Ready to return: Venues across Kansas City announce new concerts, rescheduled dates


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A year after COVID-19 silenced live music around the world, concerts are slowing returning to stages.

The Truman announced Thursday that Dinosaur Jr. will play there Sept. 21. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 19 at 10 a.m.

Several other shows are scheduled even sooner at The Truman.

At T-Mobile Center, 2021 may be known as the year of rescheduled events. Justin Bieber is first up with his rescheduled concert on June 16. It will be a busy summer at the arena. Rage Against the Machine is rescheduled for July 7, Megadeth and Lamb of God will perform Aug. 7, and Maroon 5 will be at T-Mobile Center on Aug. 13. Kane Brown rounds out the summer of shows on Sept. 16.

Providence Medical Center Amphitheater is also ready to welcome artists and fans back. Q104’s Yallapalooza is rescheduled for Sept. 2. The amphitheater also announced this week that The Avett Brothers will take the stage there in October.

Music, as well as baseball, will also return to Kauffman Stadium this summer. Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Poison and Joan Jett will be at the ballpark Aug. 24, 2021. The 2020 Stadium Tour show was postponed last year.

The largest music festival planned at this point is Kicker Country Stampede. The country music fest will take place June 24-26 at Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka, Kan.
