Concert news: Stevie Nicks, Toby Keith, Jeff Mangum, Erasure, Martin Lawrence

Stevie Nicks is thankfully back on tour.

She has a new album out, "In Your Dreams," and will kick off the new tour in Denver August 9. 

Nicks, who last toured with Rod Stewart, was one of the first performers to embrace the double-bill model Live Nation, some independent promoters and many artists are pushing this year. 

Nicks will perform at Jiffy Lube Live September 3. Tickets, starting at $26, go on sale Friday. 

Jiffy Lube, which just hosted Jason Aldean, will host another country superstar September 10. 

Toby Keith will perform there as part of his "Locked & Loaded" tour, which sounds very ominous for a concert. Tickets, starting at $29, go on sale Friday. 

Jeff Mangum announced Monday five new shows in the United States, and Baltimore has two of them. Mangum will be at 2640 Space September 26 and 27. Tickets, at $27, go on sale Wednesday.

Erasure will go on tour for the first time in five years in August. The tour, which promotes new album "Tomorrow's World," stops by the 9:30 Club September 6 and 7. Ticket information is not available yet. 

Martin Lawrence will perform at 1st Mariner Arena August 21. The venue and promoter have not sent out any press releases about the show with ticket information. I saw a flier about it last week while at the Sade concert.

Incubus will perform at Merriweather Post Pavilion September 11. Tickets, which start at $40, go on sale June 17.
