Admit it. It isn’t a rare thing for you to get a Maroon 5 song stuck irrevocably in your head. The band’s catchy tunes, along with lead singer Adam Levine’s unique vocals, make Maroon 5 tickets a hot commodity.

This summer they will be embarking on the 2013 Honda Civic Tour. As if the prospect of seeing Maroon 5 in concert does not thrill you enough, also on the tour will be Kelly Clarkson. The tour begins August 1, so there’s still time to buy your tickets. Don’t wait too long — you might miss out.

If you’re among the throngs of fans who are touched by the lovely vocal harmonies and clean lyrics of this band, latch onto the opportunity to see them live. Be careful not to swoon!

Beyoncé returned to the stage earlier this year after giving birth to her daughter, and this spring and summer she’s on tour for her “Mrs. Carter Show” world tour. While the tour doesn’t feature anything new or shocking, it still thrills fans.

Speaking of her first performance on stage since giving birth, a New York Times article said, “she performed with serious stamina and rigor.” says that this tour will likely have a lot “that her fans will be super excited about.”

She has fans all around the world, so it’s no surprise to note that her concerts are among the most anticipated of the summer.
