Pop & Rock Concert Highlights for Prague, Spring & Summer 2012

ColdplayOne of our most popular destinations is also a hotspot for pop and rock musicians – there’s often a Prague leg on their European tours.

This year is no exception and it’s a banner year for rock and metal fans with Springsteen, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Pearl Jam and the Red Hot Chili Peppers all putting in appearances.

Links go straight to places you can buy tickets (other than for Black Sabbath – that’s sold out so your best bet is trying to find someone selling their tickets on the classifieds section of a site like Expats.cz.
