Think about all of the rock bands announcing farewell tours. I know, I know.  Kiss first announced their farewell tour back in 1999 and just played their last show a month ago.  I’m still not convinced they are finished.  Lynyrd Skynyrd has been saying goodbye for a few years now.  Then you have bands that “retire” only to return to touring a few years later…like Motley Crue.  Or should we call them “Motley Screw”. This had me thinking of rock bands that would make MILLIONS if they were to reunite.

Recently we have heard several bands pack it in and call it a day.  Aerosmith has announced their farewell tour along with the Eagles and Foreigner.  Think about it for a minute.  At this rate, there won’t be any bands to see live anymore!  Thank God for the  Rolling Stones, but time is running out with them as well.  Keith Richards just turned 80 and probably should have been dead 40 years ago.  Is panic setting in yet?  What the hell are we going to do?  Rock is running out of legends and outside of the Foo Fighters, I am having a hard time figuring out who is gonna carry the torch.

So I was thinking about some rock bands out there that should reunite for a tour.  When the Eagles broke up they said they would get back together “When hell freezes over”.  30 years ago it did, and the Eagles cashed in. The same thing happened with Guns’n’Roses.  Well, I put a little list together of the bands that need to reunite.

*** (I am not going to include Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd on the list, because there is no sense in getting people all jacked up over nothing.  It’s never going to happen.

What band do you sit and wish would get over their S- and reunite? Let me know on social media!

  • AC/DC

    These guys never officially broke up.  They played a festival in California last October and that was their first show in 7 years. Do you remember when they replaced lead singer Brian Johnson with G’n’R’s Axl Rose during that last tour?  That was pretty weird, but it looks like that’s all water under the bridge.

  • R.E.M

    I can’t understand why this hasn’t happened yet, but it should.  Their last show was November 18th 2008.  A 15 year break sounds long enough to me.


  • Oasis

    It’s pretty sad that these 2 brothers can’t kiss and make up so they can make hundreds of millions of dollars.  Both Noel and Liam Gallagher have their own bands but don’t draw anywhere near the size of crown they would draw if they just suck it up.
