Superior Summer Shows


Elizabeth Clark

With June on the horizon and warm weather upon us, students are starting to think about their summer vacation and making memories with their friends. For most teens, among these memories is straining our voices at amazing summer concerts with our closest friends.

If you’re a Country fan….

Saturday May 26, Xfinity Center:Jason Aldean’s High Noon Neon Tour

Openers: Luke Combs, Lauren Alaina, Dee Jay Silver

  • Aldean states they’re going to bring some of that raw energy out this summer with Luke and Lauren – “I know we’re all ready.”

Friday and Saturday June 8/9, Xfinity Center, Rascal Flatts Back to Us Tour

Openers: Dan+Shay, Carly Pearce

  • In a press release, Gary Levox quotes “I can’t describe how much we are looking forward to the tour this summer!” We’ve been lucky enough to be in a position to tour consistently throughout our career, and last year felt like the perfect time to reset as we focused on the release of our 10th album


Friday June 15/Saturday June 16 Fenway Park, Zac Brown Band Down the Rabbit Hole Tour

  • A 2017 review stated “few bands are able to pull it off to the degree that the Zac Brown Band can. The blend of voices with Brown, fiddler Jimmy De Martini, multi-instrumentalist John Driskell Hopkins, Cook – aided and abetted by a nearly night-long addition of Scott – made it something special.”

Friday July 6, Fenway Park, Luke Bryan Stadium Tour

Openers/Other Acts: Sam Hunt, Jon Pardi, Morgan Wallen

Sam Hunt and Luke Bryan are strong, different voices. Sam Hunt is known to break genre roles and sing what sounds good, while Luke Bryan is known for a more classic country music style. The mesh of both sounds is going to make for an amazing show.

Saturday July 21, Xfinity Center, Miranda Lambert & Little Big Town: The Bandwagon Tour

Openers:Little Big Town, Turnpike Troubadours, Tenille Townes

A recent review called Lambert “the rare heroine to the alt-country crowd as well as a mainstream country superstar.


Saturday August 4th, Xfinity Center, Keith Urban: Graffiti U World Tour

Opener: Kelsea Ballerini

Saturday August 25. Gillette Stadium, Kenny Chesney Trip Around the Sun Tour

Openers: Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Brandon Lay

A review stated that “what distinguishes Chesney from other live performers is his voice, which sounds like it was ripped off the CD”


If you like Rock, Pop, or Rap


Thursday May 24, Post Malone and 21 Savage

People have stated that “There’s no question as to whether or not I would recommend seeing Post Malone live. He was beyond brilliant.”


June 5, Xfinity Center: Kendrick Lamar The Championship Tour

Openers: SZa, ScHoolboy, QJay, RockAb, SoulSiRLance, Skiiwalker

In a Kendrick Lamar show, one can expect “no shortage of fate swirling around this extraordinary artist – and no lack of thrills either.


Jun 6: Imagine Dragons Evolve Tour Xfinity Center

Opener: Grace VanderWaal

A reviewer stated, “Imagine Dragons managed to make an arena full of over 20,000 people feel like an intimate show, I can safely say I will do everything in my power not to miss Imagine Dragons the next time they come around.”

June 8, Xfinity Center, Logic

Openers: NF, Kyle

Logic is known to be a concert with heartfelt preambles and a quick and wordy flow where every syllable is intelligible. There’s no missing his twin themes

Kiss Concert: June 17, Xfinity Center

Tuesday June 26, TD Garden Sam Smith: The Thrill of It All Tour

It feels as if he’s performing the songs rather than inhabiting them, a problem when they’re mostly concerned with soul-baring expressions of romantic despair.


Thursday July 26/Friday July 27/Saturday July 28 Gilette Stadium, Taylor Swift Reputation Tour

Openers: Camila Cabello, Charli XCX

In her concerts, Swift is known to “have substance to go with style”, making her concerts unforgettable.

Be sure to check out some of the amazing concerts this summer!
