Sam Smith, Franz Ferdinand and Judas Priest all headed to Seattle in the coming weeks and months

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

The Music Lounge was on a break for a few weeks and in that time a slew of new concerts were announced. Here are some of the artists who are Seattle-bound in the coming weeks and months.

Sam Smith is finally returning to the Emerald City next fall, as part of his forthcoming 'The Thrill of It All Tour.' The openly gay singer-songwriter, who rose to international fame with his major label debut In the Lonely Hour in 2014, will release a new album on November 3 that matches the title of his tour. Smith is set to perform September 8, 2018 at Key Arena. For tickets, go to www.stgpresents.org.

Also returning to Seattle is alternative rock group Franz Ferdinand, who've interviewed multiple times with Seattle Gay News. The band has booked a date at The Showbox Market next month, as part of a nationwide tour, although to my knowledge they are not promoting a new album; however, the four-piece has released a few singles in the past two years, including the anti-Trump number 'Demagogue.' Tickets to see Franz Ferdinand on December 4 are on sale now at www.aeglive.com.

Metal legend Judas Priest, led by gay frontman Rob Halford, are performing live again next year to promote a new album, Firepower, that doubles as their road outing title, 'The Judas Priest: Firepower 2018 Tour.' Besides Halford, the tour will feature guitarists Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner, bassist Ian Hill and drummer Scott Travis. Judas Priest will play the Accesso Showare Center in Kent on April 15. Tickets are on sale now at www.LiveNation.com, www.accessoShoWareCenter.com, the Accesso ShoWare Center Box Office, or charge by phone at (866) 973-9613.

Here are more new concerts to announce: St. Vincent at the Moore Theatre on January 18 and 19, Queens of the Stone Age at Key Arena on January 25, First Aid Kit at the Moore Theatre on January 28, Clean Bandit at The Showbox Market on March 27, Weird Al Yankovic at the Moore Theatre on May 29 and Kenny Chesney at CenturyLink Field on July 7.

Speaking of Judas Priest, the hard rock icons are one of several nominated acts vying for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Joining them on the ballot are Bon Jovi, Kate Bush, The Cars, Depeche Mode, Dire Straits, Eurythmics, J. Geils Band, LL Cool J, MC5, The Meters, Moody Blues, Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, Nina Simone, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Link Wray and The Zombies. An international voting body of more than 900 artists, historians and members of the music industry will cast their votes to decide the actual nominees, who will be inducted early in 2018.

The Grammy Awards are returning to New York City for the first time since 2003. After a 15-year run in LA, 'Music's Biggest Night' is being stage at Madison Square Garden in late January. The nominations are being revealed on November 28.

You may have heard, but it's worth re-mentioning, that Justin Timberlake has been tapped to headline the upcoming Super Bowl Halftime Show on February 4 in Minneapolis. It's the pop star's first appearance on the NFL championship game since the infamous 'Nipplegate' performance with Janet Jackson, in which she bared part of her breast due to a 'wardrobe malfunction.' Timberlake will likely perform a medley of songs, including 'SexyBack,' 'My Love' and his Oscar-nominated hit 'Can't Stop the Feeling'; unknown is whether his former N'Sync bandmates will join him for a reunion.

Finally, if you were planning on seeing Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band at Key Arena on November 11, then you'll need to change your plans because the concert is postponed due to Seger's unexpected surgery to repair a pinched vertebra in his neck. A rescheduled date will be announced soon.
