Best Rock Tours Of 2013 | by Matthew Wilkening

Hey hey, my my, our countdown of the Best Rock Tours of 2013 proves that rock ‘n’ roll will never die. Once again, some of the biggest names in music history found ways to deliver new thrills for their fans. Several invited former bandmates back for special appearances, and many trotted out rarely heard songs. A couple of particularly generous legends squeezed themselves into intimate venues they’ve long since outgrown saleswise, and one even built themselves a giant mechanical monster — all in a quest to make you forget you still had to go back to work the next day. So here they are: the Best Rock Tours of 2013:
