It was another big week for touring bands, with 21 new rock and metal tours and five festivals announced this past week.

Leading the way was Pearl Jam, who announced two North American legs along with some global tour dates for 2024. This came with the announcement of their new Dark Matter album which is available to pre-order now.

Theatrical metallers Avatar will cross the pond for dates in May. Plus, you've got more co-headlining dates with In This Moment and Motionless in White on the way. And if you want to see some rock legends at work, Robert Plant is heading back out with Alison Krauss and Neil Young is taking his longtime collaborators Crazy Horse back on tour.
