Geezer Summer Tours
by Barry Walters | July 10, 2013
Summer's here and the time is right for geezers in the arenas! It's true that there's an onslaught of pop acts making the rounds this season and the next, a wave of activity we've celebrated in our Pop Stars on Tour playlist. But there's also an equally monumental surge of veteran rockers hitting the boards either now or in the coming months -- Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, The Beach Boys, Elton John, ZZ Top, Steely Dan, Pearl Jam, Rush, The Steve Miller Band, The Doobie Brothers and many others.
But aside from a recently reunited Black Sabbath, few of these old-timers have new material: Warm weather tours are typically about hits, hits and more hits. So we've put together a playlist heavy on songs they're sure to play, universal anthems of classic rock and sun block, but also snuck in some that will only play in the concerts of our dreams. At least this doesn't require a designated driver.
