the best summer tours of 2012

summer concerts and festivals

Nothing beats an outdoor concert, and this year there are a plethora of tours to choose from. To make things easy on you, we broke down which shows are must-sees — and why.

Steve Aoki  – Leave the ticket stub laying on the backseat of your car for a little tendy cred.

Katy Perry  – Sure you consider your musical tastes a little above Katy Perry, but let’s face it, her tunes are catchy. And who doesn’t want to make out to Teenage Dream?

Justin Bieber – We’re not suggesting you really want to see the beebs, but you probably have a younger cousin or niece who does…wink, wink.

Aerosmith Global Warming Tour  – No matter how many bands come and go, Aerosmith always seems to keep their cool factor. Just know that you may run into your parents at the show.

Wiz Khalifa  – One of the top stars of 2012, this is one performer you don’t want to miss.

Beach Boys – This group basically invented the endless summer. Grab some tickets and indulge!

Madonna – If you were too young to get into one of her shows in the ’80s ( or the ’90s), here’s your chance to get up close and personal with the material girl.

Lady Antebellum – Deep down we all have a little country in our hearts, at least this group doesn’t make us feel guilty about it.

Journey – If you’ve ever seen Glee then you probably love Journey. Give up the fight, go buy some tix and see them in person.

Duran Duran  – Three  words: “80s Dance Party.”
