7 Hot Tickets For This Year's 420

It's never too early to plan for 420 right? Apr. 20, day of all days to celebrate all things cannabis, is less than three months away.

You could stay home, get a little elevated or you could make this one memorable with a night on the town.

Here's a list of shows that are definitely worth the drive, flight and tickets, even if you have to hit up Craigslist or StubHub to get in on them.

1. Pearl Jam

Imagine spending 420 with the best band from Seattle. Pearl Jam announced a 22-city tour for 2016 and already the tickets are bucket-list priced with some secondary market tix reaching $717 already. On Apr. 20, you can catch their show at the PNC Arena Raleigh, North Carolina.

2. Kevin Smith

The man who discovered cannabis as an adult is busy these days with a number of creative endeavours including a new marijuana-themed TV show. But you can catch him live at the Centre Stage Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia on Apr. 20.

3. Rihanna

Grab an umbrella. Barbados-born Rihanna is on tour this spring. Known for her love of cannabis we bet she'll be celebrating 420. You can join her at an arena show at Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

4. Ben Folds

For almost 20 years, piano great and "nerd rocker" Ben Folds has been sharing his distinct tunes - including this one that actually mentions weed - with fans. Ben Fold and yMusic will be playing 420 in St. Petersburg, Florida at the Mahaffey Theatre.

5. Joe Rogan

He's a podcaster, a talk show host, a comedian and a cannabis consumer. And Joe Rogan will grace the stage at the beautiful Moore Theatre in Seattle, Washington on Apr. 20 where it is perfectly legal to enjoy recreational cannabis on 420. Enjoy the show!

6. Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals

If there's someone you must see perform live it's Ben Harper. The singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist all-around cool guy who used cannabis as a muse for tunes like "Burn One Down" will be playing a show on April 20th at the Tennessee Theatre, Knoxville, Tennessee.

7. Father John Misty

Father John Misty's latest album made Billboard's Top 25 last year. Pretty good for an album of "TMI musings" from the "dark end" if his brain. To hear the tunes off I Love You, Honeybear live on 420, book your flight to Toronto where he's playing the iconic Massey Hall in Toronto.
