The week after Thanksgiving still had plenty of reason to be thankful, especially where new tour announcements were concerned.

Some major 2024 tours were revealed, led by Avenged Sevenfold taking out Poppy and Sullivan King, Godsmack stripping things back on their "Vibez" tour and Steel Panther keeping things hot during the winter months.

We also learned a little more about the 2024 edition of Milwaukee Metalfest and saw a pretty cool benefit helping out Bad Brains vocalist H.R. announced.

What will you be getting tickets for? Check out all the new major tour, show and festival announcements below.
