So, the summer is here and with that means plenty of free time if you are under the age of 18...LOL. But if you are not I completely understand. Cause I have no free time and I am only 22. Well, the point of this post is to give you some options for summer concert tours. A plethora of artist started their concerts in the earlier part of April and they are winding down, but there are some that are gearing up. I have listed several for you to google. So, have fun and make sure you put your sunblock on... SPF 25 or higher just so you know...:)

If you want more tours feel free to go by ticketmaster and pick the genre of music you want to hear. A lot of artist like Usher, Lil Wayne, Lyfe & Anthony Hamilton are playing at various locations but have not posted tour dates yet. And don't forget to check your cities website too. Because I know some cities to do free concerts in the park
