20 New Rock + Metal Tours + Four Festivals Announced This Week

It was a lighter week with 20 new rock and metal tours and four significant festival announcements this past week. Let’s take a look at what got announced.

The big tour of the week was Korn hitting the road this fall with Gojira and Spiritbox providing support. But they’re not the only significant tour. Fozzy will be hitting the road on a 25th anniversary trek. Sleeping With Sirens are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their Let’s Cheers This album. And you’ve also got a major late summer / early fall run for Twenty One Pilots as well.

On the festival front, the All Your Friends Festival and Loud As Hell Open Air will be keeping Canadian music fans rocking, while Toledo Death Fest and the Full Terror Assault Open Air festivals have some new updates.

Which concerts will you be seeing? Are you picking up tickets for one of the festivals? See what new tour and festival announcements were made this past week.
