D’Angelo, Erykah Badu on the same bill, and other big D.C. shows on sale soon

May 2, 2013

With Bob Dylan, Wilco, Counting Crows, and Patty Griffin going on sale, it's a great week for Americana tickets. Then again, with Diana Ross, Erykah Badu and D'Angelo also going on sale, it's a great week for soul, too. Lil Wayne and Ke$ha make it a solid week for chart-topping pop star tickets, and straight-up rock-and-roll is doing alright with Robert Plant and ZZ Top. Check out these shows going on sale this week:
