On the Road: 10 Summer Tours You Shouldn't Miss

Who says every show needs to be a rager? Sit back and enjoy mellow, modern-day blues courtesy of velvet-voiced Norah Jones and the Handsome Band. Already well into her tour, Jones winds down her U.S. leg on June 30 before heading off to Europe. Didn't manage to catch her? Never fear -- she plays "Good Morning America's" Summer Concert series on Friday, July 6.


8. The Fray

This radio-friendly four-man band is teaming up with Reverb, a nonprofit dedicated to raising awareness about environmental causes, to insure their tour will be as eco-friendly as possible. The band will be riding carbon-neutral buses during their June 11 - August 6 schedule, though the blogosphere has been buzzing with rumors of potential add-on dates. Special appearances by Ok Go! and Mae have been announced.


9. Michael Bublé

Crooner Michael Bublé, whose swingy reinterpretations of old standards like "I've Got You Under My Skin" and "Always On My Mind" are exciting generations not yet born when the original versions debuted, is circling the United States between July and August before heading off to Western Europe until December. The Canadian is scheduled to play many of the nation's greatest venues -- including New York's Radio City Music Hall and Los Angeles' Greek Theater -- the perfect settings for his style, but small enough that ticket demand will be intense.


10. Incubus

Alternative rockers Incubus take to the road to promote their latest album, "Light Grenades." With the record's first single, "Oil and Water," already tearing up the radio, the seemingly ancient act (they've been together since 1991) should attract new fans -- which means you'll face stiffer competition for seats. Things kick off in Tucson, Ariz., on July 7.
