Us Michiganders understand the struggle of many artists not coming to Michigan, or if they do come, performing somewhere near the vicinity of us; nonetheless, here are five of the most exciting shows coming to us in the summer of 2020!
- No Shame Tour
Check out their music video for No Shame off of their upcoming album.
Who: 5 Seconds of Summer and The Band CAMINO
When: Saturday, August 22
Where: Sterling Heights at the Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre
For: Their upcoming album “CALM” which is set to release at the end of March.
- How I’m Feeling Tour
Check out his music video for “For Now” off of the “~how i’m feeling~” album.
Who: Lauv with Maisie Peters and ROLE MODEL.
When: Tuesday, July 21
Where: Rochester Hills at the Meadow Brook Amphitheatre
For: The “~how i’m feeling~” album that came out this year.
- Manic Tour
Check out her music video for “You should be sad” off of the “Manic” album.
Who: Halsey with CHVRCHES, and Omar Apollo.
When: Friday, June 26.
Where: Clarkston at the DTE Energy Music Theatre.
For: The “Manic” album that came out this year.
- Sad Summer Fest
Check out this trailer released a few weeks ago for Sad Summer Fest.
Who: All Time Low with The Story So Far, Movements, The Maine, Yours Truly, Grayscale, and The Destroy Boys.
When: Friday, August 14.
Where: Pontiac at the Crofoot Festival Grounds.
For: As the headliners, All Time Low will be touring for the album “Wake up Sunshine” coming out in April, but will be playing songs from most of their previous albums. Some fan favorites, and some songs that they haven’t played live ever and some they haven’t placed much of.
- Common Ground Music Festival
Check out this live version of “I Really Wish I Hated You” off of the “NINE” album.
Who: Blink 182 with The Used, Grandson, and The Legal Immigrants.
When: Friday, July 10th.
Where: Lansing at the Cooley Law School Stadium.
For: Since this is only one show, I feel as if Blink 182 will play a few songs off of NINE and then play mostly fan-favorites from the years and the supporting artists will probably do the same with playing a few newer songs and then their most popular ones.
This is nowhere near all of the artists that are coming to Michigan this summer, just some of the ones I’m most excited about and that you probably haven’t heard about (unless you’ve been following these artists closely). I already have tickets for Sad Summer Fest and Common Ground Music Festival, but I’ll surely be buying a few more after seeing who’s performing near me.
