Bonnaroo 2011: Manchester, TennesseeThe 10th edition of the Bonnaroo Festival hasn't announced which artists are going to appear on its stages in Manchester, Tennessee, between June 9 and 12 of next year, but a presale will take place on Black Friday for those people who want to stake their claim early. The first allotment of three-day tickets for the genre-spanning fest -- which last year featured Jay-Z, Conan O'Brien, Dave Matthews Band, Tori Amos and a slew of other artists -- will be available at a limited price of $209.50, and the price will go up to $242.50 after those tickets sell out. The presale begins at noon ET. [Bonaroo]

Kid Rock: Around The U.S. Fresh off the release of the Rick Rubin-produced Born Free, Kid Rock has announced that he'll kick off a U.S. tour with a hometown show at Detroit's Ford Field on January 15. Jamey Johnson will open the concert, which will double as a birthday celebration for the singer. For those who don't want to wait until January (or who won't be in Detroit then), Rock will play at Ford Field next week; he's headlining the halftime show of the Thanksgiving NFL contest between the New England Patriots and the Detroit Lions.

Paul McCartney: The Apollo, New York Fresh off licensing the Beatles' catalog to iTunes, McCartney will make another nod to the digital future with a December 13 concert saluting Sirius XM at New York's Apollo Theater. Tickets to the concert are only available to subscribers to the satellite-radio service, which will also program Paul McCartney's Band On The Run Radio — a channel dedicated to all his work, from the Beatles to the Fireman — between November 30 and December 26.

Robert Plant & The Band Of Joy: Around North America Robert Plant & The Band Of Joy — in which the Led Zeppelin frontman is joined by Patty Griffin, Darrell Scott, Byron House, Marco Giovino and Buddy Miller — have announced a second leg of dates around the U.S. and Canada. The 15-date jaunt kicks off on January 19 at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium in Asheville, N.C. [Ticket News]
