More Info

Foster The People: Few bands have been able to have a top 10 album as quickly as indie pop up-and-comers Foster the People. With only one album out, Torches, Foster the People has captured the attention of audiences around the world with their hit single, "Pumped Up Kicks." Their success is all the more surprising considering the song deals with a school shooting, but the catchy dance sound that's indicative of the entire album has struck a favorable chord with critics and fans. Those that haven't yet heard Foster the People can catch them on their international tour dates in 2011; the ones that haven't sold out yet, anyway.

Foster the People was formed by Mark Foster in 2009, after years of being kicked around by the Los Angeles music scene. After working as a jingle writer and working on original compositions for a number of years, Foster began combining his favorite musical elements into the sound you hear today. He began posting his songs on the mp3 blog The Hype Machine and eventually began scoring small tour dates, with accompaniment by drummer Mark Pontius and bassist Cubbie Fink. The band was originally called Foster & the People, but was changed after audiences kept mishearing it as Foster the People. The popularity of Foster the People's music online combined with a breakout tour date at South by Southwest led to a record deal and the release of Torches in May 2011. The album quickly broke into the top 10 and shot to #1 of the Alternative charts.

As Torches races towards platinum certification, Foster the People are headed out on many, many tour dates in 2011. Concert dates are already underway and, while many tour dates are already sold out, there are still plenty of chances to catch Foster the People in late summer/early fall. The band is making it's way through tour dates in Texas and Arizona before ending up in California in early July. On July 14, Foster the People will begin concert dates in Europe, including performances at the Melt Festival in Grafenhainichen, Germany and the Lattitude Festival in Suffolk, UK. Foster the people will play tour dates in Australia in late July before touring the US agin from August to October. Foster the People will conclude their 2011 tour dates in the UK in late November, so buy your tickets from Eventful soon before the entire tour is sold out.

The Killers: Before indie rock became so prolific in recent years that most bands are now casually dismissed into the "indie landfill", there was The Killers. Upon the release of their acclaimed single "Mr. Brightside", The Killers thrust indie rock into the upper echelons of mainstream popularity, making their tour dates and albums widely sought after. Despite their origins in Las Vegas, The Killers' synth-infused style has become hugely popular with fans around the world, particularly in the UK. Despite the band's members stating that it might take them a while to release, and it being the cause of no tour dates in 2011, fans are excited about The Killers' upcoming album; their first in three years.

After playing at clubs locally in Las Vegas, The Killers experienced success in the UK thanks to the single "Mr. Brightside." That success spread to the US and other parts of the world with the release of Hot Fuss, which went platinum six times and featured the hit singles "Somebody Told Me" and "Smile Like You Mean It." The Killers followed-up with Sam's Town in 2006, which experienced nearly the same success as their debut effort. The album was succeeded by a number of headlining tour dates, including memorable performances at Madison Square Garden and Glastonbury Festival.

The Killers' third album, Day & Age, received even better reviews than Sam's Town and also went multi-platinum. With The Killers' continued success fans can't wait to see what the indie band has planned next; even though they'll have to. Be sure to check Eventful once the album is released for all the latest 2011 tour date information.

Walk the Moon: “It’s okay to play,” insists Nicholas Petricca, lead singer, songwriter, and keyboardist of Ohio quartet Walk the Moon. It’s a hard point to argue after a listen to the lead single off their album I Want! I Want!, dance-rock extravaganza “Anna Sun.” I Want! I Want! has you dancing quickly. Very quickly. So it is no surprise that the response to the band has been just as immediate. Surrounding a reactive SXSW appearance, the band has already been featured as Nylon Magazine’s Band Crush, as a Hot New Band by SPIN Magazine, as a New York Post band “You Must Know,” and in the Spotlight of Last Call with Carson Daly. Walk the Moon is poised for an explosive rise.

