Guns N’ Roses – Not in Their Lifetime Tour- Oct 19, Capitol One Arena
Bands don’t come any bigger than Guns N’ Roses, they are rock and roll royalty. Thirty years have passed since the group unleashed their debut album Appetite for Destruction which has sold approximately 30 million copies worldwide to date, making it the best-selling debut of all time. Despite the unbelievable success and idol worship of fans, an acrimonious split of the original line up in 1996 put an end to any hope the world would ever again see the original band perform in all their glory. That’s what makes this tour so spectacular, the Not In This Lifetime Tour is probably this decades hottest event. The tour is already listed as the tenth highest-grossing concert tour of all-time and it’s not over yet! so don’t miss out on your chance to see Guns N’Roses Legends perform!
Chris Rock- Total Blackout Tour, Oct 18-21, The Theater at MGM National Harbor National Harbor, MD
Chris Rock is one of the most prominent stand-up comedians of our time. Rock first rose to fame as a member of Saturday Night Live and later went on to build his career in acting, producing and directing, winning four Emmys and three Grammy Awards.
Rock is also a New York Times best-selling author and the mastermind behind the Emmy nominated sitcom Everybody Hates Chris, which Rock based on his own experiences of growing up. This is probably what Rock is best known for, his comedic observations of everyday life, observations which touch on family, politics, race and class.
It’s unsurprising then, given his impressive portfolio of work that Rock hasn’t toured in nine years. After such a long wait he will be hitting up Washington with his full-scale world tour in nine years titled The Total Blackout Tour, a name taken from his pre-Oscars tweet where he promised a “#blackout” at the Academy Awards he was hosting in 2016.
Josh Turner – Oct 29, The Theater at MGM National Harbor
Acclaimed country music artist Josh Turner has earned much acclaim over the years with multiple award nominations and album sales in excess of 12 million. Turner took some time out following the great success of his last studio album “Punching Bag” in 2012 and has returned with his latest studio album “Deep South” which was released in March of this year. He clearly hasn’t lost his touch as the album has marked his third No. 1 album on the US Top Country Albums Chart and is creating a storm among country music fans.
