It’s entertaining just looking at the names of some of the tours taking over Granite State stages this weekend.
Case in point: Slightly Stoopid’s How I Spent My Vacation Tour and Luke Combs’ Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour are both headed to the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford.
From country to grunge and classic rock to metal, this weekend’s lineup has a bit of everything, including a sense of humor. Here’s what in store:
Slightly Stoopid, which released the album “Everyday Life, Everyday People” last year, will play the Pavilion on Friday night. Matisyahu, Tribal Seeds and Hirie will open the 6 p.m. concert.
Luke Combs is bringing Nashville to the Lakes Region venue in a 7 p.m. show Saturday. Ray Fulcher is in that opening slot.
In addition, Altimate Tour 2019, a double bill with Bush and Live and opening act Our Lady Peace, is set for 7 p.m. today.
Bush, helmed by lead singer and songwriter Gavin Rossdale, is known for tunes “Glycerine,” “Machinehead,” “The Chemicals Between Us” and “Swallowed.” Its new track, “Bullet Holes,” is on the soundtrack of “John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum.”
Live, with Ed Kowalcyzk at center stage, has had hits with “Lightning Crashes,” “Selling the Drama,” “I Alone” and “All Over You.”