Walk the Moon shows are nothing short of electric. Petricca, with bassist Kevin Ray, guitarist Eli Maiman and drummer Sean Waugaman, (all Ohio natives) streak, dot and smear their faces in paint before every performance. Eager crowds predictably join in the fun and by the end, even the most staunch skeptics are in the colorful mix. Respected regulars in the Cincinnati and Columbus club scenes, the boys, all in their early twenties, have garnered notable respect from fans and bands alike in their first few ventures to major markets. Walk the Moon combine impressive musicianship with what the New York Post deems their “unrestrainable love for performing.” It is a truly contagious mix.

Matching what NME’s Jaimie Hodgson called “air strike choruses” with careful songwriting, Walk the Moon are dynamic - noticeably more than a “buzz band.” They cite Talking Heads, The Police and The Killers as inspiration, both in writing and performing, not to mention a tribute to Bowie with a thumping rendition of “Let’s Dance.” I Want! I Want! is thoughtful and youthful at once, a perfect reflection of the band. Walk the Moon may very soon grow out of the clubs they play now (they’ve already sold out in advance of their first headlining New York show), but they are a band you don’t want to grow up all the way. After all, they possess an enviable spirit, one devoted to just plain having fun. And who doesn’t like fun?

Weezer's first concert performance was on the opening stage for Matrix star Keanu Reeves and his band Dogstar in 1992. They were signed to Geffen Records in 1993 and headed to the studio with The Cars frontman, Ric Ocasek, to produce their self-titled debut album dubbed the "Blue Album". The lead-off single "Undone-The Sweater Song" was an immediate top ten hit on modern rock radio. It was with their second single "Buddy Holly" and its iconic video that the band reached cult status. The single won Weezer the Breakthrough Video Award and Best Alternative Music Video at the MTV Video Music Awards. The album featured one more hit single, "Say It Ain't So", and was certified triple-Platinum and remains their highest selling album to-date.

In the aftermath of the success, Weezer tour dates were scheduled internationally to play to their burgeoning audience. The band returned to the studio in 1994 and released their sophomore album Pinkerton in 1996. While the single "El Scorcho" was a hit on radio, the album was not properly promoted due to a legal issue and subsequently suffered through slow initial sales. Weezer tour dates were scheduled to promote the album before a hiatus beginning in 1997. During this time, Rivers attended Harvard and focused his efforts towards his song-writing. The band reunited in 2000 for a spot on the Fuji Festival in Japan which reinvigorated their appetite for recording. Weezer tour dates were scheduled on the 2000 Warped Tour and they recorded their album Weezer.

The self-titled third album, popularly known as The Green Album, was released in 2000 and brought Weezer back to mainstream acclaim. The initial singles "Hash Pipe" and "Island in the Sun" were MTV video hits and radio smashes. They quickly returned with Maladroit in 2002 which featured a heavier more serious sound. Weezer concert dates were booked on the Maladroit Enlightenment Tour and they recorded in-between shows. They headed back into the recording studio with famed producer Rick Rubin to craft Make Believe. the album was released in 2005 and featured their biggest hit to-date, "Beverly HIlls", which reached #1 on the Modern Rock Songs chart. The Weezer concert schedule included the Make Believe Tour and a Japan-wide concert series in 2005.

More recently, Weezer cut their sixth album with Rick Rubin, which was colloquially known as the The Red Album. The disc featured their second #1 hit, "Porks and Beans", which won a Grammy for Best Short Form Music Video. Weezer tour dates were scheduled alongside Blink 182 for a nation-wide outing and they wrote songs for their upcoming album, Radittude, which was released in 2010. Weezer's concert schedule included headlining stints at the Bamboozle Festival and Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in 2010. Weezer released their latest studio album, Hurley, and a compilation of rarities, Death to False Metal, in 2011 . The Weezer concert schedule 2011 will have the rockers traversing the globe. The band has been rockin' their quirky rock anthems for nearly two decades. Don't miss a date on the Weezer concert schedule 2011.
