THE SUMMER’S BEST MUSIC IS ON IT’S WAY
Fans of live music in the St. Louis area always have something to look forward to. With so many venues that cater to so many different tastes, you can always find a concert near you that you will absolutely love. From rock to pop to classical, concert venues have been providing quality entertainment in St. Louis for years.
One of the great things about living in or near St. Louis is that you can see both the biggest touring concerts in the country and also head over to some fantastic small venues to support local artists.
VERIZON WIRELESS AMPITHEATRE
Since the summer is finally here, the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre is in the midst of its annually anticipated concert season. Once again, the amphitheater is bringing in some big names in the rock, pop, and country circles.
This summer, classic rock is alive at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. Coming to town are Sammy Hagar, Journey, The Steve Miller Band, ZZ Top, and KISS. Tickets for these popular bands are sure to go fast, but luckily the amphitheater can seat up to 20,000 people.
SCOTT TRADE CENTER
Another hot stop for big name artists is the Scott Trade Center. Usually home to the St. Louis Blues, the stadium opens its doors to some huge concerts during the post-hockey season. This August, pop sensations Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry will both be performing at Scott Trade.
If you are a fan, you will want to get tickets as soon as you possibly can. Tickets to Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry also make excellent birthday gifts for the younger people in your life.
THE FABULOUS FOX THEATRE
This venue also brings in some fantastic touring musicians. Many people think of the Fabulous Fox Theatre as a venue for Broadway tours, but the theatre is actually open to touring productions of varying kinds including concerts, stand-up comedians, and more. This year, the Fox will be hosting some very exciting musicians. Ringo Starr and his All Star Band will be stopping at the Fox on October 3rd.
Modern rock fans will also be lining up to see Jack White perform for a St. Louis audience on July 20th. The Fox Theatre is a significantly smaller venue than the Scott Trade Center and Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre so getting your tickets early is an absolute must.
SUPPORT LOCAL ARTISTS AND SMALL VENUES
Another smaller venue that always draws fantastic artists and good crowds is the Pageant Theatre located in the Delmar Loop. The Pageant is known for showcasing up and coming artists and popular indie rock bands, making it a popular nighttime destination for the college set. Many of the bands that come through the Pageant have a very large underground following, so tickets tend to sell out very quickly. Beck’s concert on July 16th has already sold out, but there is still time to get tickets for some other great concerts such as Social Distortion, Ingrid Michaelson, and Old Crowe Medicine Show.
For a more casual atmosphere, there are also tons of smaller clubs in the city that are known for hosting excellent musical acts. The famous Blueberry Hill showcases local artists as well as smaller touring bands. If you are lucky, you might be able to catch Chuck Berry himself in concert at Blueberry Hill. Keep in mind that tickets to his concerts sell like lightening.
Other fantastic spot for smaller bands is Midtown’s the Firebird or Pop’s located in Sauget Illinois. When you live in the St. Louis area, your concert choices are endless. Music fans of every genre can always find a venue showcasing some fantastic artists both well known, up and coming, and local. To learn more about concerts that are coming your way, catch our blogs.
