around town in the next few weeks.

You couldn't forget about this year's Coachella if you for some deranged reason wanted to, but needless to say, without naming the hundred or so bands performing, it's one of the best possible lineups for a musical weekend that anyone could possibly dream of.

For you NYC types (like moi) you can take a shortcut over to Krock2's concert calendar. For all your ticket needs, Live Nation has you covered (although not against TicketBastard fees, why exactly is there a $13 convenience charge ?)

Which bangin' tour are you going too, or what did I miss? Hit it up in the comments!
