I am going in May and I was just wondering who was touring Europe?
Or what are some good sites I can check out that will let me know detailed info about Bands touring Europe in 2009.

Or anything along these lines at all!

Thanks guys!

I’ve never found the perfect site for bands touring Europe.
Here is a concert ticket site that lists several bands such as the Killers, Pink etc
Concert Tickets
There’s What’s On When, but it’s more for festivals.
I see Bob Dylan will be touring there in the spring. Jackson Browne, too.
But there are bands other than dinosaur types that will be touring.

If you have iTunes, there’s a great little free app called iConcertCal — You enter a city, and it shows you any band in your itunes library that’s playing that city in a particular month on a nifty calendar. Very cool.

Wow that is a neat feature of Itunes but I no longer have that on my computer.
