The Recording Academy released their 64th Annual Grammy Award nominations a few weeks ago. Surprises, snubs, and a Drake controversy immediately followed, setting the usual scene for music lovers everywhere to gossip and deliberate. Now that some of the dust has settled, we want to talk about the other side of this: all of the Grammy-nominated artists getting ready to tour next year.
When it comes to concert tours in 2022, the future is bright. We need only to look at the list of 64th Annual Grammy Award Nominees to prove it. Here are 15 Grammy Nominees Touring Next Year, just a few musicians Who Will Tour in 2022.

Unsurprisingly, the sophomore album from Billie Eilish has won the artist several Grammy nods, including: Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Music Video (for the album’s title track), and Best Music Film.
We have no doubt in our minds that Billie Eilish will win big at the Grammy awards. But to be honest, we’re even more excited for her to begin the “Happier Than Ever World Tour.” Beginning in February Eilish will celebrate the success of her latest, Happier Than Ever. Eilish will be joined by fellow artists Willow Smith, Jessie Reyez, Duckwrth, Jungle, Arlo Parks, and Girl in Red on the “Happier Than Ever Tour.”

It’s no surprise that Olivia Rodrigo was nominated in most major categories for the 2022 Grammys. Record of the year, song of the year, best pop vocal album, best new artist, and more, Olivia Rodrigo is one of the artists with the most nominations in 2022.
And, beginning in April, she’s going on tour. To celebrate the wicked success and reception of her debut album Sour, Olivia Rodrigo will be performing throughout the spring and early summer. We expect even more “Sour” tour dates to be announced for 2022, especially since the schedule sold-out so quickly.
H.E.R, with Coldplay
On Tour: April 23, 2022 – June 14, 2022
Album of the year, song of the year, best R&B performance, best traditional R&B performance, best R&B song, best R&B album—and that’s not even naming them all. Though we’ve been up on the brilliance, the beauty, of H.E.R for awhile now, Gabriella Wilson’s abundance of Grammy nods is outright impressive.
In 2022, H.E.R can be seen touring with Coldplay. The lengthy tour, spanning three continents, will hit mostly large-scale arenas. Coldplay has promised an Eco-Friendly tour, aiming to cut down on their carbon emissions from previous tours by 50%. H.E.R, most likely on her last tour as a supporting act, continues her step towards greatness. We hope you get a chance to see H.E.R during this phase of her journey.
Clairo, Arlo Parks, and Widowspeak
On Tour: February 16, 2022 – April 10, 2022

Produced in part by Tyler, the Creator, Temporary Highs In The Violet Skies is the first album from the Swedish singer that feels, truly, her own.

On Tour: March 18, 2022 – April 23, 2022
It seems that Lucky Daye is one of the few Grammy-nominated musicians to be present in categories for both adults and children. But we consider this a testament to his sterling vocals, his sound that can be consumed across generations young and old.
This spring, Lucky Daye will embark on the “2022 Candydrip” Tour with support from Joyce Wrice. Though Lucky Daye has been nominated for his latest collaborative album Table for Two, the artist is already getting ready to release a new album in 2022. Candydrip will contain the two singles Lucky Daye released this year, “Over” and the album’s title track.
Tyler, the Creator
On Tour: February 10, 2022 – April 8, 2022
Now, for the third year in a row, Tyler, the Creator has been nominated in the Grammy awards best rap album category. Will Tyler, the Creator be able to celebrate winning best rap album of the year for the second year in a row? We love when a reigning champion has the chance to keep their title.
Call Me If You Get Lost, well-received and praised upon its release, is making the rounds on several end of year lists as well. We’re happy for Tyler, the Creator, the expansion of his artistic persona into just about every medium. We’re even happier that he’ll be going on tour in 2022. The “Call Me If You Get Lost” tour is a 34-date arena tour, plotted across the major U.S cities throughout this spring. Tyler the Creator is definitely one of the best rap concerts you’ll be able to attend in 2022.
On Tour: March 18, 2022 – August 19, 2022
It’s about to be another eventful year, filled with performances, for Chris Stapleton. The 2022 Grammys have nominated the famous country singer/songwriter all throughout his genre, in the best country album, best country song, and best country solo performance categories.
