Summer is just around the corner, and with it comes a whole new slew of date night options — from evenings at the ballpark to hitting the water for a little fun in the sun. However, one of our favorite summer date ideas will always be a concert under the stars. We caught up with Live Nation Tour Director Tyler Rutkin, who gave Datevitation the inside scoop on artists you can expect to see this summer, some of his favorite venues nationwide, and even a new Live Nation app that will help you keep your concert schedule organized.
Hot Tours This Summer: Some of the hottest acts hitting the road this summer include: Aerosmith, Jason Mraz, Dave Matthews Band, One Direction, Brad Paisley, Nicki Minaj and Pitbull. None of these excite you? Check out a full listing at www.LiveNation.com to see if your favorite artist is coming to a city near you.
Best Date Night Venues: Roadtrip anyone? Tyler’s personal favorite venues across the country are the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountainview, California, The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington, Comfort Dental Amphitheatre in Englewood, Colorado and the Comcast Center in Boston. His top choice for date night? “The Hollywood Bowl, definitely,” he tells us, “you can make a whole night of it – get dinner at the rooftop grill or pack a picnic. It’s an experience you can’t get at any other venue in the country.”
Stay Organized: Looking for a way to organize your concert schedule? Check out the new Live Nation Concert Calendar application. Based on your RSVPs, likes, activity of your friends, your location and the music you listen to with programs like Spotify or iHeartRadio, the app will make concert recommendations and allows you to find and manually add shows, so all your information is in one place and easily accessible. By enabling the Show Friends’ Events feature, you can even coordinate for a little double date action!
