Get pumped. There are tons of hot shows coming to Connecticut in the next couple of months. We went through all of them and picked out five of the coolest.
Bruce Springsteen, XL Center: Bruce will be traveling down Thunder Road to get into Hartford for another wild performance. The best part? Tickets for the April 24 might be expensive, but they're nowhere near as expensive as what it would have cost you to go see his Superbowl half-time performance. But, good luck getting them.
Dave Matthews, Dodge Music Center: Dave Matthews has a new album coming out just days before the Hartford show on June 5. Matthews in CT has become an annual tradition of sorts. This year will be no exception. And it goes without saying that if you're going to be on the lawn, you'll want to get there uber early.
No Doubt, Mohegan Sun: There's a band we haven't heard in a while. Think back: "Don't Speak" and "Underneath It All." After a four-year break, the Pop/Ska sensation is launching a massive tour with Paramore and Janelle Monae and they'll be here on June 24. Bonus, buy a ticket and download the band's entire digital audio catalog for free.
Coldplay, Dodge Music Center: You know them from songs like "Clocks," "Yellow," "Scientist" and "Speed of Sound." They'll be in Hartford on May 23 and put on one heck of a show.
Dane Cook, Mohegan Sun: The Dane Train is coming to Connecticut. Cook's taking his latest comedy album, ISolated INcident, on the road with his Global Thermo Comedy Tour. He'll be at Mohegan on Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26. Hit the bathroom before the show to avoid wetting yourself. Trust us, you'll laugh like you've never laughed before.
