WWE returning to touring this July, first three events announced


WWE is officially headed back out on the road starting this July.

WWE announced on Friday that their return to holding live events with fans in attendance will begin with the Friday, July 16 episode of SmackDown taking place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. This year's Money in the Bank pay-per-view will then be held at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas on Sunday, July 18. The post-Money in the Bank episode of Raw will take place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on Monday, July 19.

Tickets for those three Texas events will go on sale at 11 a.m. Eastern time this coming Wednesday (May 26).

WWE noted that additional tour stops and on-sale dates will be announced in the coming weeks. WWE will have a 25-city schedule from July 16 through Labor Day.

"As @WWE returns to the road this July, we welcome back our biggest Superstars, YOU, the @WWEUniverse," Paul "Triple H" Levesque tweeted. "We cannot wait to hear, see, and feel the electricity of our live audiences again so I only have one question … #AreYouReady?"

Aside from this year's WrestleMania, these will be WWE's first shows with ticketed fans since March 2020. The WWE Performance Center was initially home to WWE television following the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. WWE then moved to its ThunderDome setup with virtual fans starting in August of last year. Orlando, Florida's Amway Center and Tampa, Florida's Tropicana Field and Yuengling Center have hosted the ThunderDome.

WWE hasn't announced the location of this August's SummerSlam PPV, but Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada is the leading candidate to host the show.
