If you love guitars and guitarists, then you probably also love the arrival of the summer concert season. Rock music and the summer were made for each other, and this year the stars (on stage and in the sky) will be out once again, primarily at open-air venues and festivals from coast-to-coast – and we can’t wait.
Along with the hundreds of major and not-so-major musical acts touring this summer, some of our favorite guitarists will be hitting the road, including:
- Prince: Welcome 2 America / 21 Nite Stand at the Forum in Inglewood, CA. (Prince Miniature Guitar)
- Bootsy Collins & the Funk University at Bonnaroo, June 9-12 in Manchester, TN (Bootsy Collins “Space Bass” Miniature)
- RUSH Time Machine Tour 2011, a dozen dates in June in select cities across North America, from Greenville, SC to Vanvouver, BC, during which they play their entire Moving Pictures album and more. Here is some exclusive concert footage presented by RollingStone.com from the April 12 performance by Rush at Madison Square Garden. (Rush Miniature Guitars)
These are just a few of the great musicians who will be playing live concerts this summer, so no matter your taste in music, get out to a hot summer show and Rock Your Passion.
