Featuring two of the early 70s most iconic rock bands on the reunion bandwagon and a tour co-headlined by two of the biggest chart acts of the 00s, the capital city’s live schedule this summer is undeniably impressive. Here’s a look at five of the biggest names who have released Washington DC Concert tickets for shows over the next two months.
Hooking up with original guitarist Bernie Leadon for the first time since his departure in 1975, The Eagles will stop off at the Verizon Center on July 22 for a nostalgic trawl through forty years of classic country-rock. Coinciding with the release of their History Of The Eagles documentary, the six-time Grammy winners will no doubt revisit their number one singles “Best Of My Love,” “One Of These Nights,” “Heartache Tonight” and of course their signature hit, “Hotel California.” While their recent Las Vegas warm-up show also featured solo performances from Joe Walsh and Don Henley alongside covers of tracks by Steve Young and James Gang. The Eagles tickets are available on TiqIQ at a get-in price of $98 and average price of $288.
One of the biggest superstars of her generation will then take to the stage at the same venue on July 29 and 30 with Beyonce tickets on sale for the first date at a get-in price of $125 and average price of $463 and the second at $95/$315. Alongside a handful of new tracks from her much-anticipated fifth studio album, fans should also look forward to a spectacular array of special effects and choreography and a hit-packed set covering everything from her days in Destiny’s Child (“Survivor”) right up to her recent Grammy Award-winning single “Love On Top.”
Celebrating the incredible achievement of scoring a first US number one album 45 years after forming, one of the heavy metal scene’s true pioneers will play Bristow’s Jiffy Lube Live on August 2 with Black Sabbath tickets currently on offer on TiqIQ at a get-in price of $56 and average price of $224. The band’s first North American tour with original frontman Ozzy Osbourne since 2005 will no doubt feature plenty of material from the chart-topping 13. But their recent shows Down Under also focused just as much on their hugely influential early records Black Sabbath, Paranoid and Masters Of Reality.
Despite his serious health scare earlier this year, Lil Wayne shows no signs of slowing with the 40-date America’s Most Wanted festival scheduled to kick off next week. Visiting the Verizon Center on August 2, the Young Money Entertainment founder will be joined by a live band for a journey through many of his record-breaking 109 Billboard chart entries alongside support slots from T.I., 2 Chainz, Hit Boy and G-Eazy. There are still nearly 2000 Lil Wayne tickets for this veritable feast of hip-hop waiting to be snapped up on TiqIQ with a get-in price of $106 and average price of $211.
Previously the territory of alt-rock bands, there have been more Honda Civic tour tickets released in 2013 than at any other point in its 12-year-history thanks to the choice of two mainstream pop acts as its headliners. Stopping off at Jiffy Lube Live on September 7, Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson tickets are still available to buy on TiqIQ for this show at a get-in price of $56 and average price of $308. Alongside a support slot from The Voice contestant Tony Lucca, expect to hear a whole host of number ones including “Moves Like Jagger” and “My Life Would Suck Without You” and all the hits from their respective recent LPs, Overexposed and Stronger.
