Down, Rival Sons, Soundgarden, Volbeat, Marilyn Manson, Black Veil Brides, Flogging Molly to Tour Seattle

Help Get The Word Out By Sharing This With Your Friends

As promised, I have some USA tour dates to report on.  It’s only fitting that since I am from Seattle that I cover the local scene.  Between now and the end of March we have a few great shows coming to town so hurry and get your tickets before they are sold out.  I hate to have to report that Soundgarden has already sold out their two shows in Seattle as well as their show in Vancouver, B.C., but you can still get tickets from legitimate ticket brokers, it will just cost a lot more.   So who is coming to town and note worthy enough to mention?  Down, Rival Sons, Soundgarden, Marilyn Manson, In Flames (Vancouver, B.C. is the closest gig they have), Black Veil Brides, Flogging Molly, and Volbeat. If you are outside of the Seattle area check each bands website, most are touring the USA and Canada now or will be soon.

Here’s the run down of dates and venues in the Seattle area:

Down January 22, 2013 Seattle, WA Showbox at the Market
Rival Sons January 29, 2013 Seattle, WA Tractor Tavern
Soundgarden February 7, 2013 Seattle, WA Paramount
