As 2011 comes to an end, concert fans start buzzing about what concerts will be the "must-see" concerts of 2012 and therefore, worth traveling for, no matter how far you may be from the venue. U2, The Rolling Stones and Guns N Roses have all held the title in the past and here's what us live music lovers can expect for big shows in 2012 worth traveling for...
Red Hot Chili Peppers
With a new album and a big tour in Europe the rest of 2011, the Chili Peppers are sure to visit North America with a bang in 2012.
Coldplay hasn't toured the states since 2009 and simply...they're due. I'd recommend traveling to a show near you this year just in case we might have to wait another year to see them.
Dave Matthews Band
So, they "technically" didn't tour in 2011, I think it's safe to expect a big tour in 2012.
The Black Keys
With much recent success - especially their great live show reviews - and announcement of their European tour, The Black Keys will definitely be a concert tour to travel for in 2012.
Best Western hotels are along the way during these tour stops, so go to bestwestern.com before you hit the road and find one closest to your concert of choice!
