Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen announce Seattle concerts

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Make way for the Queen and the Boss! Both of these music superiors are coming to Seattle very soon.

First up, Beyonce. The mega star followed her super performance during the big football game last weekend with an announcement of a world tour, which includes a stop in Seattle, on May 18, her only appearance in the Northwest. 'The Formation Tour' launches April 27 in Miami and includes shows in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Boston, New York City, London, Düsseldorf, Amsterdam, Paris, Stockholm and its final destination, Brussels. Queen Bey is teaming up with TXH Ltd. to provide the highest quality audio experience, so even though she's playing football and soccer stadiums fans will still get a state-of-the-art sound. She's also partnering with United Way to assist with relief efforts for the contaminated water crisis in Flint, Michigan. This is the first solo tour for Ms. Carter since 2013; her previous outing was summer 2014 when she hit the road with rap maestro/hubby Jay Z. Tickets for Beyonce at CenturyLink Field go on sale to the general public on February 22 (10 a.m.) at LiveNation.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, or charge by phone 1-800-745-3000. Members of her official fan club, The Beyhive (Twitter: @BeyHive), will have access to a pre-sale beginning February 15, as will American Express cardholders.

Bruce Springsteen had already secured a date for Key Arena, when he announced an extension of 'The River Tour' a couple weeks ago, though the exact date was not confirmed until this week. The Boss and his E Street Band are set to play Seattle on March 24, promoting his latest release, The Ties That Bind: The River Collection, a boxed set containing The River original album, along with outtakes, unreleased songs and a two-hour concert film from 1980. This is the first time in years that the veteran rocker will perform in Seattle, something his local fans will appreciate as they don't have to plan trips to San Francisco or Vancouver to see him in action. Aside from songs on The River, Springsteen has also been rotating classic tunes from his lengthy catalog onto his set lists for this tour, including 'Brilliant Disguise,' 'Dancing in the Dark,' 'The Rising,' 'Born to Run' and 'Hungry Heart.' Tickets for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band go on sale February 12 (10 a.m.) at LiveNation.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, or charge by phone 1-800-745-3000.

Daryl Hall & John Oates have also booked an upcoming show. The pop duo will appear September 9 at White River Amphitheatre with soul-funk outfit Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, along with Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. Other stops on the 21-city tour include Washington DC, Chicago, Las Vegas and Boston. Hall & Oates, as they're more commonly known, released a long string of hit singles from 1973 to 1985, such as 'Maneater,' 'Kiss on My List,' 'You Make My Dreams,' 'I Can't Go For That (No Can Do),' 'She's Gone,' 'Out of Touch,' and 'Adult Education.' They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014. Sharon Jones and her crew have released an acclaimed set of albums since 2002 and earned their first Grammy nomination for 2014's Give the People What They Want. And, you might recall Trombone Shorty joining Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Madonna and Queen Latifah on the Grammy stage a couple of years ago when they collaboratively performed 'Same Love,' where several Gay and Lesbian couples tied the knot. Tickets go on sale February 13 (10 a.m.) at LiveNation.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, or charge by phone 1-800-745-3000.

There's more. Pentatonix, who opened for Kelly Clarkson last summer, will headline a concert at WaMu Theater on April 27, Andrew Bird will perform at The Showbox Market on May 19 and The Lumineers, who recorded their first album here in the Seattle area, will appear June 3 at Marymoor Park. Tickets for all these shows will be available at axs.com.

Finally, farewell to Maurice White, founding member of legendary R&B group Earth, Wind & Fire who passed away last week. He was, truly, one of the most gifted musicians. If you've never listened to the band's music, start with 'Fantasy' and 'September.'
