Sam Smith - July 4th, 2018:  Wells Fargo Center

You'll be feeling patriotic one way or another on that fine Wednesday, but just picture the authenticity if you're watching a British songwriter's concert on July 4th!  That's right, Sam Smith is coming across the pond, and he'll be at the Wells Fargo Center on Independence Day.  He's a proud advocate with the voice of a superstar, and we, personally, are making sure to make it to this one.  I mean, otherwise, what's there to do other than tempt fate with amateur fireworks exhibitions?  Yeah, that's what we thought, too...see you at the Sam Smith concert.

Demi is steam heat incarnate when she rolls out of bed, so picture if you can what the atmosphere will be like at her only East Coast show of the summer...on the AC Beach!  This woman is fierce, empowered, and truly, truly talented.  On a beach, in July, with her name in lights, it's going to be an amazing vibe at this show...the kind of live music that makes you feel good to be alive and want to give the stranger next to you a hug.  If anyone can have that effect, it's Demi.

Counting Crows - Saturday, August 11th:  BB&T Pavilion

The Counting Crows aren't just coming to Camden, they're bringing LIVE with them!

"25 years and counting" is the name of the show, and it's going to be a time-traveling adventure through past and present hits, and...who knows?...maybe few hits that have yet-to-be-born.  BB&T is the perfect venue for this event, and a lazy Saturday in August is the best time to strap on those flux capacitors and take a trip through decades of incredible music by  musicians who have the experience to truly know their craft.

Jason Mraz is bringing some good vibes to the Mann Center this August, along with special guest Brett Dennen.  Jason is hot off his run as the male lead in Broadway’s “Waitress”, for which he received such acclaim, his run was extended…twice.  The Good Vibes tour will be making even more of a name for the GRAMMY winner/performer, so you’ll definitely want to consider this show for your late summer’s pleasure.  Plus, the Mann combines a unique music-going experience with the beauty of an outdoor venue, so you can even claim you’re getting your Vitamin D as you cheer.

Ed Sheeran – September 27, 2018: Lincoln Financial Field

Ed Sheeran’s North American Tour stops by Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday night, September 27th.  Now, that’s quite a stretch to wait, but we would recommend re-watching his cameo on Game of Thrones, listening to his extensive library, and daydreaming about that dreamy accent.

Maroon 5 – October 12, 2018:  Wells Fargo Center

The 2018 Red Pill Blues tour promises to be one of Maroon 5’s best yet.  The tour name comes from the band’s 6th studio album, and don’t you think the little Matrix pop culture reference is clever???  This show is a great band at a great venue, and a great time is certain to be had by all.

Justin Timberlake Man of the Woods Tour – December 17, 2018 – Wells Fargo Center

It’s JT, he’s of the woods…what that means, we don’t know, we’re guessing we’ll find out when the album drops on February 2nd…and he’s coming to the Wells Fargo Center!  We’ll hold off from mentioning how absolutely gorgeous he is to instead focus on his musical talent…but, oh, look at that, we mentioned it.  Anyway, the first single off the new album, “Filthy”, sets the tone for what is sure to be an incredible concert-going experience.  Tickets are on sale Monday, January 29th, starting at 10 a.m., and we GUARANTEE they’re gonna go fast, so set a reminder, program an alert, write on your old-school calendar…whatever you need to do, do it, and we’ll see you there!
