Rufus Wainwright, Bon Jovi announce Tacoma dates

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Rufus Wainwright and Bon Jovi lead a growing list of recently announced concerts coming to the Seattle area later this year.

Singer-songwriter Wainwright will perform October 30 at Tacoma's Pantages Theater, located downtown and accessible via the city's free light-rail system from the Tacoma Dome station. I didn't receive any press notes for this upcoming tour, but his trans-Atlantic itinerary is likely to promote last year's release Out of the Game, which was produced by Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen). The album included a slew of guest artists, from Sean Lennon to Wilco to Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner. The American-Canadian musician, making his first Northwest appearance since getting hitched to Jörn Weisbrodt almost a year ago, usually plays songs from his earlier recordings at all of his shows, and since the Tacoma gig is being billed as 'An Evening with Rufus Wainwright,' I can only assume his set list will be a mix of new and old material. Tickets, priced at $66 and $86, go on sale June 14 through www.broadwaycenter.org. The Pantages is a fairly intimate venue, seating just over 1,000.

Rock supergroup Bon Jovi has also locked down a Tacoma date on their 'Because We Can - The Tour,' set to play the T-Dome on October 5. The Grammy-winning band is currently performing in Europe with stops in Denmark, Poland, Germany, Portugal, Italy, and the U.K., before launching an aggressive itinerary from July through December in both North and South America, Asia, and Australia. The road outing is to support Bon Jovi's newest full-length effort, What About Now, which came out three months ago and features two hit singles, 'Because We Can' and the title track. The concert is rumored to include nostalgic songs from the New Jersey natives' resume, such as 'Livin' on a Prayer,' 'You Give Love a Bad Name,' 'It's My Life,' and 'Keep the Faith.' Tickets for Bon Jovi go on sale June 10 (10 a.m.) through Ticketmaster and at the Tacoma Dome box office.

Elsewhere, Grammy-nominated The Lumineers have confirmed back-to-back shows at Marymoor Park on September 20 and 21; the Yeah Yeahs Yeahs play Marymoor on August 12; Andrew Stockdale (of Wolfmother, whom I've met before) is performing solo at Neumos on August 22; and former twink idol Aaron Carter will appear at El Corazon on November 22 (apparently, he sings).
