These Are the Concert Tours You Don’t Want to Miss This Year
Isn’t it so great to see one of your favorite bands or singers performing live in concert?
Yes, it CAN be an experience of a lifetime!
These memories are something we look back on for most of our time.
I mean everyone remembers going to their first concerts, right – Guns and Roses, Nirvana, and Metallica? And if you’ve been lucky to attend AC/DC live, you’ll cherish that memory for the rest of your life.
So, now the winter is gone and the new year has officially begun, we have compiled a list of must-watch 2018 concert tours. Some of these musical tours have already started, while others are just beginning.
In today’s post, you’ll discover top concert tours, plus info such as concert dates and tickets so that you know when and where you can watch these talented artists play live.
1. Taylor Swift
Just three years ago, Taylor hit the road with her 1989 World Tour that ran from May until December the same year.
Now, in 2018 again, T. Swift will be hitting the road with her Reputation Stadium Tour, which is set to kick off in early May 2018, starting from Arizona, until November, before wrapping her musical tour in New Zealand just a few days before her birthday.
Taylor doesn’t play around much, but when she does, she sets out to make it a SENSATIONAL global event.
In September 2017, Lorde hit the road with her Melodrama World Tour. She performed to her fans in the UK and also went to Australia before taking a much-deserved break.
So, if you missed her the first time or thought you wouldn’t see her anytime soon in the US, here’s good news to you: she’s set to be in the Americas in early March this year and throughout the spring.
Pink also has similar plans like Lorde: she is also going to hit the road with her Beautiful Trauma World Tour in the US this March, 2018.
Since 2014, Pink has not been on a musical tour.
And, you know HOW Pink is.
All she has to do is hit the stage while still in her sleep and everyone on the audience seat would be impressed.
At the concert, don’t forget to check out her signature aerial stunts.
4. Shania Twain
You know what’s so unique about artists like Shania Twain?
They can take a decade or two off and still return to the stage to sold-out shows.
Well, she hasn’t take THAT long. However, it’s been almost three years since Shania Twain has ventured out on a tour of size like this.
On her Now Tour, Shania will hit her native country Canada, followed by the US and the UK – from early May before wrapping her tour in October in 2018.
And, would you believe if we told you that Now was Shania’s fifth studio album? Quite shocking, isn’t it? Yeah, it is!
5. Harry Styles
It’s been a long time since we’ve heard of any boy bands. Probably, boy bands just what people prefer now.
Everybody knew that Justin Timberlake was going to be bigger than the band NSYNC, which is a similar story to what we also hear about Harry Styles from One Direction.
When One Direction decided to lead their career doing the solo thing, it was crystal clear from the start that Harry was going to do well.
In September 2017, he hit the road with his tour.
Since then, he has not had a looooong holiday break. And, this time again, he is set to continue with his musical tour into the new year until through the fall.
His shows that are almost a year away are already sold out by his eager fans!
6. Niall Horan
If there is one artist that can attract a massive audience the way Harry Styles does, it would be none other than his bandmate, Niall Horan.
These two artists have different styles, so their fans can expect something different from their solo acts.
Well, he might not be the next Justin Timberlake of One Direction, Niall is certainly doing his thing well, this year too.
He is set to hit not one or two but four continents with his Flicker World Tour, and almost 80 dates are booked.
And, the tour is scheduled to begin in March 2018 and wrap in September – meaning fans have plenty of time to check him perform on stage.
Does it feel it’s been a very long time since Shakira hit the road and toured? If it feels that way to you, it probably must be true!
In 2010 and 2011, she toured the world with her The Sun Comes Out World Tour.
It’s not that she has been sitting idling and doing nothing ever since, but it’s also true that we haven’t heard or seen her perform for quite a long time.
That’s because, since her first musical tour, she has had two little boys.
No, we’re not sure if they’ll join her on her upcoming El Dorado World Tour. We certainly hope they do, though!
8. Kylie Minogue
Of course we have saved the best until last. This is the CONCERT that I really hope to go and see this year! Kylie Minogue will be performing her GOLDEN tour and I for one cannot wait!
