Plenty of concerts on tap for the summer

Here is a look at some concerts of interest planned for Indianapolis:

Taylor Swift & Vance Joy: Taylor Swift may be at the peak of her career right now. Her switch from country to pop was one of the smartest decisions she’s made in my opinion. So it makes sense that she would tour along with Vance Joy, who had one of the biggest singles of 2014, “Riptide.” They’re coming to Bankers Life Fieldhouse September 16.

St. Vincent: St. Vincent is an American art rock/indie pop artist, and she’s really good. Her latest album, which is self titled, won her first grammy in the Best Alternative Music category Coming to the Egyptian Room May 29.

Sufjan Stevens has been around since 1999. This tour for him will be his first in very, very long time. He is also returning to his roots with more folk. Coming to the Murat Theatre April 18.

Primus: Primus released Primus and the Chocolate Factory last year, and the second set of each show this tour will be that album. I’ve heard that album a lot, but it would be cool to see it live, which I’ve heard is the ideal way to listen to it. Coming to the Murat Theatre April 12.

Dave Matthews Band: The Dave Matthews Band has been around since 1991. They fall into the more “jam band” type scene, which isn’t a bad thing at all. I’ve never seen them, but I have heard from many people that their live shows are outstanding. Plus, our journalism teacher Tom Hayes goes to see them every year so they get his endorsement. Coming to the Klipsch Music Center July 17-18.

The 2015 Jiffy Lube Country Megaticket: Starting with Lady Antebellum on May 16, the Country Megaticket is Klipsch’s Country summer concert series. It features Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley.
