After months of talks about the possibility of their playing, the Rolling Stones agreed this week, and the concert organizers are thrilled. Included in the June 28-30 concert lineup are The Arctic Monkeys, Professor Green, Dizzee Rascal, Mumford and Sons, Primal Scream, Elvis Costello, and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

Now fully recovered from vocal cord surgery, John Mayer is back and ready for a 40-city tour, kicking off at Milwaukee’s Summerfest in early July. Phillip Phillips will be the opener for the tour, which will wrap in LA in October, and will be the first for the singer in three years. Mayer reports that he has newfound appreciation for his voice and music, and can’t wait to get back on the road.
Australian country singer Keith Urban released his 2013 tour schedule, set to launch immediately after his season as judge on American Idol ends in mid-May. It is rumored that concertgoers will hear his brand new tracks before they’re released anywhere else, because the album he is working on isn’t finished yet. His tour will take him across the US until the final show, scheduled for December 8th in Louisville.
