Blurring the lines between alternative rock, jazz, funk, metal, bluegrass and other genres still, Umphrey's McGee exploded out of the contemporary Jam Scene in the early 2000's with an inimitable fusion of improvisation and progressive rock. The unorthodox innovators are currently touring the US on the back of their latest release 'Similar Skin'.
After the December release their first LP in eight years, Strangers to Ourselves, Modest Mouse are unequivocally back and ready to take on North America one more time with an extensive summer tour.
Rise Against still hold firm to the principal that punk should be about something, railing against political inequality and oppressive social forces with blistering riffs and fist-pumping, no-holds-barred sheer force of will. Joining them are metal rockers Killswitch, Engage and Letlive.
Rock icons Smashing Pumpkins and Marilyn Manson are launching a joint tour across North America in 2015, playing in support of their most recent offerings, Monuments to an Elegy and The Pale Emperor.
Celebrating those songs which made him pick up his guitar in the first place, Bryan Adams is touring his covers record Tracks of My years across North America in 2014.

Jazz rock greats are embarking on an extensive tour this summer, which includes a couple of headlining slots at Coachella, and they'll be joined by a very special support act - Elvis Costello and his band The Imposters. Coming to prominence in the 1970s, Steely Dan have one of the greatest catalogues of any still-touring rock band, and though the line-up has changed considerably over the years, founding members Walter Becker and Donald Fagen are still going strong.
