Music fans with a good few years under their belts have felt their world rocked of late by the untimely passing of some of the musicians they’ve grown up listening to. The brighter news is that a slew of bands that emerged in decades well past are still going strong and even continue to tour. Here's a sampling of a few of our old favorites (in a few cases, what’s left of them!) who might soon be playing at a venue near your present home, or failing that, a place you’d like to build a trip around. This list was assembled just as a taster, and the dates indicated don’t represent the extent of an artist’s tour. For tickets, a good starting point either is www.eventim.com or the artist’s home page.
Beth Hart plays Frankfurt May 27; Dortmund May 29; Grolloo, Netherlands, June 3; and Ludwigsburg, Germany, June 6.
